Nice to meet you! It's been 5 years since we opened a cafe cozy where we learned together and grew up together. We offer home-cooked dishes made by moms. Asaka City, Saitama Prefecture is a peaceful area with abundant nature, such as a vegetable-growing field and a walk along the Kurome River. I want foreigners to feel the calm and gentle atmosphere of Japan.

Onigiri are a great source of energy. They are indispensable to Japanese cooks of all ages because they are easy to eat – even with one hand. From kids on school trips, to hardworking dads, busy womed and grandparents, onigiri and their various fillings are loved by everyone.
Rice is a staple food for Japanese people – not only for its excellent nutritional value, but also because it goes well with so many other ingredients. For example, soy. Anybody who has enjoyed a Japanese meal must know that miso soup, which is made from soy, always comes with rice. Miso is a fermented food, and very healthy. Onigiri are simple – but somehow, they are right for almost any ingredient. Feel free to make onigiri with any filling. For example, beef steak, fried and grilled fish, or even something from your own country’s culinary culture.
Both children and adults can make onigiri. It may be a little tricky at first, but you’ll soon get the knack with practice. Making onigiri can be satisfying – especially when a loved one enjoys what you’ve created. That person would surely be smiling.
Finally, I’m going to let you in on a little secret for making delicious onigiri. That is, to make the triangular or round shape with gentle pressure and love. One single onigiri, and the care that goes into it, is a reflection of the Japanese mindset. A life filled with onigiri is certainly better than one without.

This was such a wonderful experience that I’d highly recommend. Naoko & Chinatsu were wonderful hosts & I am very grateful to them. I was picked up from the station and taken to the building were the course was, each stage was spoken through and I got very involved with the process. I was given a very sweet gift at the end which I was very touched by.
