I’m Nariko and I offer Japanese cooking classes out of Nariko’s Kitchen, a cooking studio located in Kawagoe. It takes only 30 minutes from center of Tokyo. Kawagoe is a town of history retaining the culture and aroma of Edo-era. It's one of the most popular places to visit in outside of Tokyo.
I was a child who always liked to help my mother in the kitchen. I gained more interest on cooking when I lived abroad and had a chance to do cooking sessions as part of my job. I’ve been teaching Japanese cooking in Malaysia as a cooking instructor and conducted classes for individuals and companies, and also gave cooking demonstration at cultural events.
Come join me and try a hands-on cooking class offered in a Japanese home. And enjoy the beautiful town after the class!

I really enjoyed Nariko's class! Making the japanese sweets and matcha was a great experience. She answered every question I had and I was able to write each step down on my notebook and take photos, so that I will be able to make Nerikiri by myself when I'm back home. Also, her english is really good which makes conversation and following her instructions easy. I had a lot of fun with her! Thank you very much!
