Cooking Class Information

In this class, each table is divided into four to five people, and one instructor will proceed with the lesson.

Character Bento is a handmade dish that Japanese mothers make with love.
All of the side dishes packed in the bento are popular with children, and they are handmade in consideration of the nutritional aspect and the cuteness of the appearance.

All of the staff are experienced instructors who have taught lessons to group guests. Some of them are expert instructors who have taught in cooking classes for more than 20 years. In addition, there is also a professional dietitian, so we will choose the ingredients that can be eaten with peace of mind and cook them. And everyone will teach with all their hearts.

It is possible to correspond even in a large number of people. And the bento containers to use use renewable paper products. We try to avoid food as much as possible.

All cooking classes by Yoshie



I have been making bento boxes for my family for over 10 years. Since 2017, I have been a cooking class instructor for foreigners, and have taught more than 300 foreigners how to make character bento.

I have taught my skills to friends who want to master making character lunch box, and I have also had the experience of being interviewed by several media outlets about my bento making.

On weekends and long vacations, my husband and teenage daughter are there, so they greet everyone. Please come in contact with a Japanese family. On days other than cooking class, I work as an English teacher at a kindergarten in the city. I can treat even small children politely, so family members are welcome to participate!

In August 2017, I participated in the International Character Lunch box Contest and won the prize.

I've helped Make a Wish, the volunteer organization that makes the world's largest dreams come true, by carrying out character lunch box lessons for a Make a Wish child.

Yoshie's cooking class was amazing! She asked me beforehand which character I would like to make, and all recipe was prepared according to that. Cooking class was easy and fun to follow. I loved how caring she was! Thank you for the amazing time.

Thank you Gemma, My house is an hour from the city center, but thank you for liking the general atmosphere of Japan people in a quiet residential area. I am very happy that you took many pictures of the finished handmade lunch box. I'm happy to have a memory of your trip to Japan.

We had the best time making bento with Yoshie!!! It was such a special experience to be invited into her kitchen and learn how she prepares character bento. She made the process easy and fun, and we all came away with a box that looked like something from a magazine!! Even my 7 year old had a fabulous time and was successful in making his first Pikachu Bento. My 10 year old girls also enjoyed their Hello Kitty bento. In addition to learning the preparation techniques, we also got to taste a few new foods--going through the process of cooking things like the Japanese egg omelette made it much more accessible for my children, who don't always enjoy new flavors. This is something that we will bring back to our home in the United States and make a regular part of our meal prep--she made it that simple!! I will also note that Yoshie is fluent in English, which was so helpful with my sadly non-Japanese-speaking American family. I'm so glad that we signed up--meeting Yoshie and cooking with her has been the highlight of our trip to Japan. Thank you Yoshie for an amazing day!!

Hello Rachel, Thank you for posting your wonderful review. This will be very helpful for future guests, especially families with children. My daughter said your children were cute and she wanted to spend more time with them. It was a typical home-cooked meal in an ordinary Japanese kitchen, but I was really happy that your children enjoyed each and every meal. It motivates me to continue this lesson. I sincerely hope that your family will always be happy. ARIGATO, Yoshie

Our bento box course was a lot of fun! Yoshie made us feel at home and gave us detailed instructions so we could make our bento boxes just as beautiful as hers. With this experience we will definitely make it at home :)

Hi Albert, Thank you for the great review. I was very happy to have the opportunity to work with you on a TV shoot, which was a very valuable experience for me. You and your girlfriend were witty and your comments were wonderful, and of course the bento box was perfect. I was happy because your bento was better than mine. When you return to Germany, please recreate the lunch box you made with me. Thank you for making fun memories together. Yoshie

My 9year old daughter and I had a fabulous time with Yoshie! She helped us make exactly the bento box character my daughter wanted. Her English was very good so communication was not a problem. She was very enthusiastic and patient with my daughter which made the overall experience excellent. I would highly recommend Yoshie for those interested in cooking classes.

I was so happy to meet your family. Above all, I was relieved to be able to respond to your daughter's request! I learn a lot from many guests every time. It was fun to have a lot of conversations with parents who care about their children. Thank you for participating in my lessons. Yoshie

My family had a delightful time with Yoshie! We are so glad we did this class! While our kids are teenagers, they are more likely to remember making a Pokemon themed bento box then if we had just taken a generic Japanese cuisine cooking class. It made it so much more fun! Yoshie is fluent in English, and made getting to her home so easy. We all loved working with her! Thank you, Amy & family

Thank you for quietly concentrating on during the lesson. During meals and in the car, we were able to talk a lot and we didn't have enough time. I am glad that it is a moment to get a glimpse of Japan culture. Please continue to be a wonderful family. Thanks so much.

Hi Natasha, Thank you for taking my lessons with your family. I am very happy that I was able to provide a memorable experience in Japan. It was spring break in Japan, so my daughter was happy to help out. When you go back to Canada, please make a Totoro bento with the rolled omelette that we made together. Take care!

I am Vietnamese but living in Germany. I went to Tokyo for the first time on a 2 week tour. I took a bento making class. I learned the basics of how to make bento rice. The class is very relaxed and fun. Next time I come back to Tokyo, I will sign up for another course
