  • Gyoza


    Gyoza is a dumpling using wrapping thing dough to hold the inner ingredients. Most commonly, minced pork, cabbage, Garlic and Leek. The origin of Gyoza is from China but it has evolved uniquely in Japan and now quite different from the Chinese one.

  • Udon


    Udon (うどん) is a type of thick wheat flour noodle. It is similar to Italian pasta, but much thicker. It has been eaten all over Japan as an easy-to-eat popular meal, and a substitute meal for rice dishes. Udon is often served hot as a noodle soup in its simplest form, as "kake udon", in a mildly flavoured broth called kakejiru, which is made of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. The flavor of broth and topping vary from region to region.

  • Rice


    Rice is a staple food in Japan. In all most every family, there is a rice cooker. There is variety of Japanese rice brands such as Koshihikari and Hitomebore.

Cooking Class Information

【food information】
Making udon noodles from scratch is a fun and unique experience that
requires simple ingredients. The broth and vegetable garnishes
highlight flavors unique to Japan that are difficult to replicate
elsewhere. Gyoza is a well-known dish around the world, but nothing
compares to the taste of freshly hand-made fillings! It's an excellent
party dish to make for your friends and family after returning home.
As for Ichigo Daifuku, it is a popular and simple Japanese sweet that
looks very cute. I'll teach everything you need to know to recreate
these Japanese dishes in your own kitchen!

【the attraction of the cooking class】
This private cooking class will take place in my cozy home kitchen in
Omori, Tokyo. Since I am a hotel concierge, I'm also more than happy
to recommend you local sightseeing spots and restaurants. In addition
to cooking, I'd love to share conversations with you about travel and
answer any questions you have about Japan. I look forward to hearing
from you!

【recommended for】
Everyone is welcome to enjoy my cooking class, from those who are
interested in Japanese ingredients to those who love conversation to
those who simply love to eat!

Our cooking class with Junko was amazing, a definite highlight on our trip to Tokyo. She is a kind, very knowledgeable and fun host. My daughter and I had a challenge with the trains and were late to our pick up destination and she graciously waited for us. The class was very organized, she made it easy to learn and nice we came away with the recipe and skills so we can make the items back at home. Also, it was a great pleasure to sit with Junko and visit while we enjoyed the items we had just prepared. Thank you for a great afternoon!

Junko showed us how to make Udon, Gyoza, and strawberry daifuku with the most delicious strawberries I’ve ever had. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow. The result was a very tasty lunch. I’m definitely making all of it when I return home.

We had an amazing cooking class with Junko. She was very organised and learned is very well how to cook Udon, Gyoza and Daifuki. She also had great tips on how we can cook it at home and where to get the ingredients. Was also very fun to chat with her about the Japanese culture. Can totally recommend! :)

Junko was amazing! Our group absolutely enjoyed learning to cook Udon, Gyoza, and Strawberry Daifuku with her. It was the perfect Thanksgiving lunch away from home. Not only was the food delicious, but she was extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home. It was an outstanding afternoon!
