Hi, I'm Hanayo.
I live in a very very small town, called Akaigawa Hokkaido where is located between Niseko and Otaru. 45 mins drive from both places.
We get lots of fresh seafood here, so I often make sushi. I also enjoy having people from other countries and share the food I cook. Last year, I had guests from Taiwan, Australia, and Canada.
And I hope to have more opportunities to share my time cooking with you.
*If you have a car, you will be welcomed to come to my house directly. I will give you the directions. Please let me know.
