Hello! My name is Izumi. Now I live in suburban Tokyo, where the Ghibli movie "My Neighbour Totoro" was set.We’ll cook Japanese dishes in my house in suburban Tokyo, which is full of nature.( in Totoro forest area). On the way to my home, you will see the hospital where Satsuki & Mei's Mom is said to have been hospitalised. (The movie "My Neighbor Totoro")
Once I lived in Virginia State, USA for two years when my kids were small. The elementary school where my son went had so many international students from over 70 countries, and I cooked Japanese food at the school festival. The memories I had there through exchanging cultures and cooking were amazing! Now I have a qualification for the Japan association of cooking for foreigners, and teach them Japanese cuisine, such as sushi. There are sushi classes as well as vegan and vegetarian classes. In Japan, there are so many ingredients ideal for vegan and vegetarian dishes. You will be surprised how delicious vegan and vegetarian dishes could be.

Cooking with Izumi was amazing! She was an incredibly gracious host. The Japanese-style vegan food we cooked together was so amazing! I had dishes I had never heard before and was able to try new foods, which Izumi provided explanation for. I feel like vegan food in Japan can sometimes be difficult to find or get recipes for, so this is a great opportunity to explore some more eco-friendly food options. Everything turned out so delicious! Izumi thoughtfully provided the recipes for me so I've been able to try and recreate the dishes at home as well!

Izumi-san was such a lovely host, and my group had a very fun time learning how to cook a vegan meal with her! Although none of us were vegan, we thought that the meal was absolutely DELICIOUS. I highly recommend the meal to both vegans and non-vegans, and especially to those looking for a fun Japanese cooking experience :) Her house is in a suburb of Tokyo, but it is very accessible from downtown and in a beautiful area. Thank you Izumi-san for making us feel so comfortable in your home, and providing us with a very memorable experience!
Response from Izumi
Michelle, thank you for coming to my cooking class! You were interested in cooking and Japanese ingredients. There are very good ingredients for vegans in Japan, but they are also very healthy for non-vegans. Your smile was so cute! I love your smile. Enjoy cooking at your home! Thank you!
