Takako is a wonderful host, a great teacher and a true cook (she even ferments her own miso!), and making gyozas together with her in her beautiful home was kind of a zen experience to us. Arigato, and a hug also to Lana!

Hi Takako, we had a great time today, starting from the walk through the park and to your lovely home. We were impressed by how prepared you were and your encouragement through the whole process. We enjoy cooking proper Japanese gyozas along with a wonderful salad dressing for a salad and miso soup. The process was well explained and we are now confident that with a bit of practice we will be making gyozas in our own home as good as you do. We are looking forward to book ourselves in another cooking class next time we are back in Tokyo. Thanks for everything, it was so great to meet you.
