Nice to meet you♡
My name is Yuko.

Since my son was a junior high school student, I taught international students how to cook as a host family, and in 2007 I started holding cooking classes at my home.

The international students who came to our home,
Since I started giving priority to Japanese-style dashi, which is the basics of Kyoto cuisine, I have been teaching lessons based on cooking using dashi.

I would like everyone to learn about Japanese home cooking and the wonderful culture of Japan.

  • 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.

  • Miso Soup

    Miso Soup

    Miso soup is a traditional Japanese soup. It's base is "dashi" (Japanese fish stock) and Miso paste. Common added ingredients are Tofu, Green onion and deep‐fried tofu but differs by personal preference. The type of miso is different from region. In western and Easter Japan white miso is mostly used.

I was born and grew up in Kyoto.
I would like you to taste the taste of vegetables and rice which are harvested in this place.

I believe that Japanese food should be casual and daily food. So I want to cook with the japanese dish whichi is focused on the taste od the material itself, harvested for local cconsumption and healthy for your body.

Reviews of Cooking Class

Lei, Australia


This review is from Lei & Ellie. We were warmly welcomed by Yuko into her home. She made us feel comfortable and taught us the skill of making Onigiri with our hands and with utensils. Steps were easy to follow. We also got to enjoy her home made Miso soup. The best I've ever had! Yuko is a wonderful teacher and we thoroughly enjoyed our time.

Ellie and I really enjoyed our time with Yuko. She taught us the traditional and easy way these are prepared. There were a good choice of fillings to use. We were also fortunate to be servsome of Yuko's delicious home made Miso soup. It was the best I've tasted and wished mine was as delicious. We were warmly welcomed by Yuko and felt very comfortable bringing her home. Arigato gozaimasu

Yuko is a great host. She showed me how to make miso soup and different kinds of onigiri. She was very well-prepared and she had even considered my dietary restrictions (no meat) and my personal preferences, so we made my favorite onigiri. She also gave me a lot of tips on specific products and where to buy them. Yuko is very nice and a good teacher, I had a really great time with her onigiri workshop!
