All cooking classes by Yuko

Hi there!
I’m Yuko from Tokyo.
I’d like to speak with foreign tourists. I like to tell you our Japanese culture and learn various foreign cultures.
I’ve been in London when I was a primary school student for a year and I did homestay in England during my university summer holidays.
I’ve traveled to almost 30 countries in my life.
I used to host many tourists as home visits at my house before Covid-19. I invited my guests from around the world. Recently, I video chat with my English language partner.
This time, I’d like to have meals with you all. If you have spare time, we can cook together. I ordinarily work on weekdays. So I can hold the class on weekends or sometimes Weekdays.
If you interested my profile, take a look at my menu.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.
I’m looking forward to meeting you!

Reviews of Cooking Class

Daniel Spark, Australia


The partner and I found the class with Yuko as the highlight of the day. Our takoyaki was better than alot that we have previously tried, Yoku was lovely to be around, and she made our experience seem like a good investment for the day. Ps Yuko, you have given us the inspiration to make a crane origami tree for the house! Highly recommend
