What a lovely experience! Cooking with Nahoko was a highlight of our stay in Tokyo. The atmosphere during the class is light and fun, while learning so many tips and tricks for good ramen. The recipe is so tasty and I will sure recreate it at home. Definitely a 5 star experience.
Elke Cefariello, Germany★★★★★
Our Ramen cooking class with Nahoko was a lot of fun! We signed up the online class but joined in person class, which was a great experience and highly recommended.
I had a lot of fun cooking ramen and gyoza with Nahoko. The food was so delicious! And the cooning instructions from Nahoko were cleary stated, so you can follow her easily. Thank you very much!
Adam Hawkins, Australia★★★★★
I thoroughly enjoyed our time with Nahoko! She is a lovely person and great teacher. The gyozas and ramen were the best I've ever tasted (and not just because we helped cook them ;) Nahoko is very attentive when it comes to hygene and cleaning which is extra important in recent times. I would highly recommend her class!
Our cooking experience with Nahoko was great! we spent 4 hours in her Tokyo home where we prepared food together and enjoyed a meal. We also were lucky enough to meet her husband who joined us for dinner. Two of the nicest people we met on our whole trip!
Richard Martin, United States of America★★★★★
Our entire experience with Nahoko was perfect! Her directions were very clear and we found her house with no issues! Her house was very clean and very nicely styled. We felt right at home! Nahoko made us feel welcome at all times and ensured we were comfortable. Next, the food was incredible. Nahoko guided us along and explained to us what made her Ramen and Gyoza special. We love Gyoza, and we’ve had a bunch of different places before. But I can say without a doubt that Nahoko’s gyoza is the best gyoza I’ve ever had! Nahoko has the perfect balance of instruction and demonstration, so we felt included every step of the way. Her Ramen was so unique and tasty too! It was a truly special recipe that tasted full of love and care. All in all, you cannot go wrong spending your afternoon with Nahoko. We had so much fun and had wonderful conversation with her husband and her. We recommend everyone come by to learn about making ramen and gyoza with Nahoko!
Boy oh boy, what a night! Spending the night with Nahoko and doing her cooking class was honestly the best way to finish our trip. She was incredibly welcoming and super informative, we learnt so much about traditional Japanese style cooking. Thanks so much for everything Nahoko, it was an absolute treat!
Excellent class! Nahoko was very kind and welcoming, and the food was very good! Nahoko provided detailed information on the cooking process and the ingredients to ensure that we can make tasty Japanese food at home. Highly recommended class!
Hi Nahoko, Alan, Vincent and me were really happy to attend your class! We learn a lot about japan cuisine and really enjoy the meal ! The visit of kokubunji was really nice and interesting we got a nice last day to Japan and will remember it ;) ! We wish you the best for the next , keep going !
It was a great class with Nahoko, we learned a lot and have fun
sophie bidon, France★★★★★
I had a great time cooking with Nahoko. Recipe we're great. Thanks Nahoko for the warm welcome and your help for shopping gyoza doe after the class.
Nice experience with Nahoko. Hope to do it again for sushi lesson.
Alicia Navetta, United States of America★★★★★
The cooking class was excellent! We made ramen dough from scratch, slow cooked chicken, soft boiled eggs, and two different gyoza fillings. I really enjoyed how the class was structured. We spent a lot of time making the pasta noodles and filling the gyoza, and I now feel very comfortable with both of these skills. It was great to get a refresher on using a pasta roller, and I'd never used the smallest noodle setting before. I've made gyoza before on my own and didn't expect to learn very much from this part of the class. But Nahoko shared many tips and tricks to get the filling and frying just right. I'm very excited to make gyoza again with these additions. Her filling recipes are also really delicious. Nahoko made the ramen broth before we arrived (I know it has to cook for a long time), but we got to add a few things to the broth, so it felt like we were still contributing to it. The class took about 4 hours, and we were busy the whole time. That's about the maximum amount of time I can pay attention. The class was well structured and I'm not sure how to improve the timing. We spent a lot of time on things that require practice (like filling gyoza), and got to watch many things that were very quick (like the chicken and eggs). The class gave us a very good understanding of both dishes, and I look forward to making them at home. Thanks, Nahoko!!
Klara Käferböck, Austria★★★★★
We totally enjoyed Nahoko's cooking class - I can only recommend booking her Ramen and Gyoza Class :-). Nahoko is such a lovely and kind person - she explained everything very well and we had a really good time at her beautiful home. I'm already looking forward to cooking her recipes for my family and friends at home :) We first made two kinds of Gyoza (her new recipe is also very nice), and then we made ramen noodle dough and the toppings. Nahoko had already prepared the broth before we came to her house, but she told us how to make it and I also expected it like this, cause Ramen broth takes a time to simmer. After flavouring the broth, we enjoyed a really amazing bowl of Ramen <3 Thank you very much, Nahoko, for this nice afternoon, it was a pleasure for us :)
Nahidah, United States of America★★★★★
Nahoko’s class was a pleasure. She is dedicated to her art of cooking and you can tell that everything she is doing is coming from the heart. I always say,”you can taste when food is made with love,” and this was no exception. Arriving to Nahoko’s class was simple. She provided detailed instructions and it was hard to miss her cute yellow house. She quickly brought us in and had tea ready for us at the table. Her utensils and dishes were beautiful. Before the cooking started she explained to us the importance of washing our hands. I cannot agree more with stressing this concept as my partner and I deal with patients and this is a crucial part of reducing infections. We first started on the gyoza. My partner was having a little bit of a struggle making his pleats but she gave him encouragement to go through it and would reexplain the steps to him. We ate the gyoza afterwards and had a nice chat. Now we were starting on the ramen. She explained the importance of the broth. She stressed how she liked to use natural ingredients from even the start of the class. Restaurants will use MSG or farm raised shrimps which she tries to stay away from because it will not only change the flavor, but will affect your heath in the long run. We made the noodles, tossed it into the boiling water, rinsed it off and then into the broth. She told us to eat the ramen in 8 minutes. My partner and I could have probably ate it in less. The most delicious refreshing ramen. Nahoko was an amazing teacher and I would recommend her class to anyone. It was a memorable part of our trip. She was considerate of our dietary needs. She spoke very well English. When I left I had such an urge to hug her before I left because this experience was like being at home in a different country, Nahoko’s home.
Response from Nahoko
Thank you very much for the longest and most meticulous revue for me! I’m so touched!
Ankit, United Arab Erimates★★★★★
The cooking experience was so much fun! Great session to learn about Japanese food and culture with you Nahako! I can't wait to make the gyoza and ramen at home! Thank you all the way from London!
Katie, United States of America★★★★★
We had a wonderful Christmas meal-making experience with Nahoko. She couldn't have been sweeter. Loved making the gyoza and ramen with her and our older teen kids. Was a great Tokyo activity and we all 5 highly recommend trying it! A hands on experience to remember:)
Magdalene , Singapore★★★★★
We were welcomed into Nahoko's beautiful home and had a good time making ramen and gyoza. Thank you Nahoko for making a beautiful cake to celebrate my son's 10th birthday!
I had an amazing day cooking at Nahoko home, it was ever so nice to also meet her husband. Both made me feel welcome. Thank you for teaching me how to cook Japanese cuisine the authentic Japanese way and also taking me for a tour to you local supermarket. Hope to catch up again
Kate , United Kingdom★★★★★
Nahoko was an excellent host; very knowledgeable (and patient!) when teaching us. Fantastic food experience - would fully recommend if travelling to Tokyo/the nearby area. Thank you Nahoko!
This cooking class was so much fun! Nahoko offered so many tips and tricks along the way and explained the steps thoroughly. Very lovely person and would go back!
Cooking with Nahoko was a great experience. I was alone and got lucky to experience a private class , so kind of her. The class felt relaxed , just like meeting with a friend , we had a really good time. I have learn more Japanese customs and language which is super interested. It was not just a cooking classe but also a cultural exchange. The food was very tasty and the ingredient of high quality. I can only recommand this cooking lesson. We did a vegetarian class and the options provided were so yummy. Good recipes to bring back home for friends / family.
Cooking with Nahoko was an excellent experience! She lives in a very nice house that was easily accessible by the public transport instructions she emailed us. Her house and kitchen are lovely and spacious, and the perfect place to learn how to cook Japanese cuisine! She was able to accommodate myself and a friend with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, and the food was absolutely delicious. Her English is excellent and it was great fun learning all about Nahoko! I would highly recommend this class to anyone visiting Tokyo. It was a unique experience and a definite highlight of our trip!
Brianna, United States of America★★★★★
Best cooking class in Tokyo! Everything tasted delicious.
Kaitlyn Rizio, Australia★★★★★
HIGHLIGHT OF OUR HOLIDAY!!! This was a fantastic cooking class just outside of Tokyo. We were very lucky to be the only couple booked for our night and boy, it did not disappoint. Everything is so hands on from the start to the end. And trust me you won’t leave hungry. Thank you Nahoko for a very memorable Japanese experience.
We just finished our cooking class and it was really amazing. If it was possible to give more then five stars I would. Nahoko is definitely the most lovely person we met during our journey in Japan. She really made it personal, took a lot of time for us and the food was probably the best we had in Japan. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and would recommend this to everyone.
Jerry Chang, United States of America★★★★★
Nahoko gave great gyoza and ramen lesson. She was very patient, kind, and helped us make delicious gyoza and ramen. I would absolutely recommend Nahoko's class to anyone looking to learn these dishes. I learned that she had a temari sushi class as well! We will definitely be attending that class during our next Tokyo visit!
Our cooking class with Nahoko was one of the best experiences we had in Tokyo. Nahoko was absolutely amazing, not only the class was very interesting and delicious, but Nahoko also helped us to understand the Japanese culture a little bit better by answering all of our questions. We loved every minute of our class and really enjoyed the food. We highly recommend booking her class!
Response from Nahoko
Thank you so much again the other day!I was very happy to cook with 4 of cute girls!!Hope the wrapper is safe and you to remake gyoza at home soon! Looking forward to seeing you again one day!
We had a great time learning to cook yummy gyoza and ramen with Nahoko! Both my husband and I are vegetarians and Nahoko adjusted her recipes for us which was great. The class was very hands on and the recipes were easy enough that you can make them at home. She is a friendly teacher and her newly renovated kitchen is lovely and welcoming. Nahoko’s house is in a nice quiet neighbourhood. It was a great experience meeting and learning to cook with Nahoko. どうもありがとうございました なほこさん！
Response from Nahoko
ケイティさん！先日はほんとうにありがとうございました。 I thought October is far away when we got to know each other in April or May? but time fly very fast! I’m also very glad both of you have been studying Japanese language! Keep going studying! Looking forward to seeing you one day soon. Ah I will send you the recipe please let me know your home address!!

Super recommended! Nahoko was very nice and professional. She explained everything we asked and did. Food was delicious!!
Makana Terry, Canada★★★★★
Nahoko and her cooking class was absolutely amazing. Without a doubt it will be the highlight of my three month stay in Tokyo. She allowed my friend and I into her beautiful home and we learned the steps to prepare a great meal, after finished cooking, she served us dinner. Lots of fun and delicious food.
Nahoko is amazing, she is super nice and fun to talk to, she was very attentive to our food restrictions and customized the recipes to fit our needs, she explained in detail our cooking process, and the food was great! We recommend Nahoko's cooking class for a cosy and authentic experience.
Cassandra, United States of America★★★★★

Galit Dar, Israel★★★★★
We enjoyed our cookink class. The food was very good and the host was friendly!
Our cooking experience with Nahoko was the best! Both Nahoko and her husband were extremely kind and we had so much fun we ended up spending the entire afternoon with them! Nahoko even showed us her favorite shops in the neighborhood, after the cooking class, and gave us many tips of places to visit in Tokyo. The cooking class blew all of our expectations away. We learned how to make the best gyozas and some delicious ramen. What was also great was how Nahoko gave us all recipes written down in a handout. I really recommend her class. It was one of the highlights of our Japan trip :)
Great experience! Nahoko is a very lovely host, we enjoyed our class very much!
We had an awesome day with Nahoko! She was very patient, nice and we had so much fun learning how to make Gyoza and Ramen from scratch. Highly recommended if you are looking to learn how to make authentic Japanese cuisine! Nahoko makes you feel at home immediately. 5 stars!
Gillian , Canada★★★★★
Nahoko was such a kind and informative host! Not only did she invite us into her home, but explained well each ingredient she was using, as well as alternative vegetarian options. The gyoza were incredible, as was the raman! Fantastic experience !
ANDY, United States of America★★★★★
Nahoko is a very gracious host. She responded to my messages in a timely manner and even provided me the most efficient train route from my hotel to her home. I had no problem navigating with her directions. I had a wonderful time learning how to make Japanese food. Nahoko answered all my questions and now I have a new skill to share with my friends and family. Nahoko also printed out all instruction for me to take home. My experience was more than learning to cook, but being able to interact with a Japanese friend and enjoy the cultural differences. I would highly recommend to spend your afternoon with Nahoko and cook some great food.
Please do yourself a favour and don't look past Nahoko! The food was delicious, and the experience was fantastic overall. We have used her recipes many times since being home :)
Response from Nahoko
Wao!Thank you so much.I’m so glad that I finally received your review!!
The evening with Nahoko and her husband was super fun! We had an amazing time cooking Gyozas and Ramen at their home. Especially the homemade noodles were delicious! It took us quite a while to get to their house but it was definitely worth it! :)
The day with Nahoko was just a pleasure! The food was really nice and Nahoko explained everything very well. The end result was really delicious and she and her husband even helped us planning our trip and other things we could do. Even grocery shopping is fun with Nahoko! Can definitely recommend.
John, United Kingdom★★★★★
Brilliant afternoon cooking gyoza and ramen with Nahoko. We booked very last minute at 9pm the night before and Nahoko was kind enough to move her schedule around to fit us in. The instructions were well explained and the food tasted delicious. Nahoko walked us back to the train station after the class and when we didn't have enough cash she generously gave us the extra money so we could buy the tickets. All in all a great, authentic experience and one of our highlights from Tokyo.
Scott and Jess, United States of America★★★★★
Our cooking class with Nahoko was a definite highlight of our trip! She was so kind and patient and gave us an authentic look into some traditional Japanese dishes. We were warmly welcomed into her home and she was happy to answer any questions we had. The food was FANTASTIC! It was so good that once we returned home, we hosted a mini cooking class with our family using her recipes and the tips she taught us! We would highly recommend this experience to anyone who enjoys cooking or at the very least enjoys meeting new people and trying new experiences. Nahoko deserves 5 stars! Thank you again! Jess & Scott United States of America - Minnesota
We spent a great time with Nahoko and her husband. The food was excellent, the cooking was fun. Her explanations were good and easy to follow, so we will surely enjoy our own home made Ramen soon.
Jordan, United States of America★★★★★
Cooking with Nahoko was so much fun! She was very easy to follow and we learned a lot.
We had the best time cooking with Nahoko! She was so friendly, outgoing and her gyozas and ramen is so good. Location and the atmosphere in a authentic Japanese house was perfect. We can’t wait to get back and try to make the recipes ourselves. BIGGEST recommendations from Denmark.
Thiago Santos, Brazil★★★★★
We had a great time with Nahoko, she is very thoughtful. We had a chance to learn how to cook (and eat) Gyoza and Ramen in a very authentic setting. Totally worth unique experience.
the class was so fun! we learned new things about japanese cooking style ans enjoyed the meal we cooked together. we recommand everyone who visits Tokyo to participate in Nahoko's amazing class!
We've enjoyed this class immensely. Nahoko is a friendly host, the food was delicious, and it was nice talking about the everyday life in Japan. Would totally recommend this cooking course.
Thank you so much Nahoko for this cooking class ! Gyozas and Ramen were excellent. You are a very good professor! Arigatogozaimasu ! ------------ Merci beaucoup Nahoko pour ce cours de cuisine ! Les Gyozas et le Ramen étaient excellents ! Vous êtes une bonne professeure ! Arigatogozaimasu ! Jeremy & Alison
We’ve had a nice experience with Nahoko. She is very excited with her cooking class and gives great explanation. Very nice experience, although a bit far away from Tokyo’s center and takes most of the day because of it
Great afternoon learning the secrets of gyoza and ramen soup from scratch. Taught in nahoko’s welcoming apartment. A true way to experience a new culture!
Alicia Rohe, Germany★★★★★
Our cooking class with Nahoko was one of the most valuable experience in Japan. Finally we met a local person, learned more about the japanese lifestyle and their culture. Even though we were late, the class took place and after it she brought us to a local super market to buy some ingredients we used for cooking. Nahoko is polite, funny and so welcoming that I can just highly recommend to take her class. You will learn to cook ramen in the traditional way with natural ingredients. The food tasted amazing and we enjoyed cooking, eating together and having conversations a lot. Thank you so much Nahoko for this amazing day and hope to see each other again one day!!
Shane, United States of America★★★★★
Nahoko is a wonderfully warm and genuine host. I felt welcomed into her home the moment I stepped in. And learning her personal recipes were a real treat. I never thought that I would have been able to make tasty, restaurant quality ramen with a homemade feel like I did when I was there. Nahoko can speak English and Japanese , which is a real help for tourists who want to jump in to an authentic Japanese home and learn as much as possible. Her instructions are easy to follow for a beginner , but not too basic for a more advanced student. Take her class, you’ll be surprised at what’s you can do.
Hilla , Israel★★★★★
Nahoko gives it all to this class, she's a fascinating individual, very friendly and caring and has great enthusiasm for this class. This experience became one of my top experiences in Japan, of a month of traveling. I hope I'll get the chance to host Nohoko in my kitchen in Israel one day.
We have a really good time,thank you so much!
