  • Rice

    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.

  • Sake

    Sake

    Japanese popular alcoholic drink must be Sake, or called Nihonshu, made from fermented rice. The foundation of good sake is quality rice, clean water, koji mold and yeast. Premium sake differentiates itself in quality of ingredients and production process, so that flavors ranges light and crisp to richer, fruity notes.

  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

All cooking classes by Junko



Hello! My name is Junko. I'm a Japanese homemaker who has raised three children and now enjoys spending time with my grandchildren.
My love for traditional Japanese cuisine runs deep, as I have been accustomed to preparing these dishes since early on. I am committed to preparing high-quality, additive-free dishes with a focus on health-conscious cooking.
Born and raised in Tokyo, I've also had the enriching experience of living in places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and the United States for about five years in total. Along the way, I've picked up some English and enjoy using it whenever I can.
In addition to homemaking, my interests span a wide range. I'm an avid traveler who has explored many countries, finding joy in experiencing different cultures firsthand. When I'm not traveling, I indulge in hobbies such as swimming, reading, ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement), and playing the guitar.
I have a sociable and diplomatic personality, finding pleasure in engaging with people from diverse backgrounds. Sharing the richness of Japanese food culture is a passion of mine, and I look forward to connecting with you through this culinary journey!

Option:
✔︎Explore tourist spots near my home with my personalized advice. Borrow two bicycles for your convenience.
✔︎Japanese flower arrangement (Ikebana) experience.
✔︎Real kimono experience (for ladies' kimono only)
