Type C
Easy Japanese HOME VISIT and COOK JAPANESE HOME MEALS with local super market tour in the suburb.

In this program, you experience HOME VISIT and COOK JAPANESE HOME MEALS in the suburb of Tokyo. Let me talk why the Japanese cooking teacher started to teach Japanese home meals. It is because when she was in abroad, she noticed there were so many Japanese restaurants of Sushi, Tempura, etc., but there were no restaurants serve Japanese home meals. So, she decided to introduce it at home.

She will take you to the local supermarket tour before cooking lesson. Whenever you find any interesting things there, you can ask her what it is. You will learn so many about Japanese foods and also ingredients.
