We provide you the following three different styles of Japanese food cooking experiences to choose from. Please read Type A, Type B, and Type C and select which interests you most.

Type C
Easy Japanese Home Cooked Meals at a Japanese Home with a local super market tour in the suburbs.

In this program, you experience a home visit and prepare a home-cooked meal in the suburbs of Tokyo.

The Japanese cooking teacher started teaching how to make Japanese meals at home because while she was in abroad, she noticed there were so many Japanese restaurants selling foods like sushi and tempura, but there were no restaurants serving Japanese home-style meals. So, she decided to introduce it at her own home!

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

Seven Benefits:

1. You can ask the teacher about Japanese food, culture and ingredients during the class as well as after the class.
