Cooking class for Tourists

Let's learn how to cook "WASHOKU" together!!

Being a Japanese cuisine teacher for more than 6 years,
I was very pleased by the news that WASHOKU was added to UNESCO intangible cultural heritage in Dec 2013.

WASHOKU is a social practice based on an essential spirit of the Japanese, “respect for nature”.
Ingredients used in WASHOKU are diverse, fresh and available in four distinct seasons, and require minimum cooking to enjoy their natural tastes.

UMAMI which is essential to Japanese cuisine, draws out the flavor of ingredients and provides an excellent seasoning even in foods with low fat content.

The changing of seasons can be tasted by its cooking process, and the beauty of nature is emphasized in the presentation of WASHOKU. Plates are decorated with leaves, flowers and bamboo, and natural motifs are represented in decorative cut. Cutting techniques in Japanese cuisine is important to get the right taste and texture, such as Sashimi.

Thanks to UNESCO intangible cultural heritage registration, and holding for Olympic Paralympic Games 2020 in Tokyo,We feel that it will pave the way for Washoku to be known all around the world. We would like to take this opportunity to enhance our activities to protect the Japanese cuisine culture, and its appeal to the world.

Please come and join us as we discover the world of Japanese cuisine.
Cooking lessons are programmed to ensure you experience and enjoy Japanese seasonality.
It will be a great opportunity for us too, to learn about your home-cooked food and cooking culture.
We are looking forward to welcoming you in our cooking studio!
