What to expect
Originally from Kamakura, Kanae and her husband and two daughters have lived in Sapporo for over a decade. Influenced as a child by her mother who was a great cook, Kanae has always loved food and cooking. Having lived in Hokkaido that boasts the best produce in Japan, Kanae appreciates and enjoys cooking with locally sourced fresh, native vegetables, fish, meat and seasonings.  A US college graduate, Kanae is a fun host who loves to share stories about how locals live and eat. She is eager to accommodate your request for menus so feel free to let her know when you make a booking request. Also she is happy to introduce to travelers Hokkaido dishes such as soup curry, chan chan yaki and kaisen-don (donburi of fresh seafood) instead of typical homestyle menus, if you are interested in any of those.  Please note: Kanae's car can fit up to 5 people including the driver (max 4 guests), so if you are a group of 5 or more you will need to use a taxi and have it follow Kanae's car to her home, after meeting her at the station.   A little tip: If you enjoy hiking, Kanae's home is located right below the popular Moiwa mountain, a great hike where you can also explore the picturesque Fushimi-inari shrine!

Great Company and Amazing Food!
Nov 2019 • Couples
Kanae was a terrific host and we felt instantly welcomed into her home. The day started with a fun and informative trip through several local seafood and produce markets to see where all the ingredients came from. After, we traveled to her home and spent the morning leisurely cooking and getting to know one another. The food and conversation was excellent and was definitely the highlight of our trip to Sapporo. We highly recommend and would visit again!
