What to expect
This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Kanae will welcome you into her comfortable family home located in one of the most peaceful and luxurious residential areas of Sapporo. Sip on a welcome drink as you immerse yourself in local Hokkaido culture and get to know your host Kanae as she shares stories about herself, her family and living in Hokkaido. Join Kanae in her open kitchen to learn to prepare a traditional homemade Japanese meal. You can expect the cooking portion of your experience to last about 1-1 1/2 hours before you enjoy the meal you helped prepare together.

Great Cooking and Cultural Experience with Kanea
Oct 2019
Kanea was a excellent hostess. She took us on a tour of the Nijo Market and then back to home. There she shared recipes and cooked a wonderful lunch of Japanese favorites. While this transpired, we had great conversation about Japanese cultural, her family, and time while a student in the U.S. Awesome experience

Dinner with friends
Not a traditional cooking class where everyone is cooking. She explained the foods and what she was doing. We helped make a couple of sauces. It was more like hanging out in a kitchen talking about culture, family, and experiences.

Wonderful Experience at Japanese Cooking Class
Jun 2019 • Solo
Kanae spoke very good English and customised the cooking class for a newbie like me. Prior to the lesson she emailed me to ask if I have any favourite Japanese dishes that I would like to learn. I helped in cutting, washing, adding the condiments and had a hand at sushi making. We had a good lunch together with two types of sushi, chawan mushi, salad and miso soup. It was an eye opening and unique experience as I experienced the process of Japanese cooking even though I have very minimal culinary skills. There was good conversation as we chatted about life at Hokkaido. Also, meeting Kanae was easy as she met me at a subway station and drove me to her home. Highly recommended for visitors to Hokkaido.

Highlight of our family trip!
Jun 2019 • Family
Kanae was a wonderful tour guide, host, cook, and resource for my two teens and me. She was so welcoming and helpful, and my teens loved cooking with her (so much that I was largely relegated to taking photos). She contacted us in advance to ask about food preferences and allergies, and she took our feedback (about what to avoid) and came up with a fabulous meal plan that we can make again at home - and she even managed to select some of my kids' favorite ingredients without our having remembered to mention them. She then drove us to visit the nearby temple before dropping us at the nearby subway station to return to the center of town.

Highlight of my trip to Japan!
Jul 2018
I loved meeting Kanae, getting to see her home and learning how to make genuine Japanese dishes from a "master!" I am so happy that I had this marvelous experience! I also have a new friend in Kanae! She was delightful and is very talented! Top notch cooking lesson! More than five stars! I made her ideal choice dishes at home for my (American) family and they loved them!
