    What to Expect
    Meet Emika at her home for a regional culinary experience that will start with a freshly made cup of traditional matcha green tea prepared by Emika or her father. Born and raised in Kyoto, Emika is a wealth of knowledge with regards to all things related to her city. Feel free to ask her for her local recommendations! 
    A Kyoto native and an avid traveler, Emika has a deep passion for food. She especially enjoys exploring the local cuisine of the regions she travels to and is eager to provide travelers with regional Kyoto cuisine in her home. Emika learned about the art of matcha from her father, a master of Sado (matcha tea ceremony) and loves to teach guests how to prepare the perfect cup of matcha green tea the traditional way. Her father may even lead the matcha demonstration when he is home. 
    Emika specializes in sushi making that she learned from professionals in the past, and Obanzai cooking, a traditional style of Japanese cuisine native to Kyoto in which at least half of its ingredients must be produced or processed in Kyoto. Obanzai cooking heavily relies on seasonal vegetables and seafood. Emika's food therefore includes locally sourced ingredients.
    Don't miss out on this unqiue culinary experience with a passionate Kyoto local!
