This is the ideal pick for time-tight travelers wanting to discover lots of Tokyo’s highlights in a day. Avoid the potential confusion of Tokyo’s subway system, and travel comfortably in a private vehicle instead. Enjoy the flexibility of being able to pick a set itinerary, or customize your own. Potential attractions include Sensoji Temple, Shibuya Crossing, Tokyo Skytree building and much more.

Our family had a wonderful experience at Buddha Bellies cooking school.  Ayuko and her husband were kind, patient and very easy to work with. Instruction was comprehensive and easy to follow.  The food was delicious.  They were able to accommodate our four children (ages 8 - 13) and our vegetarian diet. We learned a bit about the culture and how to prepare simple meals at home. We hope to take another class again.

If you are looking for excellent food, superior service, and an authentic experience in Japan, you must take a cooking class with Buddha Bellies. Ayuko met the four members of our class at the train station. The directions were clear and she was easy to spot in her Buddha Bellies apron. She and her husband, Shugo, opened their beautiful home and kitchen to us. You are greeted with tea and a fetching apron. Ayuko gave us a brief history about the food and culture of Tokyo. And then, time to cook. I am a decent home cook with no experience in Japanese cuisine. Shugo had me preparing restaurant-quality nigiri by the end of our class. We raised our glasses of beer, home-made plum wine, and sake, and enjoyed a lovely lunch. Not only would I highly recommend this class, I would return for a different class. Thank you, Ayuko and Shugo.

Excellent, friendly & fun experience!! That’s basically the evening in a nutshell. Ayuko met me on time at the meeting point close to the cooking school and we chatted in English on the way to the premises. There’s a spacious area in the apartment to watch/prepare & cook. She makes everything look so easy and steps in to help whenever you need it. I did the okonomoyaki & gyoza course and WOW!! They were legitimately the best tasting ones I have ever had. You can never go back to frozen/mass produced gyozas ever again haha. The okonomoyaki looked and tasted Oishī (delicious) and with some final finishing touches, looked like it belonged on the cover of a magazine (if there wasn’t some amateur like me taking the photo that is). Highly recommend this course!!

Ayuko was very efficient and explained each step of the recipes with me, and answered all my questions. I received all the recipes by email the following day, to try at home. The class was one-on-one and I was lucky to have Ayuko to myself! Directions to arrive were very simple and Ayuko's husband was waiting at the station. They also gave me good advice on visits to do in Tokyo.

We had the best time doing this class! Ayuko is an experienced sushi chef who helped us make the most amazing sushi. We especially appreciated her time to explain Japanese knives and culture. If you’re looking to gain some great Japanese cooking skills, have fun, and eat some amazing restaurant quality food- this is the class for you!
