Did a cooking class with my boyfriend at Mari back in March. We absolutely loved it and Mari was an amazing teacher. Mari made us feel so welcome in her home and the whole experience felt so personal compared to doing this with a big group. It was so lovely being taught how to make traditional Japanese food and now... More

The group of 5 (2 Brits, 2 Aussies and 1 Belgian lady) met Mari at the subway station and were taken to her apartment. She offered us tea and explained about the ingredients that go into a typical Japanese meal. Each person was given one or more tasks to help prepare the meal. My task was cutting onions which I...

did a class with Mari on my last day in Japan. Fantastic end to the trip - the experience of cooking and eating in a local's kitchen, hearing about the different foods and how they are used and in the end, eating delicious food. Mari is extremely knowledgeable about Japanese food and provides detailed guidance and explanations on what she... More

Visited Japan with my wife and wanted to try a Japanese cooking class. Mari's class was very well reviewed and her website was easy to access and use for English speakers. I emailed her ahead of time and luckily she had an opening for us. The class itself was very informative and fun. There were 6 of us in the... More

Marry's cooking class was one of the best experiences we had in Japan, and allowed us to bring a small piece of Japan home. Mari is incredibly friendly and outgoing with grade A English and a great sense of humor. She is also a top notch chef, with years of experience, formal training in cooking around the world, and a...

I heard about this class online at TripAdvisor, and I'm really glad I did this class. Mari's apartment is located to Tsukiji Fish Market (which is also a must-do), so I visited the market in the morning, and had a sushi breakfast there. Afterwards, I walked to the station where we're supposed to meet (about 1 mile/1.6km away). There, I... More

My husband and I had a wonderful experience cooking with Mari in Tokyo. She is an absolutely delightful personality, her English is excellent, and she definitely knows her cooking - both Japanese and Western. Taking this class gave us insights not only into how to cook Japanese food but Japanese culture and daily life in Tokyo. First, we learned how... More

It was a very interesting experience and delightfull meal. We learned some basics we did not known before, not only about japanese cooking but also about japanaese culture. Mari is a very good communicator as she makes the class enjoyable for everyone. Located close to the fish market gave us the opportunity to visit it before the class.

Instructor, Mari-san has a very wide knowledge about Japanese cooking. She taught us various way of cooking even for one recipe. It is very helpful when we cook the recipe again at home. I really respect her kindness & passion about cooking!
