Yurico is a fantastic chef and a wonderful teacher. She was extremely accommodating and even opened up on a day that she wasn’t available for us.
We learnt how to make Kitsune Udon from scratch , egg plant and fresh fluffy tomago!

She made learning everything so easy and fun not to mention absolutely delicious!!

Her home was lovely and warm! We were greeted with tea and were made to feel extremely comfortable right away. It was a much nicer experience than going to a commercial / corporate school.

Yurico English is very good and we highly recommend her classes to anyone wishing to learn Japanese cooking. Thank you so much for this fantastic unforgettable experience. 5 star rating!!

I had an amazing day learning how to cook Okomomiyaki. Yurico did an amazing job teaching my husband and me cooking techniques and how to make different flavorful dishes. I recommend to check this opportunity/class out if you ever come to Tokyo. I also recommend to take the opportunity to do the calligraphy course, I found it fun to use the ink brush and learn about different brush strokes.

I went with my two daughters for a cooking class with Yurico.

We had a really great time and absolutely loved it.

Yurico is friendly and warm, organised, efficient and a pleasure to be around. Her class was informative and fun. And the end result was delicious.

It was very interesting to go to a residential district, visit a local's house and talk about life in Tokyo (eg. we learned that the reason there is no litter in Tokyo is because they got rid of all the bins - a deliberate policy that has worked). There was no awkwardness about being in a stranger's private house: Yurico has got it all worked-out and we all felt very welcome and comfortable.

All the arrangements (booking, payment, getting there/back) were extremely easy and very effectively managed by Yurico, who speaks and writes English fluently. It was only a 15min train ride from where we were staying, which was central.

Yurico’s class was phenomenal, she was very patient and supportive with every cooking step. She’s also a very talented teacher and cook! Everything was fully explained, she would explain the process, show us and then allow us to help prepare each dish. We even learned about the science of making sushi, miso soup and green beans with ground sesame seeds. She also gave us many recommendations on where to eat and visit (gave us a map and explained the best restaurants to visit). This is the best cooking class I’ve ever taken and I highly recommend taking her class while visiting Tokyo!

Yurico was very friendly and knowledgeable in the matter. The meal we prepared was delicious and looked very pretty as well. She gave loads of information and the recipes to take home.
We went at the beginning of our trip in Japan, so she answer many questions we had.
The location is also close to a beautiful park and wel connected by metro.

My wife and I attended Yurico’s cooking class and were extremely impressed by her hospitality as well as her knowledge of food science and Japanese cooking techniques. Yurico taught us how to make okonomiyki, green beans with a sweet sesame sauce, grilled eggplant, and miso soup. All of these foods were excellent and although I’m not a great cook, I feel that I can recreate this meal once I get back home. Yurico does a great job explaining the smallest details and the whys behind particular cooking methods. I would highly recommend this class for anyone interested in Japanese culture and cuisine.

My family and I contacted Yuriko two days prior to our cooking class. She responded in a very timely manner (in English) and was able to answer all of our questions regarding payment and directions to her house. After departing the train station, we were able to easily find her house with the directions she provided. We were greeted with a warm welcome and instantly felt at home--just her house was much cleaner ; ). Although we signed up for the tonkatsu cooking class, we also learned how to make miso soup from scratch, green beans in sesame dressing, cabbage salad, and grilled eggplant. Everything was oishi (delicious)! Not only did Yurico teach us how to cook, but she also taught us about the science behind the food, measurements, and temperature used for cooking. In addition, she was able to share where she bought her awesome kitchen gadgets (we went to Tokyu Hands and Muji as soon as we left her house), as well as the recipes we used during the class.
You definitely do NOT need to cook on a regular basis in order to take this class. Yurico makes it easy to follow and fun for everyone =). I'd highly recommend taking her class if you are ever in Tokyo. It was a great way to end our trip in Japan. We can't wait to try to replicate these recipes back home.
Mahalo Yurico!!

We, 3 friends, took an okonomiyaki cooking class with Yurico.
Yurico was very friendly, took an interest in all of us and gave us very detailed explanations of the entire cooking process. We did learn a lot and the food was delicious.
Meeting Yurico and cooking with her in her beautiful home were a wonderful experience.
I can only recomend it!

To cook in Yuricos nice home was a great experience. We made delicious Kinetsu Udon noodles with beans and eggplants. Yurico is a very charming and open minded person, beside to lern cook in japanese style you also can learn something about the japanese culture.
This is probably the best choice for cooking class in Tokyo.

We arrived to Japan on a Friday evening, got settled, grabbed dinner, and got a good night's sleep after travelling from Los Angeles. Our appointment with Yurico was Saturday at 11 am. This gave us a nice amount of time to get our Suica card (for non-JR train travel) and to plan out our subway/walk directions to Yurico's house. Yurico's e-mail responses were prompt, clear, and full of great info. Once you actually book and pay you'll receive all the information you'll need for getting to her house.

We had zero problems finding her house. Yurico had slippers ready for us in her foyer and we immediately went upstairs to her kitchen. Yurico keeps her house and kitchen area extremely clean which was an awesome plus! She seated us at her dining table and poured us some wonderful cold green tea as it was summer in Japan. She proceeded to go through the day's itinerary with us, great information that made us feel at home immediately. As you are being invited into her house, I would suggest bringing an Omiyage that is small but personal from your hometown.

Our family of three decided to do the Udon recipe. Yurico suggested that we do the cold version as it is summer and that was an excellent call! Making the noodles from scratch was quite a bit of work but really fun! The noodles we made set the precedent for the rest of the noodles we would be eating on our two-week trek through Japan. It's amazing how good these udon noodles turned out with really basic ingredients. Freshness really makes a difference here.

During our emails, Yurico suggested the sides we would be making with our meal. One of them ended up being tamagoyaki. This is the fluffy Japanese style egg omelette you may have had at a sushi restaurant. I've always been curious on the preparation of this dish and it was awesome to be able to learn how to make it. Later on our trip, we actually visited the Kappabashi area in Tokyo (kitchen supply street) and picked up a tamagoyaki pan to take home.

The reasons I think this was a fantastic way to start our Japanese adventure was that we got to hear a local perspective on things to do, get wonderful local tips, learning that cold Udon soup was so incredibly refreshing when dealing with the heat and humidity of Japan in the summer, and we got to get oriented with the subway system which we would continue to use throughout our vacation.

Yurico's English is excellent and she went deep into the techniques and ingredients if that is something you are interested in learning about. This really needs to be an experience you arrange during your vacation to Japan.
