Overview

Are you interested in cooking Japanese-style dishes? With ingredients of the four seasons, you can learn how to produce a healthy menu using vegetables as a basis. You can learn Japanese-style representative home cooking from the basics. I love cooking and I’d like to teach basic Japanese home-style cooking in English to foreigners at my place.

Mari was so welcoming and friendly. Her instructions were easy to follow and the meal looked and tasted so good. Her place was easy to find also. I'll definitely be making some of the food at home since she made it look so easy.
