Ayuko-San was amazing. Highly recommended stop for any tourist. I learned a lot and loved the experience. It's small, quaint, and personal. Don't think twice about it!

“One of the best experiences in Tokyo...great for singles couples or the whole family”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

My husband, our cousin and I did the Buddha Bellies Cooking School including fish cutting last weekend and it was one of the most fun things we did in Tokyo. The instructor is amazing with great english. It is a great mix of instruction and fun and she is patient. Fish cutting is great as she teaches you the proper way how to fillet a fish in Tokyo that we later ate as Sashimi. Also, making your own sushi and then enjoying it is very rewarding. I would highly recommend it for families, singles, couples or as a business event for a small group.

It was a great experience for my wife and me to learn all those good japanese dishes in private class from Ayuko-san who received us with lots of kindness, patience and good humour. We are now ready to receive our friends with tasty japanse food at home in Switzerland. Thanks again, we love Japan!

“Fantastic sushi learning!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I took Ayuko's sushi class for the first time and found it very very satisfying.
Although I am a Japanese, I never had a chance to learn how to make sushi till I joined this cooking class.
It was very intimate atmosphere with international guests but her lecture was very professional and detailed.
After taking this class, I had a sushi party at home with recipe that I learned here and all of my friends were so happy with my sushi!!

“The class was an amazing experience.”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

The class was an amazing experience.
Ayuko is very knowledgeable.
I was surprised because after the demonstration, they prepared a variety of appetizers and Japanese wine that were simply delicious!
I highly recommend this class and will be back for more!
