Emi is passionate about cooking traditional Japanese home-style dishes.
After years of learning from three renowned chefs, she became a culinary expert who can prepare almost any authentic Japanese dish or Washoku.
She recently decided to run her own cooking class to share her passion for food and Tokyo life with fellow foodies.
A Tokyo native, Emi enjoys meeting travelers and learning about other cultures.
She adores food from every corner of the globe but is also passionate about Japanese cuisine and teas, in addition to cats, photography and hiking!
She has a deep interest in nutrition science and values using the freshest, top quality ingredients. Your healthy and well seasoned meal is guaranteed to be fresh.
She serves her meals on fine dining tableware, cutlery and utensils, so have your cameras ready for a fun photo journey of Japanese cuisine.
A group with more than 7 people needs to be booked hopefully three weeks before, at least one week before the experience

Our experience was a great success and I would rate it 5. Our cooking class took place in Shibuya in a street easy to access. Our menu consisted of spinach with sesame, rice, teriyaki chicken and miso soup. Although it all sound very simple there is an art to it and we both learned some useful tricks for future dishes. We had a great time chatting while preparing simple yummy food that we will definitely be able to make again at home. Our host was interesting and kind. We discussed her city as she is a Tokyo native. We shared food stories of different countries and had a great time. We thank her very much for her time and wish her all the best future guests.
