Yakuzen is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition.

I would like to serve “Yakuzen” dishes, which you can enjoy seafood and mountain vegetables in season grown locally. “Yakuzen" is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition, and was originated more than 2000 years ago. Recently, Yakuzen is considered as a part of preventive medicine to treat pre-symptomatic disease. Based on the theory of Yin-Yang and the five elements, Yakuzen maintains the balance of physical body and mentality. I hope you enjoy cooking my original Yakuzen recipes, including Japanese seasonal ingredients.

If you have any question or dietary restriction, please contact me. I would be happy to customize the courses.

Experience the sophisticated Yakuzen courses and enjoy natural sourness, sweetness, bitterness, and saltiness derived from natural ingredients.

Hi, I’m Rie. I live in a small town one hour away from Nagoya city. My house is located close to the beach, 5 minutes by a car, and beautiful rice field. The area is famous for seafood and plenty of locally-grown organic vegetables.

I love eating and cooking, so I learned Yakuzen from a Chinese teacher and acquired the certificate of international health food master. Since then, I have been creating new recipes, so I would like to share these with you.
Well, everyone, please look at my face. My face is made of "medicine" used in medicine dishes. The skin is "rice", the hair is "kelp", the hair ornament is "Natsume", the eyebrows are "pine nuts", the eyes are "dried grapes", the nose is "peanut", the mouth is " "Walnut", earring is "Gomiko".
I have such an interesting face and I look forward to meeting you and cooking with you.

Thank you so much for hosting us! It has been a memorable experience for my friends and I. It was a great cultural learning experience for me to be able to visit a Japanese house and learn cooking from my host. I also learn more about Japanese culture and lifestyle through our communication with the host. Our host are so friendly and hospitable. We were able to learn Yakuzen cooking and enjoy our meal in a relaxing manner. Since the location of my host is quite near to the seaside, my host dropped us at the beach after the cooking session and we were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery at Mihama Onoura. Will definitely recommend my friends to give it a try!
