・Steamed Fish: White fish steamed in a traditional bamboo basket to its savory best
・Kenchin-jiru with Summer Vegetables: Popular, traditional soup made with simmered kabocha (Japanese pumpkin), eggplant, and other vegetables, tofu, and a fish sausage called chikuwa. This is an authentic Japanese dish that we would love to introduce you to!

Participants with food allergies are asked to provide information on their specific allergies well ahead of time, so that problematic foods can be avoided when ingredients are purchased.


Located on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line, with easy access from central Tokyo, Ayase is a residential area with shopping and restaurant options that draw customers from surrounding areas. After a meal with us you could stroll around Higashi Ayase Park! Just 1 minute walk from Ayase Station, this park has a stream running along the west side of the park. It is filled with a variety of plants in the Japanese-style garden!

The hosts are Tomoko Arai and Kaoru Shibata. Tomoko took an interest in food at an early age, but

Kaoru and Tomoko were wonderful hostesses and teachers! They were warm and welcoming, giving us plenty of opportunities to participate in the cooking. The food was tasty and their recipes were easy to follow. It was a great experience and I would recommend them to my friends and family who might visit Tokyo!
