Initia Japanese Cooking Class is a great way to learn how to make traditional Japanese dishes in English. We are teaching Japanese cooking in Kyoto, near Kyoto station. We focus on what local Japanese people (including our family!) really cook and eat.

Since I love knowing different culture and people, I studied in a University in the U.S., but it wasn’t enough for me and I traveled to Africa and South America while studying abroad. When I was traveling, I had many opportunities to have meals with local people in their houses. One thing I noticed is that home-made food is quite different from food at restaurants such as the atmosphere and the preparation. Cooking the dish with local people, talking with them while eating, these are what make the time more valuable. Of course, I got to know many aspects of their life by talking. Exposing myself to the local life became one of my best memories in the trip. So now, I would like to share the experience, but this time, as a host.


We are mostly making 一汁三菜(Ichiju-sansai) menu, which means 1 soup and 3 dishes, so the menu has good nutrition balance.
You can check each day's menu by visiting our website. We have discounts on our website too.

Message me in advance if you have something you can't eat.


We are located near Kyoto station, 12 minutes walk-away.
