I am a former bank employee and now manages a project / design company. Since last year, I have worked on JAPAN FOOD TOWN opening business support project in China and acquired knowledge of Japanese restaurant management as well as Japanese food. Japanese food boom is causing over the world, Japanese restaurants are opening one after another, but you cannot enjoy home Japanese cooking without visiting local home. I would like to provide the experience of REAL JAPAN FOOD at our house while making full use of the network of the restaurant industry.

Where you'll be

We invite you to our home. It takes around 7 minutes by walk from JR Asakusabashi Station. There are so many restaurants in Tokyo, but it is rare opportunity for tourists to learn how to make OBENTO. Why don't you take part in this program??

Because of his wife being sick we went to a Very local traditional restaurant then a cafe which featured a traditional Japanese lunch. It was a place that I never would have even given a second thought about and it was a perfect experience which one would hope for in Japan. Overall very happy with it and would recommend to anyone! Hideki is great guy and very knowledgeable!
