  • Message from YOROKOBI kitchen

    Hi! I’m Nahoko Ouchi, a cooking instructor here and recipe developer. Thank you for visiting YOROKOBI kitchen's website. Cooking has been my big passion since I was little. Also, I always love to share Japanese culture with people from other countries. Through my whole cultural experiences such as living in the U.S, joining a cultural exchange project, working in Australia, becoming a host family for an exchange student in my home in Tokyo, and traveling abroad made me decide to found a Japanese cooking class for international visitors from all over the world.


    In class, you will make delicious authentic Japanese dishes using Japanese unique ingredients and cookware.


    I would like you enjoy healthy food here, so I pick only fresh ingredients and seasonings containing no food additives and preservatives.


    All recipes are developed reproducible. Printed recipes are also provided. You will be able to make what you learn at the class again easily at home.


    To meet your dietary needs, always happy to give you a class flexibly arranged following your requests. Please feel free to share your dietary restrictions, food allergies or religious restrictions with us.


    YOROKOBI is Japanese word for happiness. YOROKOBI kitchen is always here to offer you some happy moments through Japanese cooking!
