  • 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 experiences of living in the U.S. to join a cultural exchange project, living and working in Australia, becoming a host family to host a foreign exchange student in Tokyo, and traveling abroad, I realized how fun and important knowing each other's cultures is. That 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, cooking utensils and cookwares.

     

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

     

    To help you to make what you learn in the class again easily, all recipes are developed reproducible. Printed recipes are also provided.

     

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

     

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