As a culinary specialist and as a nutritionist I cook at home and host “Tukurukoto wo Tanoshimu” (Having fun making) class dressmaking and kimono-making. I’ve gone to many places as well as a “cook who makes business trips”. While being a home tutor for high schoolers for 11 years, I also went to Korea to study their food. After that, I started work at a kitchen at a hospital attached to Tokyo Medical and Dental University that makes over 600 meals a day. After leaving that post, I have done jobs such as catering, Japanese cooking lessons for foreigners in Japan, and work as a private cook.

I booked the "Japanese Meal at Home" experience with Keiko, which is like a mini homestay over lunch. I had the best time, the meal and chat with Keiko in her apartment offered a glimpse of everyday life in Japan, which is exactly what I was hoping for. Keiko was so lovely and funny and she was more than happy to answer any questions about Japan. She even helped me choose a Rabbit Cafe to go to, as the websites were all in Japanese. The food was delicious and was the best meal I've had so far. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn more about the Japanese way of life, cooking, or even if you are just after a great meal!
Delicious, Fun, and more!
All I can say is you absolutely have to try this! If you are a foodie and love Japanese cuisine, why not try and make it yourself with a lovely, sweet and amazing cook like Keiko-San. We made the always delicious Okonomiyaki and Keiko made sure we had more than enough to eat and even provided a delicious dessert of local strawberries. She is so knowledgable about food and Japanese culture and has become a dear friend of ours that we hope to visit again soon. Visiting Keiko was one of the highlights to our trip.
