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.

    A unique and yummy experience!

    Keiko met us at the Kawasaki train station and instantly made us feel welcome in her home. Her friendly nature and love for food is evident and made it very easy to follow her instructions to make Udon and Kakiage. As former chefs and food enthusiasts, it was really surprising to find out that the theory behind Udon making is the complete opposite to what we are used to in western dough making. We especially loved getting to eat what we had made using the beautiful bowls Keiko had made herself.

    We're really glad we booked this experience and can't wait to make udon at home in Australia using the techniques we learnt from Keiko. Thank you so much!!

    Delicious food and interesting class

    Fantastic experience! Keiko is multi talented and speaks fluent English. She cooks, sews and does handcraft. Totally enjoy myself with Keiko. Will go back for more classes! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

    We had an a bsolute blast at Keiko's soba and udon class. I would absolutely recommend this class for those who are interested in Japanese food and culinary arts beyond sushi.

    She met us at the subway and escorted us a short distance to her home. The instruction was clear and Keiko was so friendly and warm.

    Soba requires precision and Keiko took us through the process step-by-step while offering great insights to the history of soba and Japanese food. She really knows her stuff!

    It was a truly unique and terrific experience that served as an excellent counterpoint to all the tourist stuff.

    5 out of 5. Would recommend to a friend. Do yourself a favor and take one of Keiko's classes!

    Thanks for teaching me how to make udon! Me and my friend really enjoyed it. Our udon tasted very nice and it was lovely to have a good chat with you and see Kawasaki. I would reccomended this activity to whoever loves to cook! As its simple to make!!

    Keiko was incredibly nice with a very friendly and bubbly personality. You can really tell she loves cooking and sharing her expertise and experience. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect, and Keiko made it very easy to understand (not physically easy! fold and kneading was a workout!). I am very glad I booked this activity. If you have an interest in Japanese cooking, you should definitely book an experience with Keiko!

    Keiko is an amazing teacher, and she is very in love with the gastronomy, so it makes so easy enjoy and learn. She picked me at the train station with a handmade ''welcome sign'' and gthen, we went to her house.

    I totally fell in love when I saw all the boats with food and beautiful dishes and chopsticks!

    She didn't just teach me how to cook, she gave me a lot of nutritional information and moreover, explanation about the ingredientes so it was easy for me to find something similar in Spain.

    If you have the change of meeting her, she won't disppoint yopu, highly recommended!

    Super fun and delicious

    We had a great time with Keiko-san and highly recommend her as both a teacher and a chef. She's a wealth of knowledge on many aspects of Japanese culture and a great entertainer.

    As a side note her English is great---again, highly recommended for any event/class/etc. in Tokyo area.
