I was born in Osaka, grew up in a suburb of Nagoya. I have been interested in food ever since.

When I was a kid, my mother was not so good at cooking. When I was in highschool, I used to make my bento myself. I've been cooking everyday for almost 40 years. After graduating from high school, I studied abroad in a college in California. Then I moved to L.A. where I met my husband who was a chief cook of a restaurant in Little Tokyo. He is so picky about food because his mother was an excellent cook. Thanks to them, I have countless recipes now.

    An amazing experience!

    Both Akiko-san and Hisae-san were very welcoming. Hisae-san picked me up from the station and dropped me off afterward too.

    Hisae-san was pleased to share her love of kimono. She even showed me how to wear a Yukata properly. She was very knowledgable.
    I can say for certainty I made a new friend today.

    Thank you very much!

    My Husband and me had an enjoyable day in kimono wearing for the 1st time. Both Akiko and Saya had shared a lot of the kimono wearing and the culture with us..Very friendly ladies. Definitely a great experience.
