Hi, my name is Satoko and I like to show people the heart and beauty of Japanese culture. It's a pleasure knowing that I can help people enjoy Japan in a way that also introduces its history in a meaningful and hopefully unforgettable way. So please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions at all.

This Day was Amazing. I really enjoyed the Atmosphere.
My Friend and Me spent A Fantastic Day with Satoko, Her Mum and of course the really Wonderful Sensei.
We felt so comfortable in Sensei's House. We Even participated at a Tea Ceremony.
I am really Thankful for that Day and for the Fantastic japanese Food, we cooked together.
Now I am sure that my Sushi will taste delicious.
I really enjoyed learning to make sushi with Satoko! She has great culinary skills so it is fun to learn from here,
and the sushi at the end is delicious! She used very high quality ingredients,
so the end result was just as tasty as any sushi that I have had in a good restaurant!
Sushi roll is my favorite so I ate lots and lots!
I liked common sushi ingredient she made for us but she also arranged it and made her original one.
And I loved it!
She was really talented at cooking!
If you are into cooking or simply you like eating sushi, why don't you try making sushi with her?
You will enjoy it just like I did!
All ingredients were fresh and tasty. I never knew how dedicated one could prepare rice before boiling it for sushi, but be sure, it's a science of it's own. Preparing the nori and then rolling the rice is a bit tricky in the beginning. But after some trials you'll have figured out the technique. The best about rolls is that you can be absolutely flexible with the ingredients. Besides the classic ones (cucumber, salmon, avocado) we even had cheese, which tasted pretty good actually. It takes some time to prepare all the rolls but it's really rewarding to eat them afterwards. Satoko-san was a patient and skillful teacher and I had a great time learning the craft of sushi making from her.
It was an awesome experience. I made new friends in Tokyo. ,My instructor was very forthcoming and patient. I learnt more than i had thought for, have some awesome memories.. thank you voyagin
Satoko, the guide Voyagin put me in touch with was unable to do the time I requested but made the effort to ask Hisako to do this instead, even meeting me at the station to take me there personally. I was made very welcome at Hisako's apartment and she was a great teacher with a very well prepared lesson in making sushi. After the lesson we sat and ate together. Hisako is a very kind and interesting person to talk to about Japanese culture and I felt very priveleged to be welcomed into someone's home for such a personal insight.
