I love traveling! I have been to over 10 countries and used to live in Australia! Basically I travel around alone, because I want to talk with local people in order to learn their real culture.
I grew up in the country side of Kyoto surrounded by unique natural activities. I became more aware of how interesting Japanese culture is through my traveling experiences abroad.
Tokyo provides a diverse amount of modern cultural experiences, however, I want to give people an entirely Japanese experience: something local and less touristy, where you'll be able to make delicious food using traditional processes.

    Wonderful time

    I had a great time making mochi with Junya. He was super friendly and chatted up with me about a whole variety of things, ranging from anime to his time in Australia to the green tea he bought for us (which was exceptional, by the way). His place is also close to the Tokyo Skytree Tower for a nice view!

    The mochi making was a lot of fun! You got to see what materials were used, as well as partake in the actual pounding process yourself. It ended up being my lunch, and it was super filling and satisfying to eat all the mochi I helped create :).

    Definitely recommend this experience if you want to experience a bit of Japanese culture you wouldn't get elsewhere.
