Hi I am Sumi, a certified cooking instructor. I have worked as an instructor for three years and have just started my own cooking class!
I enjoy eating as much as I love cooking. I also love to travel.
My favorite part of traveling is trying out different dishes of each country and teaching people who I meet about Japanese cuisine. I really like Japanese cuisine. That is why I started my own cooking class.

Fun way to spend the afternoon
Had a lot of fun and got hands on experience making wagashi.
I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Japan.
Sumiko was so patient with us. Even though we had a late start(we got lost) we still were able to learn all the process. We had a great time making wagashi. It was definitely a fun experience. Sumiko gave us free reign over our designs, first showing us how to make a traditional flower and then how to use the tools.
I am a first timer to make wagashi. Not that easy but it was fun with Sumiko-san. She made an example and let me do for the remaining. Requesting me to come up with 2 ideas of wagashi pattern. At the end, ended up with laughing because of that.
Thank you to Sumiko-san, I will practice it when I am back and if I have anything to ask I could drop her questions.
Fun, creative experience
The whole session was fun and Sumi (the host) was extra nice and accommodating. She also knew how to entertain her students... I'm excited to visit Japan again and attend another one of her classes! :) Thank Sumi! :)
Fun and informative!
I had a great experience learning from Sumi! She is incredibly sweet, welcoming, and helpful. I would definitely recommend attending her class while in Tokyo - it was really great to have someone explain the many different types of wagashi. She answered all of my many questions - and even gave me a recommendation for a great bakery in the city!
