    What to Expect
    Yoshiko worked as tour guide for many years before she started teaching Japanese cooking at home. Proud of the cooking techniques she learned from her mother, a wonderful home cook, Yoshiko enjoys sharing her mother's recipes and cooking skills with others. She also enjoys creating and experimenting with new menus, and values using fresh and natural ingredients in the healthy Japanese food she prepares. 

    Yoshiko lives in Takarazuka, a town located a quick 20 minutes by train from central Osaka, known for both its hot springs and its all-female Takarazuka Revue, a musical theater-troupe.

    Join her for a culinary experience you'll remember long after your trip is over!

    We very much enjoyed the cooking class with Yoshiko. Not only was the class fun, interactive and varied but the food was really delicious. We also enjoyed the conversation with Yoshiko and learnt a lot about Japan, her family and culture. Highly recommended!
