What to Expect

Dining at a sushi restaurant or a tempura restaurant in Japan are all great, but, what if, what if you can get a chance to roll up your sleeves and to cook Japanese food by yourself.

That would be more fun and memorable!

How to make dashi stock is included in all menus.

After finishing cooking, let's have a eating time.

Casual Matcha experience can be included, if you like.

Very pleasant evening in Gion with Keiko

Thank you Keiko for making our visit to Kyoto so enjoyable. We booked an evening tour in Gion with Keiko and had a very wonderful time with her. She is an insightful and a delightful guide. Her itinerary was organized and she has some wonderful stories she shared. We had a fantastic dinner with her and learned so much about Japanese cuisine. Highly recommended.

Keiko U.

Hi, Alex-san and Girlie-san. Thank you so much for the kind review. I was happy that both of you liked Japanese Gyoza and Japanese SAKE, Junmaidaiginjoshu, as well as sashimi with some garnish. Hope you come back to Japan to enjoy another Kyoto! Please continue your lovely days. Thank you so much. Keiko

Fantastic city and fantastic guide

We had 2 full days and a cooking lesson with Keiko and she was fantastic. We were able to see and do so much during our time in Kyoto due to having Keiko design an itinerary that made the most of our time there. We had a group of 6 and I would thoroughly recommend spending more than 1 day with Keiko. The cooking experience was a lot of fun. We would do it all again and would not hesitate to ask Keiko to be our guide.

Hi, Scott and your beautiful happy family! Thank you for your warm comment and also for choosing me as your guide in Kyoto. I had great time, too. Please come back to experience another Kyoto as well as Nara and Osaka. It' d be my pleasure if you made sushi and other Japanese home-cooking back in your country with my recipe. Please keep having lovely days! Thanks, Keiko

Your very own Kyoto Tour!

This tour is the one and only for you. Kyoto was an ancient capital of Japan for over 1200 years. Embedded in centuries of history and culture, it offers too much to see in one visit. Here the ancient world is integrated with the modern. The phenomenal concentration of history and legend coexists with an equally phenomenal concentration of people busily going about their everyday life. Please tell me your interest, and I will make an itinerary exclusively for you!
