Dear Suzanna, Thank you for sending me a great review about my Flower Arranging class. I'm so glad to know you enjoyed it, especially your husband did. I hope you'll practice the flower arrangement in your home as much as you can and learn more about Japanese culture. Thank you so much. Masako
I had a great day with Masako, learning the basic of flower arrangement Japanese style. She welcome me in her house where we ate delicious Japanese sweets from her local confectionary shop. It was a really nice touch. I will try to put her learning in practice when I go back home. Masako is warm and friendly, and I truly had an enjoyable time. Thanks so much!
Dear Nathalie, Thank you for your fabulous review about my flower arrangement program. I'm so happy to know that you had an enjoyable time then. And more I could easily remind you by a picture with your flower arrangement. I appreciate it very much. I hope you'd like arranging flowers in Japanese styles. Thanks, again, Masako
My friend and I received an excellent introduction to Ikebana. Masako made us feel very wellcome in her nice house, her instructions were clear and we communicated well. All in all a very pleasant encounter with Japanese culture.
My dear Monique V. Thank you for giving me a good comment. I was happy that I could teach ladies from Germany how to make flowers and what Japanese culture is. I hope you'll make flower arrangement beautifully by yourself in your country and I am expecting you that you will email me about the result of flower arrangement by your own. See you around, Masako
My mom, daughter, and I had a great time making sushi with Masako. Masako was very patient with us and provided helpful instructions and tips for making delicious sushi. I was impressed by her ability to deal with my 5-year-old daughter who was doing laps around the kitchen table for part of the class. This was also our only chance to go inside a house in Japan, so it was a unique opportunity for us to see and spend some time in a Japanese house. And after we learned to make three different styles of sushi, we got to eat a tasty sushi lunch! I would definitely recommend this experience for anyone who likes sushi. Thanks, Masako!
