Why Asakusa ?
Asakusa is one of the most traditional towns in Tokyo and hosts a number of the most popular sightseeing spots such as Kaminarimon gate and Sensoji temple.
Tokyo Sky Tree, Kappabashi kitchen street, Ameyoko, Ueno, Akihabara, Tokyo station, Tsukiji fish market, Ginza, Shinjuku and Shibuya are all within 30 minutes of Asakusa.
You are going to do Kaminarimon and Sensoji anyway so why not cooking class in the morning and exploration of the area in the afternoon ?
A few minutes walk from Asakusa station will bring you to
TOKYO KITCHEN where you can enjoy excellent views of Tokyo Sky Tree and a pleasant breeze from the Sumida river.
And about me...
Hello, my name is Yoshimi.
I was born and raised in a normal Japanese family. I started cooking when I was 12 to satisfy my own curiosity and also to help my parents. Ever since, my passion has been cooking. I have been cooking for nearly 30 years now and hope to continue cooking for many, many years to come.
Whenever I visit a foreign country, I always drop by local supermarkets or grocery stores to see the local ingredients and food culture. It's such a fun for me to find out what the local cook and eat in their daily life.
I love to cook, eat and above all, I enjoy sharing time with the people I dine with. I hope to share the joy of cooking (and eating !) with you too !
I am very much looking foward to welcoming you to TOKYO KITCHEN so we can have some fun and cook up a storm !
