In this Vlog, I will guide you to the Shibamata area. This area is famous for one of the Japanese movie called “Otoko wa tsurai yo”. This is a Japanese film series starring Kiyoshi Atsumi as “Tora-san”, a kind-hearted vagabond who is always unlucky in love. The series itself is often referred to as “Tora-san” by its fans.

Some of you might noticed but I hold Japanese cooking class in Tokyo. Many of my guests asked me about the leftover kelp after making Dashi soup stock/broth. I use leftover kelp and also bonito flakes to make other dishes. This time, I will show you one of the easy recipes that you can cook for your family. In this video, I will introduce how to make the Seasoned Kelp. My son (2 years old) will join this video with me. I am sure that just watching what he does while cooking is funny…

Strawberry Sponge Cake

Categorised in: | Link of this article

So many of my cooking class guests ask me what famous Japanese sweets are. There are so many Japanese sweets here in Japan, but I think Strawberry Sponge Cake (what we call “Short-cake”) is iconic one. Obviously, it is well influenced by western culture but the texture of sponge cake and the whip cream is SO JAPANESE! Some of you may agree with me. In this video, I will introduce how to make Strawberry Sponge Cake. I usually bake this cake on my family members’ birthdays. Please try it out!

Sake Navigator

Categorised in: | Link of this article

My husband works at the premium sake company but I didn’t know a lot about sake. (I even believed that hot sake is ALWAYS for bad and cheap sake!)
I’ve been felt that I’m missing something so I joined sake tasting session and sake seminar intensively in January. Now, I got the certificate of the Sake Navigator.
I think it’s very useful certificate for both my business and my private life as well! Yay!!!


For more about the tasting session and the sake seminar, please check my Instagram!

Seasonal Event : Setsubun

Categorised in: | Link of this article

On the 3rd of February, we have the day of “Setsubun” (seasonal division) in Japan.
Setsubun has been an important time-honored rite to welcome the New Year by banishing evils and keep the house from calamity.

Sushi-roll.jpg

Sushiroll_8.jpgOn the day, people threw beans to banish demons who cause various evil things and plagues. The beans used in “Mame-maki” (bean throwing) are parched and edible. It is believed that one can maintain good health throughout the year by eating the sam e number of thrown beans as one’s age. And they shout, in principle, “In with good fortune! Out with the demon!”
At the same time, we eat “Eho-maki”, sushi roll containing 7 ingredients associated with the Seven Deities of Good Fortune “Shichi-fukujin”, facing the direction of Eho that is most lucky for the year as determined by the Way of Yin and Yang. (I use more than 7 ingredients! :-D)
It is also customary to eat Eho-maki while making a wish in the mind with the eyes closed and without uttering a single word. You will eat the whole roll at a stroke in order not to lose ties. In 2018, the direction of Eho is south-southeast!
