Dear Cooking Lovers,
Thank you for visiting this site!
I am happy to know that you are interested in learning Japanese home cooking.
Have you ever thought that you would like to cook Japanese home meals at home ?
(You can do it with YUCa! )
You can experience HOME VISIT and COOK Japanese Home Meals here in Tokyo, JAPAN!
I started my cooking class to introduce Easy, Healthy and Delicious Japanese Home Meals.
When I was living in abroad, I found many Japanese restaurants didn’t serve the Japanese home meals that we eat here in Japan.
That’s how YJC was established!
YJC introduces Easy, Healthy and Delicious Japanese home meals that you can cook at your home many times.
We invite all of you to our private kitchen located in the center of Tokyo. Contact us anytime you want to learn or whenever you are hungry. It’s also easy access to major sightseeing spots. After the class, it’s time to discover what you learned in the class and enjoy more TOKYO & JAPAN!
Come and join us! You’ll definitely feel the Japanese lifestyle!
Looking forward to meeting many of you!!
Eat well & Have a lovely day!
