In my vlogs, I will guide you secret places in Tokyo! This time, I will introduce my family time on weekend. Arakawa area (where YUCa’s Japanese Cooking class is located) has been known as one of the oldest town in Tokyo. However, this area started renovating and changing year by year and chosen one of the best area for educating children these days. Tokyo’s last streetcar called “Sakura tram” runs the area and it attracts many train lovers (including my son)! If you like unique trains and streetcars, please check the video and plan your itinerary before coming to Tokyo! Enjoy the video! YUCa
In my vlog, I will guide you secret places in Tokyo! This time, I will introduce the fabric town in Nippori. Nippori is best-known for its proximity to the Yanaka Ginza shopping district, which retains something of the Shitamachi (literally “low town”) charm of Tokyo’s less metropolitan past. (I have filmed three vlogs already!) However, on the opposite side of Nippori Station is another of Tokyo’s shopping paradises: Nippori Fabric Town. About 2 minutes’ walk from the Nippori station, you’ll arrive in the land that fabric dreams were hemmed, hand stitched, pressed and made of. For sewing lovers, this vlog is for YOU! Please check the video and plan your itinerary before coming to Tokyo! After visiting the fabric town, I’ll introduce my favorite sweets shop in this area.
In this vlog, I will introduce about the walking scene from Asakusa to Tokyo skytree. It was so comfortable to walk from that area. On the way, I happened to meet very unique vending machine that I was looking for long time. (So HAPPY!) Can you guess what it is? Enjoy the video!
In this vlog, I will introduce about the most touristy place Asakusa and the street foods you can taste there. Asakusa is very popular and crowded area among tourists since there is the oldest temple in Tokyo etc. During the Asakusa visit, I visited the secret green tea shop and tasted the strongest matcha ice cream in the world!!! If you are interested in Matcha, please also check the last part of this video. When you are in Tokyo or planning to come to Tokyo, don’t miss this place and traditional foods there. Enjoy the video!

In this vlog, I will introduce seasonal drink that I found at the Starbucks and then one of the famous Japanese garden in Tokyo. This place is called “Hamarikyu gardens”. If you are in Tokyo or planning to come to Tokyo, please visit this garden and have a relaxing time with matcha tea. Enjoy the video! YUCa
Happy New Year of 2020! In this vlog, I will show you how my family spend on new year’s day and also talk about my plan for 2020!
How was the year of 2019 for you? So many things happened for both business and private life. TOP1 Gave birth for second child. TOP2 Got the honor of the BEST cooking class in Japan by TripAdvisor AGAIN ! TOP3 Published the cookbook (https://yjc.tokyo/store/)
My daughter became 2 months old and eats well, sleeps well and moves so well! I woke up several times at night for nursing her. But thanks to my family’s support, I could restart my class so quickly. Special thanks to my husband!
I hope to teach Japanese cooking for many more guests from abroad and film recipe videos to pursue my mission! Thank you for your strong support, everyone! Have a peaceful, warm and yummy(?!) new year of 2020!
After the Christmas day, it’s time to prepare for New Year’s! In this vlog, I will introduce one of the biggest outdoor market called “Ameyoko” in Ueno area. I was so amazed to see that Ameyoko is getting so international food town. You will see Korean food, Taiwanese food, Chinese foood and Thai food etc. So, every time I go there, I feel like I am traveling many countries (especially Asian countries) at the same time! Amazing, isn’t it? If you are in Tokyo or planning to come to Tokyo, please visit and enjoy the foods and shopping there! At the end of the video, I will guide you to our family’s favorite train themed restaurant!!! Enjoy the video! YUCa
In this vlog, I will introduce seasonal snacks that I found at convini (convenience stores). Convini is one of the interesting places where you can find new products and foods. I don’t go to convini often but I found it might be fun just to go there and pick some limited sweets and snacks of the season. Hopefully, I would be able to film this series every season. (Wish me luck! 🙂 What was your favorite snacks and sweets? Please let me know!! Enjoy the video! YUCa
In this vlog, I will introduce Christmas market in Tokyo. My family and I visited Roppongi area, which is famous for night life (clubs, pubs etc), international hotels and Embassies. In the area, there is a big building that accommodates shops, condominiums and offices called the Roppongi Hills. The 13th Roppongi Hills Christmas market is held there until the 25th of December. If you are in Tokyo or coming to Tokyo until then, please visit there to feel Japanese-style (maybe?!) Christmas market in Tokyo. Have a great weekend!
In this vlog, I will introduce Yanaka ginza. This is the 3rd time to feature this area. (I mistyped in the cover photo. Sorry!) Yanaka area is close to my place and one of my favorite town in Tokyo. This time, I’ll guide you another eating places that I recommend. 🙂 Hope you like them ALL!
