There is a local park called “Arakawa-yuen” near my house. After the class, I sometimes go there with my son and we enjoy watching scenery of Tokyo from their ferris wheel. This is one of our favorite activity!
In April, you can also enjoy seeing full-bloomed sakura cherry blossoms all around the park. This year, we visited this park almost everyday because they bloom for only a week! How precious they are!!
Do you know which noodle we use for Ramen? Yes, it’s egg noodles! In Japan, we usually buy egg noodles from supermarket but it would be nice to make noodles from scratch by yourself even with using machine.

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. For more about this movie, please check here!
The other day, talented and influential journalist Piti came to my cooking class and we cooked home-style vegetarian ramen together. Piti has her own website “Piti no japao“. We chatted and laughed a lot while filming the video. As she works with famous travel site “Japan travel“, she introduces this video on their site as well. I hope you enjoy the video!!
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.

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!
