Aya Yamada view classes

Aya-sensei, whose popular “Japanese Cooking How-to’s” column can be found on Facebook, is a freelance nutritionist working out of Katsushika-ku, Tokyo.

She specializes in old-fashioned Japanese home cooking: made with raw ingredients from scratch – the kind of cooking that’s been done in Japanese homes for hundreds of years, without the refined or packaged ingredients commonly found in modern Japanese kitchens and restaurants.

Learn how Japanese households have made their meals in harmony with the seasons since before the Meiji Restoration.

Also, enjoy the local foods and traditions of Katsushika-ku – an area steeped in history just across the Edo River from Old Tokyo – such as “Bon Odori” (盆踊り, Japanese dance festival) and “Matsuri Hayashi” (祭り囃子, traditional Japanese music festival).

See Aya-sensei’s specific classes for details.

Since Chika-sensei speaks almost no English, in her class it will be up to you speak Japanese!

Have a great – and educational time – taking a true look inside Japanese culture.
