Experience Details
If ramen, gyoza, and a nature walk through green gardens in Tokyo is your idea of heaven on earth, then this experience is for you! Begin with a scenic walk through a green area in Setagaya, Tokyo, then venture on to Tomokita-san’s home cooking studio. Here, you’ll unleash your inner chef with a ramen and gyoza cooking lesson. Tomokita-san, a certified cooking instructor, draws from a decade in Thailand and five years in Mexico, infusing her culinary expertise with diverse cultural influences. She pioneered her first cooking class in Mexico, offering instruction in Japanese, Thai, Chinese, and Korean cuisines to international expats, showcasing a remarkable 15-year expatriate journey. Nature walk: You'll meet your host at Todoroki Station. From there, you'll embark on a tranquil journey into a beautiful green area. Tomikita-san used to take guests to the Todoroki Valley, a verdant oasis that boasts lush foliage, majestic bamboo groves, hidden shrines, and meandering riverbanks. Since the valley is temporarily closed, she now opts for another nature walk through beautiful Japanese gardens in the area Ramen and gyoza cooking class: As you reach the end of your outdoor adventure, you’ll make your way to Tomokita-san’s home cooking studio. Whether you’re just friends or in a serious relationship with your kitchen, you can attend and enjoy this cooking class; Tomokita-san has created original recipes that are easy to follow and replicate at home. You’ll make authentic Japanese ramen and gyoza from scratch–from prep and mix to cook and assemble. Once you’ve finished making your tasty duo of dishes, sit back, relax, and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Along with your handmade ramen and gyoza, Tomokita-san has prepared two seasonal veg appetizers using homegrown ingredients! And what’s a meal without dessert? There’s a variety of sweet choices on offer, including matcha jelly with matcha ice cream and matcha cake. Then, wash it down with homemade umeshu (plum wine).
