Join Tomokita, a certified Japanese cooking instructor, for a scenic nature walk through Todoroki Valley (the only valley of its kind in Tokyo’s 23 wards). Following this, walk to her home cooking studio for a maki sushi cooking class! Tomokita, a certified cooking instructor, blends her rich international living experience, a decade in Thailand, and five years in Mexico, to create a diverse culinary journey. Her pioneering spirit led to her first cooking class in Mexico, offering instructions in Japanese, Thai, Chinese, and Korean cuisines, catering to the global palate. With 15 years of expatriate life, Tomokita recognizes cooking as a universal intercultural language. Nature walk through Todokori Valley: Following your rendezvous with the host at Todoroki Station, you'll embark on a tranquil nature walk to Todoroki Valley. This verdant oasis boasts lush greenery, towering bamboo groves, secluded shrines, and a meandering river. Todoroki Valley remains a well-kept secret among tourists, making it a hidden treasure cherished by nature enthusiasts in Tokyo. Maki sushi cooking class: Maki (rolled) sushi consists of seasoned rice and various fresh ingredients rolled within nori seaweed. These delectable sushi rolls are typically filled with fish and vegetables, however, they’re easily customized to suit a range of palates. After a class introduction, it’s time to activate chef mode to make your maki sushi rolls! Enjoy the fruits of your labor once you’ve mastered your maki sushi. Along with your handmade maki sushi, Tomokita has prepared two seasonal vegetable appetizers using homegrown ingredients! What about dessert? Well, there’s a variety of sweet choices on offer, including matcha jelly, matcha ice cream, and matcha cake. Wash it all down with homemade umeshu (plum wine).
