How to book your lesson

Step 1:

The gray dates on the booking calendar are available to book. Decide which is your preferred date and time to have a cooking lesson or a kimono experience.
Please if possible give me three different options to make it easier to fit you in.

Step 2:

Decide which kind of Japanese cooking you would like to practice.
Choose one of the food options from the list, and decide if you would like to add sake/shochu-tasting as well.

If you choose a kimono festival experience, make sure you check the dates of the festivals here.

Step 3:

Use the online form for cooking and sake/shochu-tasting or the online form for kimono experience to send me your request.

If you would like to take both a cooking lesson and a kimono experience, please send both forms.

I will send you an email confirming the date and time of our lesson.
I will do my best to accommodate your first preference.

Step 4:

After we have decided the date and time of our lesson, I will send you a bill by e-mail via PayPal.
You can make the payment by credit card if you don’t have a PayPal account.

 Step 5:

I will send you a message confirming that I have received payment, and then we are ready to go.

Step 6:

On the day of the lesson, please take the train to Ninomiya station on the JR Tokaido line. Access details are here.
I will meet you there in my car and drive you to the house — it is just a 5-minute drive — where we will have the lesson, followed by the meal!
After the meal, I will drive you back to the station.
