Kaiseki Cooking Class with a Chef in Tokyo - Day Trip
OFFER ID 1305767
Kiwa grew up in the Kochi prefecture on Shikoku island in southeastern Japan, known for its unique seasonal vegetables and ingredients. Keeping with the Washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine) tradition that respects the natural beauty by using seasonal and wild ingredients, Kiwa uses fresh, seasonal ingredients as much as possible in her cooking. She also enjoys using ingredients locally sourced from Kochi and other rural areas. Inspired by a gastronomic family that owned and ran a Ryokan (traditional Japanese style inn) for many years, that served authentic kaiseki (individual small dishes used to serve a variety of Japanese foods), she has been professionally trained to be a chef in the US, France and Japan. Now Kiwa is a culinary innovator whose passion is to teach Japanese cooking without ever compromising on the use of fresh and seasonal ingredients. She is excited to share with you the story behind Japanese cultural food and its spiritual nature.

Huge department stores brim with shoppers, neon flashes from dusk to dawn, and the entire world pays heed to the slightest fluctuation on the Nikkei Index. From the Imperial Palace and Meiji Shrine to the fabled Ginza district, 20th-century Tokyo is an intriguing composite of East and West. Yuppies sporting Walkmen bow formally in greeting. Women in kimonos and Dior suits stroll side-by-side. Geishas play samisens while disc jockeys play the Top Forty. Japanese houses of wood and paper stand in the shadow of towering steel and mortar. Not far away, one of the world's most impressive sights soars 12,388 feet to its snow-clad peak: Mount Fuji, the majestic symbol of Japan.
