"YUCa's Japanese Cooking" aims to give people from other countries an opportunity for experiencing Japanese culture through cooking and food.
Our cooking classes are directed mainly at English and focus on Japanese home meals that are eaten everyday at home. We also provide the class of making Japanese ingredients, basic soup stock, healthy "BENTO BOX" and seasonal dishes.
The class is mainly provided at YUCa's private kitchen, which is located in the center of Tokyo. You can experience Japanese home visit, learn cooking techniques and culture with homelike atmosphere.
You may also meet my son and puppies,
Mario and Luigi.

AMAZING!!! If you have the chance and want too learn how to really cook traditional yet modern Japanese food, I highly recommend this. Yuca herself is beyond sweet and accommodating. If I could rate this higher I would. We went as two adults and a 22 and 16 year old. All my expectations were exceeded! A must!!!
Cooking with Yuca was the best experience in Japan! We were a lovely group of six and Yuca picked us up at the train station. Her kitchen is perfect for the experience and it was great getting to know her and japanese cuisine better! We learned interesting things about planning japanese meals and setting the table and then prepared dashi, ramen and gyoza pizza as well as an appetizer. Everything was explained very well, we had a lot of fun, learned a lot and the food was delicious! We also got to taste different types of Sake and learned some interesting facts about them as well. Yuca communicated very well and made sure that we were all having a good time. She's a lovely person and we're incredibly happy to have booked this experience!
