Our tour with Makiko was amazing...
Margaret T
, Apr 2018
Our tour with Makiko was amazing. She met us at the train station. First she showed us in some of the grocery stores around her neighborhood such as meat, convenience, fruit/ veggies. She also took us into a sweet shop and bought us Mochi. I fell in love with Mochi and had it a lot during the rest of our trip in Japan. We walked to her home. Her house is very lovely and well kept. She offered tea and gave us the directions to make our meals. We had no idea how much food we would be making! We prepped and made the foods then ate it. I loved the g? sushi and hope to make it again some day. Her cat came downstairs and she said he never does that so we must be real cat lovers. Finally she drove us to the trainstation to leave. It was an amazing tour and everyone who wants to learn to cook Japanese foods should try it.

Makiko was excellent! She met us at...

Makiko was excellent! She met us at the train station, walked us through a butcher shop and market to show us how and where the locals shop. She then took us to her home where she taught us how to cook dishes that we had requested. She is good with large groups and was very accommodating of our needs. Would do this again!
