First, we will introduce each other. I will explain about how to make delicious soba. I will give you my delicious soba recipes. Please put on aprons and also plastic gloves.

Japanese cuisine is recognized as intangible cultural heritage by UNESCO and there are many kinds of Japanese food but soba making is unique, traditional and loved by many nationalities. Japanese have a spirit called "omotenashi". It's about providing heartwarming treatment and service. The culture of making buckwheat noodles in my own home and offering it to customers with sincerity is a representation of the true spirit of hospitality. A valuable experience which can not be enjoyed in the restaurant is possible in this workshop. I hope you enjoy making soba and try to make it at home. I also teach Japanese calligraphy and green tea ceremony so if you would like to learn, let me know. (option)
I’ve visited 30 countries and made friends all over the world. One of my passions is introducing Japanese culture and cuisine wherever I go, and I enjoy making delicious soba noodles for people. After I started showing friends and family how to make soba, others heard about me through word of mouth. Now, I’ve been teaching classes for the last 5 years. When I’m not making soba, I run an IT firm and am assistant teacher for green tea ceremonies and Japanese calligraphy. I have the qualifications of food sanitation management which is taken by restaurants in Japan. I pay close attention to hygiene management.
