Japanese food culture, Food event in Tokyo, Japanese unique ingredients and classes
Thank you for coming the sake tasting and food pairing class!
Since I've been giving cooking class for 2 and half year, this is the first time to welcomed people from Slovenia. I was so curious the food culture in Slovenia.
Slovenia is a mall country next to Italy, and there are abundant vegetables and seafood in the country. Event though there are many kinds of fresh seafood, they don't eat them row, always prepared and served the dishes.
This is a food samples to taste with sake. The food are common Japanese food and you can buy them most of the groceries. I'm always so glad to hear the guests find something new taste.
Some food are the first taste for the ladies. I'm happy to share my favorite food with them!

Thank you for coming sake tasting class at Kitasando cooking studio.
They had traveled through Japan for weeks then came back to Tokyo. The day they came was the last day of their stay in Tokyo, Japan. I appreciate you booked such a precious last day of their travel!
I'd love to share Japanese food culture before leave.
They are very polite and listened my lecture carefully. There are 4 types of sake and can be tasted with instruction.
The picture is the time we did the tasting of each types of sake.
After the process of tasting each sake, we enjoy talking about food culture differences.
Now I knew the most common alcohol among young people is fruits cider. Sound yummy!
Hope you fine something new to Japanese Sake, and enjoy more sake in Sweden!
Thank you for coming!
Have you heard Yakiniku, which is indoor BBQ often grill small bite size Beef, but also there are Pork and chicken on the restaurants' menus.
Grilled on charcoal heat then dip several sauces. The meat goes well with beer. Grilled meat is super treat food for everyone.
I just heard from Israeli, Yakiniku BBQ is now popular among the people who visit Japan.
The beer glass is served frozen! I can't get enough of it.
This thin sliced one is beef tongues.
We eat it with specific soy sauce based yakiniku sauce or salt added fresh lemon juice.
Yakiniku is one of the food I'd like you try while you are in Tokyo.
There are many Yakiniku restaurants in Tokyo.
Ventilation system in each restaurants are great, so you will not get the smell from the grill.
I recommend you try Yakiniku while you are in Tokyo.
I've heard "Arakicho" in Yotsuya area, my neighborhood, but have never visited there.
Arakicho is well known for a bar district. My family has early bird life style so I prefer to stay at home in the evening.
Today, I was walking around with my son, who likes do magics. I've been wanted to bring my son to a magic bar in Arakicho.
While we were looking for the magic bar, we walked through cozy alleys in the district and encountered many impressive science there.
The day was held local bon dance festival. I heard the special music somewhere around the area. My son and I saw the little shrine with beautiful lanterns with foxes. This shrine is for a god of harvests, later business.
Many lanterns decollated along the street. There are many bars, Izakaya and casual restaurants in the street.
I saw on TV about the bar named Vowz bar before. The bartender and the staff are all priests and they serve the drinks and also talk with the guests.
The TV show introduced the bar very fascinatingly. I will visit next time.....
Finally we found the bar at the corner of the little building.
We saw stunning magic show and individual table magic. My son was so exited to the magician!
Thank you for the great evening!
