I am happy to share about my good "Green Tea Friend," who has been hosting a Japanese cooking class in Japan started an online virtual cooking class which has been a huge success. It was a privilege for tourists who visit Tokyo to take her class before (3000+ people have attended), but now her class is available online, so I thought that I have to share this news.
I thought of introducing her to you since you love Japan and green tea.
I mentioned this in my T-ching article here earlier, but just in case you missed it, here is a brief summary about Mayuko's Little Kitchen.
Mayuko’s Little Kitchen is a cooking service nestled in near Shinjuku Gyoen National Park. If you’re planning on visiting Harajuku, Meiji Shrine, or wandering around Shinjuku, a reservation at her kitchen may fit nicely in your schedule. She offers all kinds of cooking classes including matcha making for tea lovers, Panda Bento Boxes for the creative types, and perhaps a few options you’ve never experienced before! Her services have also been featured on Japanese TV shows.
Mayuko uses Zoom to teach her popular classes online now. She focuses on using ingredients that can easily find in the kitchen or supermarket outside Japan.
The class runs for 1.5-2 hours each, and she teaches you thoroughly how you can cook popular Japanese dishes.
Here are her current classes that she is offering (Looking at her images make me feel hungry!):
Chicken Nanban Class
This succulent chicken dish originated from Miyazaki Prefecture in the far south of Japan. In making Chicken Nanban we marinate the chicken in a soy sauce based sweet vinegar sauce before deep frying, and top it off with a rich tartar sauce. I have never seen anybody who does not get excited about this dish.
We will also make a suitable side dish, crispy shiitake tofu (or you can use tomato instead of tofu), which will be your life-long dish!
Here is a nice video of her using this tenugui to gift-wrap a sake bottle. How nice!

Tapioca drinks have swept a vast number of countries with their steady hold on teenagers and young adults, and Japan is not an exception to this. With the sheer amount of tapioca (or boba in some places) joints that have been popping up across Japan, it’s not an understatement that this drink is the trendy choice to sip on as you walk through Shibuya, Harajuku, or even Dotonbori. But just like waves, trends come and go, and it begs for the question: what’s the next thing that’ll make waves in Japan?
