I have been a volunteer tour guide for aitaijapan – Association for Independent Tourist Assistance in Japan – since 2005. I have met a variety of foreign tourists and have various unforgettable memories, even if the meeting was just for one day. All of the people are very important to me. I still keep in touch with some of them.
Through my guide experience, I’d like foreign visitors to know more about ordinary Japanese life.
So I have decided to open my kitchen and give you this unique experience.
Why don’t you come to my house and enjoy cooking a Japanese home meal?
Please go to Application and fill out the reservation form and send it at least two weeks beforehand.
I can accept only one group ( max. 3 people) a day.
Meet at the North exit of JR Kawanishi Ikeda station, on JR Takarazuka line. I will pick up you. I just accept 3 people in one lesson because of the capacity of my car.
After the cooking experience, please use a taxi, on your way to the station. I will help to arrange for calling a taxi to get to the nearest station. It will cost approximately ¥1000. Please pay directly for the driver in cash.
It takes about 30 min. from Shin-Osaka Station to Kawanishi Ikeda Station by express train.
