Experience in the kitchens of ordinary households in Shizuoka City

Enjoying the conversation with the local Japanese friendly staff

This service started from our desire to give people the opportunity to experience the food culture of an ordinary Japanese household.
So we decided to use Japanese rice to start an experience that would allow overseas travellers to feel and learn more about Japanese culture.
We think it will be a good memory to “experience the local culture” when travelling”.

Make rice balls

The experience allows visitors to choose three of five different flavours and make their own onigiri using Japanese rice. Staff will teach you how to make your own onigiri. You can participate alone, with friends, couples, families or tourist groups.
