    What to Expect
    A truly delightful local with a zest for life, Rita is a wealth of knowledge about the local culture and speaks great English. After studying in the US, she returned to Japan to become an entrepreneur and make time for her main passion: cooking and sharing her food and culture with others! Rita follows the Japanese principles of mottainai (avoiding waste) and ichiju sansai (literally "one soup three dishes" or a balanced approach to menu planning). She tries to balance her dishes with a variety of flavors that come together as one. She usually uses fresh, seasonal vegetables in her cooking to make healthy, well-balanced and nutritious dishes. Rita also delights in beautiful table settings using traditional plates and cutlery so guests can enjoy the visual and sensory experience of her food.

    Rita will provide you with recipes in English for the dishes you learned to take home with you after your experience, leaving you well-prepared to recreate a satisfying, authentic, and home cooked Japanese meal for your loved ones back home!
