Me and my partner absolutely loved our experience that Mariko took us on. We learned some fantastic cultural items that we will forever cherish!

Learning caligraphy, origami, traditional Japanese etiquette and some delicious food ticked off all the boxes for our trip to Japan.

We would definately recommend doing this during your time in Japan, especially if you have a real desire to learn more about its rich and wonderful culture!

Thank You Mariko!

What an amazing experience. Mariko and her family treated me to the most amazing experience. I was welcomed into their home of 4 generations under 1 roof. They took me patiently through the steps of teaching me some incredible crafts. The finale was lunch prepared by Mariko's mum. Her food was comparable to any top restaurant and I felt leaving so special and spoilt by my experience. Take a cooking class and learn the local culture. I cannot recommend enough.

My 11-year old daughter and I equally had the most wonderful time! It was a well-rounded class and certainly a must experience for all ages. we ended up with so much more than we expected. Mariko also gave us tips which we used straight away so I suggest you all take this class on the onset of your trip. It was reallya lovely bonding experience with my daughter. keep it up Mariko! You are inspiring and touching lives with your work.

This is a must visit for every Manga aficionado! And you won't getan wet even on a rainy day as the broadway is completely covered shopping arcade. While at street level you have many restaurants most of the manga shops are on the second to fourth floors (elevators; wheel chair accessible )

I took my family of 5 to Japan for 2 weeks over Easter and everyone wanted to go to Tokyo. Unfortunately there are no hop on hop off tours of the city and the guided tours I found were full or inconvenient.

When I found Mariko's one stop Japanese culture session I signed up not knowing what to expect. We started at 10am in the morning and everyone was begging to stay when we had to leave at 3pm. My 9 year old girl loves the origami, and Calligraphy, my 12 year old son loves the food, learning how to use Japanese ingredients to make awesome food from scratch, my 18 year old found visiting a 4 generation Japanese family home in Tokyo a more intimate and interesting way to learn about Japan. My wife and I loved it all. We highly recommend it! Mariko's English is good, and she customizes the time and and content to make it perfect for everyone involved.

Dear Kankoryoko-san Thank you very much for your wonderful review. Our family had a really good time with your family. Your family's Origami and Shodo works were really wonderful. Please cook Okonomiyaki at your home and use Froshiki in your country! And your Japanese was perfect. Thank you again!

This is such a lovely and genuine experience when visiting Japan. Mariko not only teaches you about Japanese traditions but invites you into her home. We had the privilege of meeting her mother and her beautiful daughter and all amongst a fun and cultural experience. Thank you Mariko, it was such a lovely way to spend the day. Both my sister and I had a great time.

PS I am very sorry about the lateness of this review! We visited in April last year!

We have just spent the day with Mariko and her mother in their home, participating in a number of traditional Japanese arts. Origami, furoshiki, calligraphy and learning how to make okonomiyaki was all very interactive and lots of fun. In addition to making okonomiyaki, Mariko's mum had prepared many side dishes all of which were delicious and we were stuffed full 😀. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a taste of some of the unique crafts Japan has to offer. As an aside, we had no trouble making our way to the right metro station or finding the right exit - easy as!

This culture experience provided by Mariko and her mother is excellent, they are very accommodating, and make sure you get the most out of your experience. I enjoyed every part of my day with Mariko, it was a lot of fun making origami and learning about furoshiki and calligraphy, and making the delicious Okonomiyaki was by far my favourite part of the whole day. If you have a spare day in Tokyo, make sure to consider Mariko's culture experience, it's worth it!

Mariko met us at the subway station (I messaged her on Facebook that we were running late, as we had trouble finding the correct entrance to the direction we wanted initially) as promised, then we stopped by a Japanese confectionery before she welcome us to her home. She taught us origami, furoshiki, shodo (which is harder than it looks!) and gyoza-making. Her mom is certified to work at Japanese restaurants and made many more fabulous side dishes to go with our gyoza, serving a delicious meal fit for royalty that left us stuffed. My 12 year-old had picked this over Disney Sea (disclosure: we are from the US and have been to Disney World multiple times) and we have no regrets. Thank you to Mariko-san and to her mother for welcoming us into their home!
