Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    This is a unique opportunity to visit the home of a local and explore traditional culture and cuisine. Kanae will welcome you into her comfortable family home located in one of the most peaceful and luxurious residential areas of Sapporo. Sip on a welcome drink as you immerse yourself in local Hokkaido culture and get to know your host Kanae as she shares stories about herself, her family and living in Hokkaido. Join Kanae in her open kitchen to learn to prepare a traditional homemade Japanese meal. You can expect the cooking portion of your experience to last about 1-1 1/2 hours before you enjoy the meal you helped prepare together.

    Not a traditional cooking class where everyone is cooking. She explained the foods and what she was doing. We helped make a couple of sauces. It was more like hanging out in a kitchen talking about culture, family, and experiences.
