What we will do

In my special Japanese cooking and culture class taken place in central Tokyo, you’ll learn how to make a traditional Udon noodle dish, and experience Japanese origami which is the art of paper folding. In Japanese, “ori” means folding and “gami” means paper.

We start from making your own Udon noodles from scratch – with a lot of mixing and kneading, using your feet!

While we let the Udon dough rest and be ready for cooking, you will try Japanese origami. You will learn how to create a beautiful origami, like a crane-shaped one with easy to follow instructions provided by this course. You can do it everywhere once you learn it. Let’s surprise your family or friends with your origami skill!

You will get a recipe so you are able to make Udon noodles back home!!

Hi, I’m Wakana.

I was born and grew up here in Tokyo. I’ve lived in Australia and Canada to study English.

I really like to meet new people, make friends and talk about different cultures. At the moment I offer Calligraphy, Cooking, Origami and Tsumami-zaiku workshops.

I am a licensed calligraphy instructor. I’ve been learning Japanese Calligraphy (“Shodo”) since I was 8 years old.

I also studied Nutrition and have worked as a dietitian. I love to eat, I live to eat!! If you like fish, I can take you to the best Japanese restaurant!

I want to introduce Japanese culture in a fun way. My main goal is to help visitors to Japan have a memorable time here:)

Where we will meet

The workshop is held in central Tokyo, it’s about 10 minutes away from Akihabara or Ueno.

What I will provide

Ingredients for Udon noodle dish

Green tea

A recipe of Udon

I really enjoyed with Wakana, she is very nice and Pleasant to talk and everything is in a good atmosphere, the udon came out great and it was very fun to cook it, I also really enjoyed creating beautiful origami. For those who are interested Wakana also selling adorable earrings with a tiny origami that she makes by herself at a very decent price.
