About me -

This cooking blog site is my third expansion – continuing to document my everyday cooking and creations in a authentic but current  Japanese (Washoku) style. It is predominantly about cooking and food but with an occasional glimpse of the ‘real life in Tokyo’ – my lifestyle.

We live together with the four seasons – spring, summer, autumn and winter and appreciate  the “seasonal natural foods”.   


I hope this site provides a glimpse and insight to a real homemade  Japanese cooking style.
