I'm not a professional chef, so the menu is a simple home-made lunch. I work as a professional English tour guide and would like to share a meal with you that also has a cultural and historical introduction to Japan and its culture. I really enjoy talking to people, so I want us to discuss or exchange opinions about our home countries. My activity places more emphasis on discussion and explaining the cultural elements about Japan. If you're interested a home-made lunch with a friendly atmosphere and some information about Japan, then this activity is for you! What you can expect : - arrival to my home - introductions so we can get to know each other. This is an important element of Japanese hospitality. I will also share some information with you about the religions in Japan. - cooking process with an explanation of the 'umami' taste and the food culture in Japan. We will prepare the ingredients (cutting, and wrapping) and then enjoy lunch together. The menu : ※Chirashi zushi (Vinegared rice with thin strips of egg, vegetables and crab meat arranged on top) ※Gyoza (Fried dumplings with vegetable and meat ingredients in a flour wrapper) ※Tempura (deep fried vegetables) ※Miso soup (Japanese traditional soup made from soybean paste)
Hello everyone, it's Tad! I studied clinical psychology in my university to help children in need of special help. And after university, I moved to Australia for two years. During my time in Australia, I was surprised by the beauty of nature and how wide the world is, and I was helped and well treated by locals. I also realized Japanese has very unique and beautiful culture. I went to see the outside world of Japan but I was the amazing aspects of my own country. That experience made me want to share Japanese culture and help you experience traditional Japanese hospitality. I have over 5 years of tourism experience and have introduced both history and tradition of Japan to the visitors from all over the globe (Over 1,500 people). Especially I hold a cultural food walk tour which complies with any special dietary restrictions in Osaka.

My home is 30 years old; built when Japan's economy was booming. It boasts a traditional Japanese aesthetic and is ideal for those who want to experience Japanese living. 3 min walk (300m) to Hankyu Sonoda station which is 10 min to Osaka (Umeda Station), 30 min to Namba by trains. Why not experience a traditional Japanese house where no international tourists will be seen.You will find how locals live with the quiet and peaceful neighbourhood.

As my profession is not cooking but tour guiding so what we cook is simple home cooking meal and more cultural and historical introduction and guiding is involved. Japanese food culture is also deeply related to historical and architectural matters so I put more emphasis on academic explanation.
