I also offer cold beer and SAKE as an option.
It is different from that which you eat at a restaurant, because it is the local mama who can tell the taste of home.
So you can easily make it at home too! If you master this, you can arrange any ingredients, not pork!

Excellent experience through making Tonkatsu with Yumi. She is thoughtful and friendly which I felt we can connect through a personal level. Would definitely recommend this while you're in Tokyo!

This was my second time taking a class with Yumi and, like last time, it was another great experience. Yumi was very helpful and informative. The tonkatsu we made was delicious and we had a great time cooking. I highly recommend this class to anyone. You will definitely have a great time and learn a lot!

Last year we took an Okonomiyaki class and it was very fun. We re-returned to Yumi's class with Kei to make Tonkatsu. The second time around, everyone knew each other and so the atmosphere was very friendly. Yumi is very knowledgable and we had so much fun cooking with her. Yumi wittiness and friendliness made the class very fun. I enjoyed Yumi's cooking experience for 2 years, and many more to come. I also want to give a shout out to Yumi for taking the time to show us around Asakusa. Will return for more!

We used google maps and Yumi’s picture of the outside of her building to easily find the place. There were 2 hosts, both were very welcoming. Both are house wives and cooking is definately second nature to them. Easy conversation, fun experience, and it tasted so yummy. We loved the experience in a Japanese home, it felt more authentic and it’s something you couldn’t experience in a professional kitchen studio. As a tourist in Japan we really enjoyed this. We made traditional tonkatsu and arrangement tonkatsu and home made miso soup. It was served with white rice and shredded cabbage. I was so full. Will be making this soon, she made it easy to duplicate at home! Thanks Yumi!

Yumi was so lovely and friendly. She also offered to help if I needed directions or translation during my stay in Tokyo. The food was easy to prepare and taste super!
