Happy June

I’m just about to start the June, Culinary Guide to Japan tour, and very excited about the trip. While I have a few moments, I wanted to share with you some of the good things happening at TanpopoStudio.

We have a new video! from the Spring Culinary Guide to Japan tour. This short film showcases the trip and what it’s all about. A big thanks to Jakfoto Films for making this possible!

Culinary Guide to Japan Tour, October 2018

October marks the beginning of the harvest season and this is a great time to visit Japan. Enjoy a fall walk in the Kiso Valley, relax in a hot spring and savor a regional Kaiseki dinner. If you are interested in joining us, you can register online or send me an email. Hope to see you in Japan.

Japan Art + Culture Tour, Spring 2019

If you’d like to learn more about the upcoming Art and Culture Tour this spring, please join us at Wet Paint Art at the end of month for another meetup (with tea and crackers). We’ll be posting the exact date as soon as possible. If you’re interested in attending, let me know and I will update you. We’ve received some great feedback during our last meeting, and a few spaces have already been reserved. So if you’re interested, don’t miss your chance to see Tokyo, Nagano and Matsumoto. We’ve also added a 3 day optional extension to Kyoto on this tour for those of you who would like to stay longer in Japan.

Tokyo Ramen Crash Course

Private groups of 6-8 are welcome. If you have a group of friends who want to learn ramen making in Japan, we can book this according to your schedule and you’ll receive a group discount as well.

We’ll be announcing Spring tour dates for the Tokyo Ramen Crash Course in the coming weeks. Stay tuned.
