Kitchen Kujo Tokyo

Cooking in Ueno & Yanesen

The Kobayashi family and their translator and ramen chef Jun offer an interesting variety of cooking and culture classes at this handy studio devoted to cooking with organic products. Learn how to make tofu, miso, vegan ramen and curry rice with guest instructor Curryman (who dresses in a wacky costume). Also available are calligraphy, tea-ceremony and yoga classes.

On the first and third Saturdays of the month an expert fishmonger leads a shopping trip to Toyosu followed by a tutorial in preparing sashimi. At night the space transforms into a bar with events such as movie screenings, and open mic nights.
