Experience Details
Koji is a fermented ingredient that helps keep our body healthy, promotes gut health, and prevents us from getting sick. It is made from cooked rice, soybeans, or a combination of the two, which are inoculated with a special culture. This versatile ingredient can be used in so many ways. Fans of fermented products like sauerkraut, kimchi, beer, and kombucha will love this Cooking with Koji Class. You’ll learn to make several dishes with koji, including sanshoku donburi (“3-colored bowl” consisting of chicken, egg, and green vegetables), miso soup, and koji pudding. If you have ever heard of koji, you probably know that this little ingredient plays an essential role in the production of Japanese sake (also known as “nihonshu” or “rice wine”). But did you know that it can also be used in miso soup, to tenderize meat, and to make pickles? Learn all about this, and more, in the Cooking with Koji Class.

Meeting Point and Meeting Time
The meeting location is at Chitose Funabashi Station (Odakyu Line). The host will meet you by the red postal box outside of the ticket gate and will walk you to the cooking class location (an 8-minute walk from the station).
Remarks
The cooking instructor has a 12-year-old chihuahua named “Colin” at her house to welcome you! He will stay in another room during the cooking class, but he is very friendly and sweet.
Experience Location
Sitting in the center of the Setagaya area ward, Chitose-Funabashi is a residential area to the west of the city. It is only 20 minutes from Shinjuku, which passes through the ever-hip Shimokitazawa along the way. You’ll find rows of apartments in this quiet neighborhood, not far from the Setagaya Art Museum and Gotokuji Temple, which plays homage to the lucky “beckoning cat” with its a sea of red and white waving maneki neko dolls. Family and friends spend time along the open banks of the peaceful Tama River, dividing Tokyo and Kanagawa with its gentle flowing waters bit further south.
