Home-cooked food in Tokyo, Japan


On the last night that we are in Tokyo, our training coordinator Hana hosted us at his home for dinner. Their hospitality is impeccable and heartwarming.



Hana’s wife – Noriko – prepared dinner for us. Yummy sushi roll, chawanmushi, clam miso soup and sakura red bean glutinous rice for takeaway.


Aparently this Sakura Red Bean Glutinous Rice is for family with daughters and it is made to celebrate Girls Day. Since they do not have daughter and we are a group of girls who refused to grow old. Noriko made this specially for us!


We brought a cake over as dessert and it was really yummy. Soft, fluffy and oh so delicious. I love all their pretty cups, plates and utensils.


She even prepared a gift for us girls, Celine handkerchiefs with our Japanese name embroidered on it. Awww.


Their son Yuske is really shy and adorable! We asked for him to play violin for us and he shyly agree after we gave him some encouragement.



We spotted this at their home and apparently it is commonly found in homes who has a son.


We had a fun evening playing family friendly memory games and had a great time interacting with this family.
