The New Year holiday, oshōgatsu, is one of the most important times of year in Japan and food – osechi ryōri – plays a central part in its celebration. With its sensational array of colors, shapes, and flavors, osechi embodies much of what Japanese food is famous for. For this year’s class, Chef Tateno is assembling a set of dishes that will be fun and easy to prepare, and let you add something very special to your oshōgatsu holiday!

Cancellation Policy: By the way, if you make a reservation, but later find that you cannot attend, please let us know as early as possible.

#Please note that payment of the participation fee will still be expected for a cancellation after the deadline and in the case of a simple failure to attend after making a reservation. Bank transfer details will be provided. A person who reserves a class spot, but then fails to attend, without notifying Kitchen Nippon, may be blocked from further participation. We have decided to implement this rule because we purchase materials for each class and late cancellations and no-shows result in wastage and make it difficult to hold the class fee down.


This class will be taught by Chef Machiko Tateno.
