I love kimono, also love to dress up in kimono for our guests.
I’m so happy they bring nice memory of the trip with lovely photos of them wearing kimono.
I try my best so that the culture activities at WAK JAPAN will be the best memory of the trip among many experiences during their stay in Kyoto.

Mieko Nomura

Cooking

As DASHI (broth stock) is most important for WASHOKU (Japanese cuisine), first I teach how to make it.
Using the Japanese unique cooking utensils such as a wooden tub for making sushi rice and a square pan for rolling eggs, I always do my best not only to make pleasant WASHOKU cooking but also to introduce the culture of WASHOKU to visitors from overseas.

Asuka Adachi

Traditional culture experience

Everytime I meet our guests, I make it a custom to refer to the connection between the traditional culture and our modern life.
Then that leads to an understanding of Japanese people and society.
At the end of the program, guests show me a smile with satisfaction. Those smile encourages me a lot.
