JJ Kitchen in Tokyo

Dear our wonderful members and guests,

It is with deep sadness to announce that we have decided to close JJ Kitchen for the time being.

During the past 5 years, we have enjoyed cooking and discussing cultural issues with each and everyone. However, Junko had a stroke in June and is currently in the hospital undergoing physiotherapy. Since we do not know how long this will take, we have come to the conclusion to close our doors.

For those of you that still have our vouchers, we will be contacting you separately.
For JJ Kitchen members, we will contact you regarding future lessons.

We thank you all for the love and support you have shown JJ Kitchen, and we hope that we can cook together again.

Located in the center of
food trend in Tokyo.

Located in the lively, fashionable Ebisu neighborhood, my kitchen is in a quiet, sun-filled flat. It is also in walking distance from Daikanyama and Nakameguro. You may enjoy strolling around those two of the most fashionable and very popular residential areas in Tokyo before/after your class. Despite being very close to Shibuya, you will find the neighborhood quieter and a little more laid back, definitely charming and very hip!
