Japanese Cooking Workshops


Culinary Experience 


Kakyo's Kitchen

Welcome to my cooking workshop page!

Discover the secrets of Japanese Cuisine.

“WASHOKU” 和食, Japanese cuisine has been registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage since 2013.

Japanese food is healthy, tasty and has a lot of variety.  It is equally important that the food looks attractive for your eyes. 

Kakyo's Kitchen creates a space where people can come together and share the passion for cooking and eat delicious food. 

Each cooking workshop has only a handful of participants, which allows me to help everyone individually. It also ensures that you really will be able to cook all dishes at home yourself. We share a good time discovering Japanese food culture in a relaxing and fun atmosphere. 

Join me and let's have our “Japanese Culinary Experience” together!

In Kakyo's Kitchen cooking workshops, we will make:

  • Delicious Sushi or unique art-design Sushi

  • Tasty homemade Japanese dishes 

  • New foodie friends

Online cooking workshops are possible too and have proven to be very popular the past few years.

Looking for something fun to do on a special occasion?

  • Celebrations? Children's Birthday Party?

  • Fun event with families and friends? 

  • Team building event? 

Let me help you to create your memorable moments with a customized cooking workshop. ​​(online or in person)

In case you don't want to do a workshop but want to pre-order

freshly prepared Sushi / Japanese food for your special occasions, please contact me.

Looking forward to seeing you in Kakyo's Kitchen!

About me

Hi, I am Kakyo

I was born in Nikko, Japan, surrounded by beautiful mountains and historical monuments, north of Tokyo. 


My cooking journey started at a young age, often helping my mother in the kitchen. I have learned about Japanese food culture, which has a deep-rooted respect for tradition and appreciation for nature.

Growing up with those experiences, cooking became my passion.

I left Japan and lived in different countries, such as The Netherlands, Singapore and now in Basel, Switzerland.

Soon, I realized how much Sushi and Japanese Cuisine are loved by people around the world. I wanted to share my easy, delicious and authentic Japanese dishes with other food lovers.


I qualified myself as an Art Design Sushi instructor, called Kazari Maki Sushi” in 2018. (JSIA Tokyo Sushi Academy).

I would love to introduce you to this special food art. It is exciting to make and you can express your artistry in a single Sushi roll.

I invite you to join me in my workshops. Allow me to take you on a tasty journey to Japan!
