Hello.My business name is "homecoming TAKA,Tokyo". My family stayed in Malaysia, the United States, Mexico and China for 15 years due to my business. We experienced different cultures and kindness from local people, as a result we could have a lot of really good memories. Since I retired in April 2018, my family wanted to give back to foreigners visiting Japan from now on. After thinking in various ways, I decided to create opportunities for foreigners to experience the spirit of Japanese culture and OMOTENASHI(hospitality) mind. It is a 4 hours course, but the contents are varied. Origami, Handmade Udon, Japanese foods (Sushi,Tempra) and Matcha are made together, In addition to these, as a souvenir, my wife Keiko writes the visitor's name in calligraphy on colored paper.

There is a traditional Japanese shrine from JR Omori Station to my home. Furthermore, since this area is famous for Magome Bungo, I will explain this point. After the experience course at home, we will see off to JR Omori Station, but if there is any request after that, we will respond as a volunteer.
