    うらやましいわ >_<
    I looked at Aki's cooking website and it looks really good! I wish I was in Japan!

      Hi Amanda, ^ ^
      As we both live in Tokyo, Tokyo is easily picked up as a location.
      But we are planning to do this kind of event overseas in the future, if only we can find a good partner who can organize the event with us.

    oh man, I wish I live in Japan… this sounds fun!!!!

      Hi Patty,
      This is not one-off event, we are planning some interesting events in the future, so you may be able to join us while you are traveling in Japan agaiin. 😉

      Hi Ilaria,
      Yes, we will gradually be able to try some new projects like this, now that I am not the only one who writes this blog. ^ ^

      Hi Tinny,
      Please don't be discouraged. This is only the very first event, we will plan more events in the future. ^ ^

    Sounds like so much fun! I so wish I could be there. 😥

      Hi Sedonia,
      One of our goals is to travel around the world by spreading kawaii Japanese culture or teaching Japanese home-cooking.
      haha, ^ ^; Wish we could do this in the U.S soon~~!

      • sedonia2 December 8, 2010 at 12:51 am #

        That's really great. I'd love if you can come here some day. 🙂

    That event sounds like a great idea. I hope many people will participate and that it turns out to be a very successfully event for you. 🙂

    • kirin December 9, 2010 at 1:16 am #

      Thank you. We wish to have events like this in several different cities in the world in the future. But to achieve that we have to work even harder. ^ ^;

  7. Fran December 8, 2010 at 7:58 pm #

    mm..yum!! looks like a fun event!! looking forward to the post-event photos! will you be doing a post/ videos/tutorials on these things? 😀

    • kirin December 9, 2010 at 1:20 am #

      We may share the post-event photos later. Since Aki joined TKE, I hope we can create more cooking videos/tutorials. Team play is better than one-man operation. As the blog grows, I started to need more members who try to make the TKE blog more interesting.

    I wish I could be there too! (T_T)
    I hope, that you'll have lots of fun! 🙂

      Ah~ I wish you were here, you would like such an event. Maybe next time?? :p

    Hello Kirin, Will you be doing this again at the end of this year? Me and my Boyfrend will be in Tokio (shinjuku) from 28 dec till 12 of Januari and I realy like to attend and learn how to make this. I love cooking Japanese and he loves eating it:-) Hope you do, or mebay for te 2 of us? Kind of Regards Yuthika

    • kirin November 5, 2011 at 2:34 am #

      Thank you for your note Yuthika.
      I will think about it. Do you mind if we choose other type of dishes? (Of course authentic Japanese cuisine, but different from this menu.) Do you have specific Japanese recipe that you want to learn how to cook? (You can refer to the page of "Japanese foods")

      You can reply to me via email.
      I may write up a post to see if there are any like-minded participants. But even if it's only 2 of you, I can think of holding the event again. Anyhow we need to discuss this over personal email exchanges. Awaiting your contact. 😉
