Perhaps, anyone who has visited Japan before once or twice has a favorite restaurant to enjoy their special local food in Tokyo.  A great place in Asakusa to have exceptional tempura after visiting Sensoji temples, an excellent pork bone based ramen shop at Ramen Street in Tokyo Station, or maybe a small gem shop in Tsukiji to enjoy their super fresh sushi at 5AM in the morning.  The local food and places where you and your partner can experience to have the precious time together.  


So here is an idea to enjoy Japanese local food from a different aspect today.  


Since you want to experience "more" about Japanese food and localness, why don't you cook Japanese food of your own at Comburger where it is located at the heart of Shinjuku?  


We would like to think Comburger cooking class as a hidden gem of experiencing something new in Tokyo.  A small cooking class held at a very local apartment in the center of Shinjuku led by Mr. Sato, who we call him “Sensei”, is an expert of cooking Japanese local food.  Mr. Sato is a great teacher indeed who is also super fluent in English, apparently because he used to live in the U.S for 4 years in the past.  If our friends could describe him in 3 words, they would be “funny”, “knowledgeable”, and “reliable”.  


What makes this cooking class so great is that you can experience its pure localness in a local apartment in Shinjuku by having enjoyable chat with a local friend.  Furthermore, what Mr. Sato teaches us to cook is just exceptional as if you could hardly believe that it was actually cooked by yourself at first!  That's how delicious the food is, or perhaps because of his magical recipe, we should say :-)  

Our recommendation menu is Temaki Sushi which is a self hand rolled sushi you make of your own, often enjoyed at homes by the Japanese families in a party style.  And what makes this Temaki Sushi so fun is that you can make your own combinations of the favorite ingredients such as salmon + vegetables + mayonaise, scallops + lemon + vegetables, natto + vegetables + cheese, and so on.  Not only that, you can even put fried chicken, sausages, teriyaki beef instead of just rolling typical fish and vegetables with the rice, because it is simply what makes Temaki Sushi so creative and enjoyable :-)   Sometimes it may be fun to have sushi of your own instead of having real sushi prepared by the professionals served at restaurants!

Every time at Comburger with Mr Sato, after doing “Itadakimasu!” with everyone at the table before the meal, you will be shocked at a first bite that makes you completely speechless.  Why?  Because it is sooooo good!  

Thanks to Mr. Sato's magical recipe!  We have nothing but praises for this unique class that has full of local experiences and excellent food that completely blew our mind.  


What we also love most about this class other than its exquisite offerings, is the room that is effortlessly unique and a cozy place to dine in with wonderful Japanese music to be paired.  Comburger has a venue that works perfectly for both lunch and dinner with your friends, families, and couples.  


In addition to that, what makes it easier for attending this class is that you don't have to bring anything.  The aprons, the towels, etc, will be prepared by the Comburger.  So just bring YOU along nice and safe and make sure you'll be there on time!  It will be a good 7 minute walk with Mr. Sato from the station to the cooking studio while you can also enjoy the short walking tour of Golden Gai by him! 


Last but not least, Picrumb, one of the best foodie websites of more than 2,000 foreign guests visiting everyday, would proudly like to introduce Comburger for your unique experience in Japan that you will never forget!

    Aloha Mr. Sato,
    My husband and I are chaperoning 2 high school graduates (the trip to Japan is their graduation present). Their parents want them to take a cooking class, thus we are at your site. My question is: Is it okay for the 2 boys to attend your class by themselves or would you like us to wait there while they are cooking? They have been to Japan many times and one of them speaks Japanese. Please email me a response at
    Warmest Aloha, Allyson
