    Shiori and her husband invited me into their home for a great evening of cooking, dinner and conversation. It was a lovely way to experience what local life and food culture is like in Sapporo. I recommend you skip lunch, and make sure you try Shiori’s plum saké, you won’t regret it!

    ...We were made to feel very welcome to her beautiful home and garden... A really genuine Ubud experience that did not feel touristy at all, instead like you were a special guest in the family. Thank you so much for a real highlight of our trip. Highly recommend for all ages!
