TanpopoStudio was established in late 2017 after closing Tanpopo Noodle Shop, which my husband and I owned for almost two decades and decided it was time to move on to new challenges and opportunities. Our vision for TanpopoStudio was to create a platform to showcase our years of culinary experiences, cooking classes, Japanese culture, arts and crafts, and international travel.
Today, we are pleased to announce we have done just that and are now looking to optimize our services to better assist our clients. To further this goal, we are first changing our company name and then separating our travel services from our culinary business such as cooking classes and private events.
Tanpopo Journeys is the place you can find everything about our travel services:
- Tailor-made trips to Japan
- Small-Group Journeys
- Japan Travel Tips and Destinations
- Our Travel Partners
The Japanese Kitchen
Our food recipes and culinary-related services will now be moved to the food blog, The Japanese Kitchen.
The Japanese Kitchen is where you can find:
- Recipes, Photos, and Videos
- Private Cooking Lessons and Events
- Public Cooking Classes
- Stories Behind
Our social media sites remain the same to provide everyone with the latest updates and events:
- Facebook -> TanpopoStudio
- Instagram -> Koshiki Smith
- Newsletter-> TanpopoStudio
- Tanpopo Studio Channel on Youtube
- Twitter -> Tanpopomn
To see the latest on cooking classes, please go to our Facebook page. To peek at what we eat and do on a daily basis and tours in progress, check out our Instagram.
In the last three years, we have touched by many who joined tours, classes, pop-ups, and simply giving us cheers along the way. We would love to see you all in the next phase of our journey. Thank you.
Koshiki and Ben Smith
