She is a "cooking researcher" who uses her own original techniques to introduce cooking that everyone can enjoy. She has written books on such diverse themes as Japanese cuisine, home cooking, entertaining, and cakes and sweets. In the program, she both introduces the Japanese food culture now drawing attention abroad and proposes her own easy-to-make Japanese recipes. She offers ideas, too, for alternatives to items and utensils that might be hard to obtain abroad so that you can make your own Japanese-style food wherever you happen to be.
