Asano Yuko

Yuko Asano

I love Japan and all facets of Japanese culture such as gardens and traditional architecture. I would like to introduce you to many aspects of Japan, but I have decided to start with Japanese food.

I’m an aficionado of cooking, tea, herbs, Chinese herbal medicine dishes, dietary education, vegan dishes, cereals dishes, and sweets with licenses in all of those subjects.
