Japanese Cuisine Fanatic

My name is Shihoko. I am a Japanese native who is now living in Australia! I like to cook all the delicious Japanese homemade dishes I ate while growing up in Japan and share authentic Japanese recipes through my blog and photographs. I am passionate about showing how simple homemade Japanese cooking is, even outside of Japan.
