Live a Creative Life with CoCooking

At CoCooking we thrive to define a creative yet sustainable lifestyle through social aspects of food and cooking. We plan and operate sustainable kitchens in local areas of Japan which not only serve as a place to cook and eat, but also a creative workshop space where people can come learn, work, and/or play. We also provide workshops, educational material, and consultation regarding creativity, food, and culture. All of our work is based on “Pattern Language,” a method to verbalize and structure tacit knowledge so it can be shared/utilized.
