Hi, my name is Koshiki Smith. My husband and I ran a chef-owned Japanese restaurant in MN. After successfully running the restaurant for 17 years, I decided to pursue my dream of taking clients on culinary journeys to Japan. I am a certified Japan specialist, travel advisor, cooking instructor, and food blogger. In private, I live in Minnesota with my husband, two boys, a dog, and three chickens.
