This site will cover everything from Japanese kitchen knives and cookware, to recipes, techniques, skills and other useful knowledge about Japanese foods.

The site is meant for beginners or amateur chefs, but maybe professionals will also find some useful information.   The Chef Dojo will continue to grow over time with more useful articles and recipes, so come back and visit often!

Who runs this place?

This site is actually just run by me — Chef Goku!

But, I am not actually a chef, and my name is not actually Goku.  I am just a regular dude, who — after living in Japan for a couple of years — decided to learn how to cook all these wonderful Japanese dishes for himself.

This site was mainly made to document my own struggles, as I learn all about the art of Japanese cooking.  Hopefully, I can help some other people along the way!
