As you’re sitting there reading this...

Perhaps you've recently decided it's time for a change.

You're tired of the status quo and you know you need to BE healthier by cooking more often and especially foods with more vegetables and less meat.

Or perhaps, you’re already on that path...

And you need someone to talk to for guidance and support. Or more alternatively, a system, and one that happens to focus on plant based Japanese cooking.

If either of those apply to you, yatta! 🙌🙌(やった!good news!)

The Japanese cooking club is the SMARTEST way to help you get what you're looking for, today! 🤪


What is the Japanese cooking club?

The Japanese cooking club membership is designed to EMPOWER curious home cooks like you to make plant based Japanese food a delicious success THE FIRST TIME.

You'll get exclusive access to short cooking video lessons that show you EXACTLY how each dish can be made quickly and efficiently.

And, so you can enjoy the refinedumami packed flavors and aromas Japanese cuisine is known for WITHOUT having to travel hours across the ocean to get there! ❌✈


And let me ask you-  

Have you ever felt the feeling of satisfaction or accomplishment, like when the last dish you cooked  turned out the way you wanted or EVEN BETTER than you expected? 🤔

Just imagine...

Having those feelings again and again, after each Japanese dish that you made in your own kitchen, with your own hands!

And if you cook for others, imagine how it’ll feel when you start getting compliments from your friends and family, over and over again

Because YOU made something that not only tasted good, but was healthy and simple to make!

And keep imagining 😛

how that'll continue to inspire and motivate you to cook plant based Japanese foods

And more importantly, help you achieve and experience the home made Japanese foods you’d always dreamed of!

How would that feel? 

Pretty good wouldn't it!?🤭


And because this is not a cooking class or school...

you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other home cooks

Who’ve also committed to plant based Japanese foods and can help you with their experiences and insight

so you'll never get stuck!

EVEN IF you're completely new to plant based japanese cooking! 


What you get with your Japanese Cooking Club membership-

Monthly Core Video Lessons

So that you can focus on one thing at one time, without feeling overwhelmed or confused. In June, we focused primarily on dashi, one of the key ingredients for many Japanese dishes. Over the next few months, we'll continue to explore miso, shiokoji and other key ingredients used in Japanese cuisine.

Monthly Recipes with Action Plans

So that you retain and get to practice your new skills and apply your knowledge. You'll get 3 recipes centered around the ingredient of the month. Plus, an action plan to help guide you and build your confidence in the kitchen.

Monthly Activities

So that you stay incentivized to cook and practice! if it takes a little friendly competition, a cooking challenge, or the chance to win some prizes, so be it! Each month, active members will have an opportunity to win a prize, be it a bag of tea, a cookbook, official merchandise or a box of Japanese condiments... this is one EXCLUSIVE perk of being a member! 

Japanese recipe library

Your one stop shop for Japanese recipes and inspiration. Over 100+ different dishes - ranging from sides, to main courses, and desserts. A good mix of both traditional and contemporary Japanese dishes. You may never need to look anywhere else for your Japanese cooking inspiration or for that matter, get bored or feel uninspired!

The reason this is a CLUB and not a course or a cooking class-

is that it's a community and we're all here to support and learn from each other. I believe that we are  BETTER TO-GETHER.

As a Club, we'll be getting to know each other more and more and help each other along our journey through life while cooking a LOT of super tasty Japanese food! 

Frequently Asked Questions


The Japanese Cooking Club and Pat's other cooking programs are for smart and curious home cooks who are serious about making simple and authentic Japanese meals at home.

I designed these offerings for foodies who love to cook and eat. And most importantly, people who take full responsibility for their life and choose to put in the work to grow their knowledge and skills.

If you're looking for a structured and organized way to learn about Japanese cooking, with up-to-date tips, a supportive network and accountability with community, this is for you! 

If you're not willing to put in the work and apply the valuable information, my programs may not be the best fit for you.

I do my best to fill the lessons with valuable information, and strive to encourage ACTION.

We set and share MONTHLY goals and encourage each other to stay accountable.

If you're a strict vegan who does not wish to eat ANY animal products, unfortunately my programs are probably not the best fit for you.

As you may know, meat and especially fish play a common role in the Japanese diet.

And though the emphasis will be on meatless dishes, i cannot guarantee this as a vegan cooking club because it's part of my heritage, I will not ever eliminate them completely from my diet or cooking programs.

I believe a healthy diet is one that is balanced and can include all things in moderation.

I wasn’t a good cook when I first started. And if that’s how you feel, it doesn’t mean you can’t learn. I’ll teach you Japanese skills and techniques that you can apply to other non-Japanese cuisines as well.

And what better way to learn, than by surrounding yourself by like-minded people who will support you in your journey?

I care deeply about lifelong learning, and demonstrate that by example. Always reading and always trying and testing new things, especially in the kitchen. So that you can learn quicker, with less stress and less disappointment! 

I also love to help people, and my goal here is to help you succeed.

I'm not the type of person who's  going to sell you something, and not show up for you.

When you invest in my offerings, you'll get quality video lessons AND regular check-ins from me personally plus, you'll be connected to a group of like-minded Japanese food loving home cooks just like you! 

Cooking courses and classes are usually one time deals and don't have a community built in.

Nor do they have fun activities and the opportunity to show off your food and get the support you need, after the fact.

Plus, because I believe there's always room for improvement, I'll be regularly asking you for feedback on what I can do to make it a better experience for you. 

And like I said earlier, this is a community and there will be plenty of opportunity to interact with, learn from and support each other!

Meet Pat Tokuyama!

Pat Tokuyama, Pharm.D., BCPS is a pharmacist by training and also a board certified pharmacotherapy specialist. 

After working over 16 years in the healthcare industry, he's come to understand the impact of food can have on health.

It's this background that's led him to design several Japanese cooking programs to empower people how to eat a healthier more balanced diet with Japanese food.

He believes that with a balanced diet AND regular exercise, it IS possible to get off or reduce reliance on certain prescription medications or avoid taking them all together.

Having significant family history of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease, it's a personal goal he himself sets out to accomplish each day - to never have to take prescription medications for chronic diseases like high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes.

The method he's using to stay healthy? Committing to and making micro-steps of forward progress in terms of a well-balanced diet and exercise! 

Back in 2016, Pat established All day i eat like a shark (blog) to share his love for healthy cooking and travel.

Being impacted by the books he had read, he gradually changed his diet to eat less meat. He also decided in 2018, to write his own book on Japanese tofu - Tofu Ryouri - Simple Japanese Tofu Recipes to Cook Healthier at Home. This was his way of helping others discover the wonderful world of Japanese tofu which was also a reflection of the changes he made in his diet.

Pat continues to regularly create videos and share his love of Japanese cuisine through his blog and Youtube channel. He began to focus on video to help demystify Japanese food and make it simple and more accessible for home cooks and foodies to recreate in their own kitchen. 

The one thing that was missing?

A community.

And so the Japanese Cooking Club was born! 

He enjoys bringing people of different backgrounds together with food. And he believes that when together, we can all learn something from each other.

So this Cooking Club isn't so much just about showing people a new way of cooking Japanese food, but also having a good time and a safe space where like-minded people can go to for support and connect with each other.

The Japanese Cooking club is one way that he helps to empower people to take more control and responsibility for their lives, while also combining two of his passions - food and helping people learn, grow and ensure their longevity!
