About Hiro Sensei

Hiro Sensei was born in Shiga, just a few minutes away from Kyoto, Japan in a village surrounded by mountains and the biggest lake in Japan. Her ancestors used to run a Ryokan (Japanese hotel), and she aims to continue the tradition of giving Omotenashi (Japanese hospitality). Taught to cook traditional Japanese food by her grandma and great-grandma, and sweets by her mother, she moved to Australia in 2012 and started to focus on health. As she missed traditional Japanese food, she started cooking old family recipes. Her goal is to make people happy and healthy through Japanese food! Hiro holds a Certificate of Natural Food Coordinator.
