I'm planning a food-centric vacation to Japan (probably focusing on Tokyo) this summer. One thing that I'd like to do is get some cooking instruction from a yakitori chef. I'm addicted to the stuff...so much so that I have my own konro (yakitori grill -- yes, using binchotan charcoal) at home and make yakitori any chance I get (my kids LOVE the stuff). I have researched the cooking schools in Tokyo -- but none of them offer real yakitori instruction using charcoal grill. Anyone know of a yakitori chef who might be interested in providing instruction?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions and help.
