Udon noodles are made from wheat flour, which is mixed with salt and water into a lump of dough.
Udon is a typical Japanese noodle as well as Japanese noodles. It is a very simple noodle made from salt and flour and water.
Knead the dough and stepping on your feet. It is very fun. And I will also teach you how to make Japanese soup stock with seasonal tempura.
It is a lot of fun. You can also experience Japanese hospitality not elsewhere. I will write your name in kanji. I am looking forward to seeing you.



About Host

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ (12)

I like traveling and went to different countries in 20 countries.
Poland (my favorite.) Czech. France. Spain. Austria. NY .. Dominic. Thailand. Vietnam. Taiwan. Korea etc.
I truly traveled to various countries. The best memories there were exchanges and meals with the local people.
I would like people from abroad who are from abroad in Japan to ask for foreigners from Japan.
I began to think that I would like to exchange with local Japanese people through cooking. Mukojima is not famous for foreigners.
you can learn about Japan Nearby is a temple from the Edo period. There are marks of historic sites, and the live geisha go and go.
I wanted to know old old Japan, I borrowed a studio here.. We will pick you up at the station so please do not hesitate to contact us.

We really enjoyed the whole traditional experience from the first meet up to the final goodbyes. Our host, Masako-san, was very lovely and generous. We love the udon and tempura making too! We didn't know udon was traditionally made that way. The traditional matcha drinking was an eye opening experience as well. All in all a very enjoyable experience. Will definitely go back again!

I visited Tokyo many times.  I always want to attend a cooking class in a Japan local residence so that not only I can learn how to make Japanese dishes but also I can learn the Japanese culture.  Thanks “airKitchen” for making my dream comes true! I like the service of airKitchen team as they replied to my email enquiry promptly so I could decide which course to take. The host Masako-san provided great hospitality and made me feel like home.  I enjoyed doing hands-on udon and tempura making, especially the traditional way in making udon! I also enjoyed sitting down and eating our finished products together.  A great sharing time, just like having a gathering in a friend’s home! This is truly an enjoyable and memorable experience!  I am really looking forward to my next trip to Japan and my next cooking lesson with airKitchen.

Masako is a typical Japanese lady who will teach you Japanese food the way it is done. I sign up for udon but she also teach tempura and egg omelette while waiting for the udon dough. Making udon was fun as we need to use our foot to step on it (of course we use plastic to cover). Masako makes me feel cooking is easy and would recommend anyone interested in learning.

Me and Daniele are cooking enthusiasts and we love Japanese cuisine. Since our attempts to try to reproduce in Italy the delicious japanese meals have not been very successful, we decided to have an authentic japanese experience and searching online we have found the Airkitchen website. Since we are vegetarian, we wrote them to ask for an advice and they put us in contact with Masako to arrange a vegetarian cooking session. We arrived at the station where she was there to collect us. We arrived at Masako house that is in a quiet and charming neighbourhood and we started right away to create the base for the udon. We have learned a lot of cooking secrets while having tons of fun! I totally recommend this experience, we cooked udon, tempura, omelette and had a small tea ceremony. Masako also wrote our names in Hiragana and Kanji on a beautiful fan!

I’ve cooked Japanese food before in my home and have visited Japan many times before. But in my most recent trip I have decided to do something different, which is to do an authentic Japanese cooking lesson.
I did a comprehensive google search and nothing was really meeting what I wanted to cook or no host was available last minute.
That was until I found out about airkitchen. I found a course that I wanted to take, and was able to book it for the very next day!
The communication I received by the head office and the host cook was fantastic, replies in a timely manner and the English was superb!
Overall the cooking experience was something I’ll never forget, photos were provided to me of the lesson, and I was provided with great gifts also!
This is someone I highly recommend to anyone, whether you’re in Japan for short or long stay. The lessons can fit in with any schedule.
5 out of 5!
Thank you again,

Me and a friend took an Udon noodle making class with Masako and it was the best experience! I can highly recommend this to anyone who is in Japan! First, the food was AMAZING! Second, Masako was really flexible with me being a VEGETARIAN! She had a great alternative for the broth (w/o any fish or meat) :-) Also, we ended up making not only the traditional Udon noodles, but also tempura! Thank you, Masako, for making this a wonderful event :)

My friend and I had a great class with Masako. She welcomed us in her wonderful typical Japanese-style apartment. We were really impressed by her cooking skills and knowledge of Japanese cuisine. She taught us the right technique for every dish that we made. It was really interesting to see how many little details make up the taste of these traditional Japanese dishes. Cooking udon from scratch was definitely a blast ! The atmosphere of the lesson was very pleasant : Masako was a very thoughtful host and teacher. She was also full of energy and curious, so we had the nicest talk with her. On top of that, she is a woman of many talents, and we got to leave with personalized gifts (thank you so much for that !). All in all, we had a lovely morning and we definitely recommend to live this experience.
