Yakuzen is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition.
I would like to serve “Yakuzen” dishes, which you can enjoy seafood and mountain vegetables in season grown locally. “Yakuzen" is a type of meal for dietary therapy based on Chinese tradition, and was originated more than 2000 years ago. Recently, Yakuzen is considered as a part of preventive medicine to treat pre-symptomatic disease. Based on the theory of Yin-Yang and the five elements, Yakuzen maintains the balance of physical body and mentality. I hope you enjoy cooking my original Yakuzen recipes, including Japanese seasonal ingredients.

If you have any question or dietary restriction, please contact me. I would be happy to customize the courses.

Experience the sophisticated Yakuzen courses and enjoy natural sourness, sweetness, bitterness, and saltiness derived from natural ingredients.

"To anyone considering using the AirKitchen service - do it"


To anyone considering using the AirKitchen service - do it. I absolutely loved my time with Nancy-san and and would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to have a real(ly wonderful) experience, with real(ly lovely) people, involving some real(ly delicious) local food. Especially as a Vegetarian person in Japan, this was an amazing opportunity to experience genuine Japanese food that also fit into my dietary restrictions. The Air Kitchen team and Nancy checked with me every step of the way as to what I could and could not have, and the end result was definitely one of the best meals I’ve had in Japan. We made an incredible variety of super tasty Tofu based dishes, including Yuba-Don, Shira-ae, Miso Soup, Miso Pickled Tofu, Stewed Fried Tofu and Vegetables, Home Made Tofu with Soy Milk... The list goes on. Despite being a terrible cook, Nancy was patient, and inspired me to showed me that even I could make a scrumptious and nutritious meal. I will definitely be using these recipes to feed myself and recreate the memories. Thank you to the team and Nancy for making it such a delicious, warm and lovely evening.

"We thank her very much for her time and wish her all the best future guests!"


Our cooking class experience was a great success and I would rate it 5. Our cooking class took place in Shibuya in a street easy to access. Our menu consisted of spinach with sesame, rice, teriyaki chicken and miso soup. Although it all sound very simple there is an art to it and we both learned some useful tricks for future dishes. We had a great time chatting while preparing simple yummy food that we will definitely be able to make again at home. Our host was interesting and kind. We discussed her city as she is a Tokyo native. We shared food stories of different countries and had a great time. We thank her very much for her time and wish her all the best future guests.

"Learned a lot of cooking secrets while having tons of fun!"


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 class session. 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 cooking class experience, we cooked udon, tempura, omelette and had a small tea ceremony.

"A great sharing time, just like having a gathering in a friend’s home!"


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.

"Our cooking class experience was marvelous!"


Our cooking class experience with Michi's Table was marvelous. Besides teaching us the expert techniques of tempura cooking, she also shared with us the history of the food we cooked. This exemplified her in-depth knowledge of Japanese cuisine. Her love for food art was also shown by the way she taught us how to set the table for the food, interwoven with beautiful tableware and cutlery sets. Aside to cooking class, she was happy to share about the nice places of Tokyo to visit. In short, Michiko is an awesome host.
