Shojin ryori is the traditional cuisine that was developed in Buddhist monasteries in Japan.
As it is made without meat, fish or other animal products, it can be enjoyed by vegans and vegetarians, but those who are not are also welcome.

・Tempura with seasonal vegetables
Very simple ingredients but there are a few tips to cook good Tempura.
Come to my kitchen and discover the secrets.
You’ll also learn how to make dipping sauce for Tempura.
After my lesson, you‘ll be able to cook truly good Tempura.
Enjoy a Tempura party with your family and friends when you come back to your home!

・Goma dofu(Sesame tofu)
Goma dofu is one of the most typical Shojin ryori dishes.
It looks like tofu but not made from soybeans or soy milk.
It is made from sesame, a broth of Kombu dashi or water and kuzu.
I learned the recipe of Goma dofu directly from a Buddhist monk.
Let’s cook a real Goma dofu together!

・Steamed or boiled seasonal vegetables with walnuts or sesame and soy sauce paste
It’s very simple and the good way to eat fresh vegetables.

・Miso soup
You’ll learn how to cook miso soup with a simple broth of Kombu dashi which would be suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
We'll use homemade miso to cook miso soup.

・Rice
The choice of white rice or brown rice.
If you prefer brown rice, please let me know in advance.
Taste a homemade Umeboshi(a salted plum) with rice.

"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.
