[ What is " Onigirazu " ? ]
You know Japanese rice boll called “ONIGIRI” means “to grip and shape rice with both hands.” Against it “ONIGIRAZU” means “not to grip.“ It’s not only easy to make but also looks very attractively.
We'll make it from cooking some of the ingredients, like an Ganmodoki.

[ About fun experiment about DASHI & UMAMI ]
We'll compare to drink some dashi soups for learning the way of thinking about Japanese cuisine.
For vegan and vegetarian(if you want), I prepare Shojin-dashi.

"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.

Once the capital of Japan, this land-locked city is today one of the largest cities in all of Japan, and capital of the Kyoto prefecture. This historical legacy has left the city with an abundance of landmarks ranging from old pagodas to castles and everything in between. Among other things, Kyoto has an important role to play in Japan, when it comes to industry, commerce, finance and culture.
Also important to add here is that Kyoto is today considered one of the most important tourist destinations in all of Japan, attracting countless tourists from across the world.

So if you happen to be visiting this part of Japan, know that you are spoiled for choice in these Kyoto cooking classes, if you ever want to learn about its cooking.
