"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.

"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.

"you are getting the essence of Japan!"


At present, I have the good fortune of living in Japan for an extended time before returning back to the United States. When I have to return, I wanted to bring back more than a trinket or a souvenir from Japan. I sought to bring a cultural skill back to the States, something authentically Japanese in both technique and mindset. I wanted to share the spirit of Japan with my friends. airKitchen gives me this.

Because it is an offshoot of AirBnB, I was already familiar with its easy-to-use platform and could trust its safety for payment and a quality experience. Through airKitchen, I am able to have an authentic Japanese cooking class in a Japanese home. Because I’ve taken several classes, I am also introduced to different areas of Tokyo and receive a local’s perspective of the area. One hostess even took me shopping so that I could navigate the wonderful world of Japanese ingredients with her help. It was like having my own personal tour guide!

Each cooking class is different and teaches me something new about the beautiful culture that is Japan. When I cooked with Yuki, I learned proper place settings for our delicious chicken yakatori, kiriboshi, wheat bran pickles and miso soup made from homemade dashi that we created. Oishi! As an educator, because I was in her home, I was also interested to see the child development toys and books for her adorable son.

For Naoko’s cooking class, I learned the intricate method of the Japanese egg omelet (is that what is is?). I did not roll it correctly, but Naoko demonstrated the art of this technique patiently. I feel confident that when I practice this, I will be successful. Naoko also introduced me to Japanese cooking staples; I was delighted to learn about Naoko’s homemade miso paste and soy sauce that has been brewing for over two years!

Taking cooking classes through the airKitchen website gives a wide array of the healthy and delicious cooking of Japan. Clean cooking is important to me. These cooking classes allow me to bring this beneficial nutrition home to my family. By booking with airKitchen, you are getting so much more than a cooking class….you are getting the essence of Japan!

Yoshie has been a wonderful host and teacher to me. I was very glad to have found her to teach me bento-making that rainy day. The lesson is not very tough and easy to understand. Also, i enjoyed my time conversing with Yoshie during the lesson and have many nice memories to bring home with me. A highly recommended experience to any travellers to Japan!

★★★★★ Helene, Sweden
We loved going to visit Nahoko. It was quick to get there by subway and easy to find the way to her apartment. Making the type of sushi we did was very easy and we appreciated especially to learn how to make great sushi rice. We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to meet with Nahoko and her husband. We had a a good time taking about the differences in our cultures and our lives. A special thanks for making a cake since it was Alex and mine birthday!

★★★★★ Brock, Hong Kong
Very friendly host. Had lots of fun making delicious ramen and gyoza and enjoyed eating them even more!

★★★★★ Ashleigh, United States of America
The cooking class was excellent. It was traditional Japanese cooking. The instruction was clear and the atmosphere was relaxing. The baby was beyond cute too! Thank you very much Yuki! I hope to attend another class in the future! Best, Ashleigh

★★★★★ Johanna, United States of America
Best vegan bento class in Tokyo! ♥ Had a wonderful time with Yoshie! She is so warm, friendly and accommodating and really made an effort to make me the happiest bento box eater in Tokyo! ^‿^ She listened to all my requests and catered for me so well even though I am strictly vegan, gluten-free, asked for brown rice instead of white and also don’t eat sugar (all of which is really hard to find in Japan!). As you can tell by the pictures she is really knowledgeable in kawaii bentos and the result was SO cute! And tasty! ^‿^ Additionally Yoshie really is the best host and it was equally nice to just sit and chat with her because she is so kind! For vegans and vegetarians this is a must! Though I recommend EVERYONE to go! Definitely the highlight of my Tokyo trip! ♥

★★★★★ Rosmala, Indonesia
It was a fun class! Yoshie-san taught me a lot of things, not only about the cooking but also about japanese culture. I thought it will be difficult to make character bento, but Yoshie-san make an easy tutorial so I can make it with an easy way. I really recommend this class for everyone who interested in making character bento in an easy ways and fun atmosphere.

★★★★★ Youssef, France
Nahoko is a very welcoming lady. the lessons are clear and precise, I had taken a course of Nishi-sushi. it was very complete and I managed to remake them in France. After the class we chatted and had the chance to taste the excellent miso soup and a very good chocolate dessert. thank you to Nahoko for this moment of exception

★★★★★ Joanna, United States of America
Thanks Yoshie for the wonderful experience! We had so much fun today making the Pikachu bento. Our daughter Tori left there feeling super happy she won’t stop talking about it. :-) Thank you so much for being so considerate for making the day extra special for her.

★★★★★ Stella, Singapore
Enjoy the cooking & a great experience. Masako San is a great host, she shared her homemade Tamagoyaki recipe which she had it since young. Her Udon & tempura are easy to prepare too. Always answer & explain to questions patiently.

★★★★★ Mari, Finland
Thank you Yuki-san for a great ramen cooking lesson!

★★★★★ Bizhan, United Kingdom

★★★★★ Paul, Switzerland
We went to Yumiko's course the 3 of us, me, my wife and my son (11) and we had a truly delicious experience ! Yumiko's knowledge of Japanese culture goes beyond the framework of cooking and we enjoyed her company a lot.

★★★★★ Noa, Israel

★★★★★ Yvonne, Australia
Mai was an absolutely lovely host, even picking us up from the train station. The wagashi session was very practical and we managed to produce delicious wagashi and were able to take some home. Mai gave us a detailed recipe and I am looking forward to making them at home soon. :) Thank you again, Mai!

★★★★★ Andy Cook , United States of America

★★★★★ WAI , Hong Kong
Great hospitality and great fun! Thanks so much!

★★★★★ Nadim, United Kingdom
Thank you Rina for your great class. The children enjoyed it a lot!

★★★★★ Huei, United States of America
Yoko is an incredible culinary alchemist and human being. Besides being a gracious and thoughtful host, she has the kind of cooking skills that make you wish she would open a restaurant. Thank you for guiding me in the fine art of Shojin ryori- I learned so much, and had an amazing time getting to know the whole family as well. ありがとございます!!

★★★★★ Chanel , Australia
Rina was so lovely ! Both my partner and I LOVED the class. Rina was also great and catering to my dietary needs and finding alternative ingredients / flavors to add. I can't wait to get home and work on my gyoza skills. Rina is lovely to speak too and we felt so welcome in her home. Highly recommend this class!

★★★★★ Nitzan, Israel
We’ve had a nice experience with Nahoko. She is very excited with her cooking class and gives great explanation. Very nice experience, although a bit far away from Tokyo’s center and takes most of the day because of it

★★★★★ Funda, United States of America
Hideki was the most amazing teacher and showed us how to make a real ramen and gyoza. Him and wife were so lovely and welcoming, my daughter and I felt like we were cooking with family. A must do while you are in Tokyo.

★★★★★ Robert, United States of America
Yoko is very knowledgeable about what she is teaching and is adept at presenting the techniques and ingredients that are showcased. Meals should be made from scratch, is her philosophy and she backs that up by maintaining an elaborate seasonal garden located off site on a plot of land that she has access to. My class included produce from her garden. She also makes her own miso, oshinko, umeboshi etc to be used as ingredients. Yoko is a very technical cook and can answer any question you can throw at her. I am confident that I can reproduce the food again from my class when I get back to my home country because she made sure I learned it by doing it. Yoko speaks fluent English and is a very good communicator, both written and spoken. Her husband and daughter were present and are all a wonderful family. When the class ended and we enjoyed the fruits of our labor, we had a fun time getting to know each other. I give Yoko Takahashi my highest recommendation, the inspiration she will give you can not be found on a YouTube video.

★★★★★ Shane, United States of America
Nahoko is a wonderfully warm and genuine host. I felt welcomed into her home the moment I stepped in. And learning her personal recipes were a real treat. I never thought that I would have been able to make tasty, restaurant quality ramen with a homemade feel like I did when I was there. Nahoko can speak English and Japanese , which is a real help for tourists who want to jump in to an authentic Japanese home and learn as much as possible. Her instructions are easy to follow for a beginner , but not too basic for a more advanced student. Take her class, you’ll be surprised at what’s you can do.

★★★★★ Cecilia Onorati, Germany
Our cooking experience with Emi was amazing, we had fun and learnt some typical local recipes ... very tasty!! Emi is a very nice and competent cook!! We had a lot of fun :)

★★★★★ Brandon, United States of America
Wow!! Hideki blew my mind with his excellent ramen skills! He is a pro that is great at speaking English and super friendly too. He will teach you everything you want to know, and the food at the end is worth all the work!! Please book Hideki if you are in the Tokyo area and want an unique Japanese experience with a friendly teacher and new friend!

★★★★★ Alicia Rohe, Germany
Our cooking class with Nahoko was one of the most valuable experience in Japan. Finally we met a local person, learned more about the japanese lifestyle and their culture. Even though we were late, the class took place and after it she brought us to a local super market to buy some ingredients we used for cooking. Nahoko is polite, funny and so welcoming that I can just highly recommend to take her class. You will learn to cook ramen in the traditional way with natural ingredients. The food tasted amazing and we enjoyed cooking, eating together and having conversations a lot. Thank you so much Nahoko for this amazing day and hope to see each other again one day!!

★★★★★ Hilla , Israel
Nahoko gives it all to this class, she's a fascinating individual, very friendly and caring and has great enthusiasm for this class. This experience became one of my top experiences in Japan, of a month of traveling. I hope I'll get the chance to host Nohoko in my kitchen in Israel one day.

★★★★★ Jeff, United States of America
Sato was amazing! He is funny but incredibly passionate about his food, his family history, and his culture and it all shows in his class. The food was excellent and I can't wait to try making it at home. If you have the chance to take his class, I highly recommend it! Arigatou gozaimashita Sato-sensei!

★★★★★ Katelyn, United States of America

Our japanese cooking class was stupendous!!! We couldn’t happier about the food, the experiende, and of course, about Yumi. She is so knowledgeable and is such a patient teacher. We learned a great deal during the lunch class. She picked us up at the right location and took her time during the class to make sure we grasped the concepts about the dishes we cooked. At the end, we had an amazing lunch and participated in a quick tea ceremony. Totally worth it!! Recomend 100%

It was a pleasure to meet Yoko and her family. My cooking experience was fun and informative. She prepared everything before hand so that I am able to enjoy as much as possible. Mei-chan was so cute and she helped me during the process. At the end, I sat down together with the family for the meal I cooked. It felt so heart-warming. My trip was truly memorable. Hope to see them soon again and strongly recommend.

★★★★★ Yuko, Japan
We really enjoyed Junko's cooking class. Junko welcomed us with open arms. We learned not only how to cook Japanese dumplings but also Japanese culture from her.

Masako is amazing, she helped us make Udon, Tempura and Tamagoyaki, all from scratch. She let us try other food and drink that she had made herself, and made fans with our names on in calligraphy. We were late but she was very accommodating, and we didn't feel rushed at all. If we ever come back to Japan, we would definitely book another of Masako's classes.

★★★★★ Alex, United States of America
Our class with Emi was one of the highlights of our trip to Tokyo. We had a wonderful experience learning about and preparing sushi, having interesting conversations with our fellow classmates while eating and drinking the delicious results of our practice. My shrimp cutting skills might still need some work but this class should not be missed if you're spending some time in Tokyo and looking for a next-level experience.

Sayaka's home is beautiful. Today's menu was fried chicken, I wholeheartedly recommend this class. Everything we made was delicious. She even asked me how I liked my tofu and later showed me what ingredients to buy at the supermarket so I could make miso soup at home. I LOVE MISO SOUP :) Also, she speaks really great English. We had a lot of fun talking about travel and culture, as well! It was all-around fantastic.

★★★★★ Elizabeth, United States of America
I was hesitant to book as I was by myself in Japan for a week for work, but it was a great experience! Nobody else signed up at the time so Masako explained all the steps, showed me how to do it, and had me make everything. She's very friendly and speaks English, so I highly recommend you sign up for the class, it was a lot of fun! I bought some ingredients to take home and make it for my family.

★★★★★ Ashlee, New Zealand
Keiko’s kitchen is based out on the suburbs of Japan so it was a cool experience going to a different part of Tokyo that is much more peaceful and reserved. Keiko has great English skills and is easy to understand. She teaches in a very easy manner and the sushi we made ended up being super declioius! Would highly recommend her!!!!

★★★★★ Tomoaki, Japan
My cooking experience at modern woman cooking school was great. At first, I was nervous about English, communicating and cooking. However, that was all needless fear. I absolutely enjoyed cooking experience in Thailand atmosphere.

★★★★★ Samm Diep, United States of America
Yoshie was absolutely delightful! Her English was very good. The boxes we made were super cute and delicious. Strongly recommend as a beginner bento making course for anyone who is interested!

★★★★★ Christian, Norway
Great! Lovely and educational!

★★★★★ Amal Yasa, Singapore
Amazing experience! I strongly recommend everyone who visit Japan to attend Yumi-chan class! Learn how to make Japanese food and you will be thrilled to experience the real deal of Japan. If only I found Yumi's class earlier, I would bring all my friends and family to attend her class. She is so friendly, speak good English and also very helpful in meeting our dietary needs. For those who need to have halal or vegetarian, Yumi can do it too! Spread the word. Attend her class and you know what I mean! Gambate ne!

Hi Masako, thanks for letting me book last minute for a one on one lesson for Tamagoyaki, Udon and Tempura. It was great learning the little tricks to make these classic simple dishes taste great. Also for the little japanese sayings/words etc such as Mottainai. Thanks again for a great class, will recommend to all.

★★★★★ Moni and Michael , Australia
Yuki was a fantastic teacher and it really was an AMAZING lesson! Yukis' english was fantastic and the techniques she showed us to make traditional Ramen broth were so interesting and something we have taken home with us.. This experience was something we never could have had at a commercial cooking lesson and was so much better because of the unique culture and one on one interaction - It was like cooking with a friend.. HIGHLY recommend!

★★★★★ Helena, Spain
The cooking class with Junko was great! The tools and ingredients were all ready and she teaches hands on thus you get to practice. At the end we enjoyed our meal together and had a very enjoyable lunch. I really recommend taking a class with her!

Our cooking experience with Emi was amazing! We arrived early and she was extremely hospitable. Her kitchen was spacious and clean, and Emi spoke English almost perfectly. She was thorough in explanations and processes, and took her time. The experience was amazing as we were not rushed, and as a result the food was great! The sake paired with it was also perfect. Highly recommend this as a must do for anyone in Tokyo - Josh & Asha

★★★★★ Keeton, United States of America
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful cooking experience with Masako! She was a great host. All her recipes were delicious, some of which were family recipes. We visited Japan over the New Year period and Masako took the time to explain the culture behind New Years symbols and activities. We made more food than we could eat and she helped us to package leftover- extremely thoughtful. She also sent us off with handmade calligraphy of our names in Japanese characters — so cool! We were very thankful and would highly recommend this cooking experience!

★★★★★ Lani, Singapore

Hi Takako, we had a great time today, starting from the walk through the park and to your lovely home. We were impressed by how prepared you were and your encouragement through the whole process. We enjoy cooking proper Japanese gyozas along with a wonderful salad dressing for a salad and miso soup. The process was well explained and we are now confident that with a bit of practice we will be making gyozas in our own home as good as you do. We are looking forward to book ourselves in another cooking class next time we are back in Tokyo. Thanks for everything, it was so great to meet you.

★★★★★ Linda Wong, Hong Kong

★★★★★ Jose René , Mexico

★★★★★ Shyam Howlin, Australia
Whilst visiting Japan, from Australia, last week Yoko welcomed my husband and I into her home to prepare a scrumptious organic vegan Japanese meal. Yoko is great at instructing and with her careful guidance we prepared a delicious meal of Miso, goma dofu, steamed veg with sauce and vegetable tempura. I am confident we can replicate this at home. We then sat down to eat with Yoko, her husband Kosuke and young daughter Mei. A privilege to join a Japanese family at their table. So much more than just a cooking class. Yoko and family, thank you. Kind Regards Shyam and Steve

★★★★★ Anna Söderlind, Sweden
Akanes cooking class was amazing! She taught us how to cook daily Japanese food. To share the meal with her and her family was a great was to get a better understanding of the daily life in Japan. Highly recommend this cooking class!

★★★★★ Christopher Getts, United States of America
Everything was great

★★★★★ Simone, Italy
The course was extremely pleasant and clear to understand. It was just the two of us with Emi, so we had the chance to help in preparing almost everything. Emi was a genuine, enjoyable chef and we also had time to talk together and learn something about Japanese habits. The food was great and, in addition to Teriyaki Chicken, we also learnt to cook Miso soup. Surely recommended!

★★★★★ Gabriella Pasztor, Australia
Mikako was a great host. She gave us a printed copy of the recipes so we could take them home. Mikakos home was clean and welcoming, it was nice to be there. The food was absolutely amazing, so delicious! Highly recommend cooking with Mikako.

★★★★★ Tim Handfield, Australia
We had such a great experience with Yoko san! We learnt so much - not only how to cook a delicious Shojin Ryori style meal, but also details on the traditional preparation of miso and Japanese home cooking in general. We share her enthusiasm for gardening and growing organic vegetables and were very interested discussing gardening with her. It was also lovely to meet her very kind family, and we felt welcomed as soon as we met them. We would recommend her to anyone who wants to learn about Japanese cooking, regardless of whether they are vegan. Thank you Yoko san!

★★★★★ Arie , Israel
Thank you so much for a great and traditional hospitality. Great suchi class. I learbec a lot

★★★★★ Laine & Erwann, America
We had an amazing time making sushi!! It was a very cool experience for us. Mikako's class is perfect for beginners. Her kitchen was immaculately clean, her class was very well organized, and she was a delightful teacher. We really enjoyed learning something new, and having a meal with Mikako. It is a great memory from our honeymoon :) We were so glad she had the instructions printed out to take with us, because when we got home to the US we made some more sushi using her recipe! We highly recommend her class!

★★★★★ Jessica , America
My friend and I had a kyaraben lesson with Yoshie-san. We spent a lovely and wonderful moment with her. We did a very cute Totoro lunch box, I was so pride of me to able to do it. It was easy to communicate with her, so I would recommend her.

★★★★★ Erin Freese, America
The cooking class was very informative and a great way to spend an afternoon in Tokyo! In addition to learning how to make gyozas and eating a delicious home cooked meal, I was able to learn about Japanese life from the host Yukari. I recommend this class to anyone who loves gyozas, is interested in learning more about Japanese culture or has a free afternoon to spare!

★★★★★ Aurélie, France
We spent a wonderful time with Yoshie-san. She taught us how make a (cute) Totoro bento. Nothing difficult so even a child can participate. Also, it was easy to communicate with her before and during the cooking class, so never lost.

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.

★★★★★ Fatou, France
As someone who is used to cooking vegetarian food, I was really looking forward to learning more about tofu cuisine. My friend and I were not disappointed.We had a great cooking class with Kanami. After choosing the ingredients in the supermarket, we had the course in her modern yet lovely apartment. We learned to cook many receipes with tofu (and even how to actually make tofu !!). Kanami was kind enough to print out the receipes in English and French, so that we could easily reproduce them while at home. On top of that, she spoke English very well and we enjoyed chatting with her on different subjects. Through the discussion we learned more about life in Tokyo, and Japan in general. Thank you Kanami and Airkitchen team for the delightful morning !

★★★★★ Maz and Martin, Australia
What an incredibly valuable and unique experience!! My partner and I spent the afternoon in Naomi's home preparing sushi and cooking teriyaki chicken and vegetables. We also learnt new things about bonito, wasabi and sake! Naomi was warm and friendly as well as patient and knowledgeable about home cooking and ingredients. Her English is perfect as well. I would like to recommend Naomi and Air Kitchen to everyone and I'd like to say a huge thank you to Naomi, for your kindness and for giving us an unforgettable experience in Japan.

Hiroko, our cook was a very nice lady who can cook lovely Japanese meals. She showed us how to make Miso soup, Eggrole and fried chicken. It all tasted lovely and it was great to be in a Japanese household and kitchen. There was a young woman who translated, so that was nice. The distance whitin Fukuoka to her house in the outskirts is however a bit far. Some 35 minutes with the train from the center of Fukuoka to Asakuragaido Station. When its easy for you to travel by Japanese railroad it is good to do. Overall experiance: Very nice. Nice and friendly lady with good tradional Japanese cooking skills, bit difficult to understand eachother without the translator and a bit far from the center.

It was fun making the lunch box with friends and Yoshie san. Good to learn the basic yet very useful skills in the kitchen!

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 :)

★★★★★ Zhihang, Chinese
Thank you very much. I was really engaged into this activity, experiencing the making process of the traditional Japanese cuisine and I do think it is not just Japanese food but more like an artistic work, which means I have to be more patient than I previously thought, but anyway, I do think it was an excellent experience. The oolong tea tasted extremely delicious as well as the "Hanbagu". And all the vegetable we ate were just picked off from Fumie san's yard. It was so fresh that I've never had before. Also, I did enjoy talking with you about so many different culture. Thank you very much for picking me up from the station and sending me back. If possible, I will participate in this cooking lesson again and recommend to my friend as well.

★★★★★ Chin, Malaysia
Thank you so much for hosting us! It has been a memorable experience for my friends and I. It was a great cultural learning experience for me to be able to visit a Japanese house and learn cooking from my host. I also learn more about Japanese culture and lifestyle through our communication with the host. Our host are so friendly and hospitable. We were able to learn Yakuzen cooking and enjoy our meal in a relaxing manner. Since the location of my host is quite near to the seaside, my host dropped us at the beach after the cooking session and we were able to enjoy the beautiful scenery at Mihama Onoura. Will definitely recommend my friends to give it a try!

★★★★★ Wang, Chinese

It was a fantastic experience, we were introduced to how to prepare a bento and we did it. We could ask questions about kitchen techniques, ingredients, but also local traditions. It was our first bento experience and we will continue it at home. In addition, at the end of class the host showed us around the local store and explain about products. We can really recommend a lesson to others. I completly agree that this kind of experience let us better understand other culture, kitchen thet paper-based guides will never let. AirKitchen is very good solution and I recommend to expand it.

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,
Daniel

Ms. Mikako is a great sushi instructor and a wonderful host! I really enjoyed the time I spent with her. She didn’t only teach how to make sushi, but also showed me the neighborhood she lives in and specially the public library because she already knew I’m librarian. She gave me some presents and many tips about Tokyo, where I should visit and buy souvenirs. It was the best experience I’ve had in Tokyo and I’m looking forward to seeing her again!

I told about your website to everyone I met in Tokyo and also the Hotel staff. I hope more people use your wonderful service. Thank you so much for your great initiative, easy course booking and your best instructors!

Our 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.

Our cooking 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, she was happy to share about the nice places of Tokyo to visit.  In short, Michiko is an awesome host.

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.

★★★★★ Caroline, Hong Kong
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.

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!

Even I've been in Japan for 5 years, it's still difficult having chance to experience Japanese home food. Thanks to my friend, I could have opportunity to participate this. Every dishes were so delicious ans also easy to learn how to make. Also, Aki-san was so nice and friendly, so that I could have comfortable and pleasurable time there. Watching Kendo after the cooking course(I could have chance thanks to Aki-san) was also very interesting.

Went here with two of my friends earlier. The host is a wonderful cooking teacher who can also explain the origins of the food and the ingredients. She is very warm and friendly and for anyone who even remotely enjoys Japanese cuisine, I would most certainly recommend this.

Our cooking lesson with airKitchen and Akiko-San was a fantastic experience. Being invited by a Japanese local to their home and learning how to cook Japanese dishes, including some of Nagoya’s specialities, made it possible for us to take a deep look inside the Japanese food culture and into how Japanese live and think about various topics. Our host Akiko-san taught us how to prepare many delicious dishes: “Tebasaki” (Nagoya’s local speciality, deep fried chicken wings), “Shrimp Tempura”, “Doteni” (Red miso stew) and Red miso soup. We also learned how great Japanese hospitality is. What made our airKitchen cooking experience especially great was that everything was arranged to go very smoothly. Our host even picked us up from the station and brought us back to there, and had already bought all needed ingredients for our dishes. As the AirKitchen team was also very helpful and easy to contact, nothing could go wrong! I would love to enjoy such a great cooking session again soon. Thank you very much!

I had really a great time. As a guy who wants to experience Japan from the inside, this was a very good opportunity for me. Our host was very kind, and her home was filled with small and beautiful Japanese details. I appreciated that, it gives a great idea of the everyday life in Japan. The best part was of course the food. I loved that for the first time I did not only ate some delicious Japanese food, but I also got to make it in a traditional Japanese kitchen, that was some real Japan seen from a first person perspective. I am very happy that I had the opportunity to experience this, and I would definitely recommend it.

Our cooking experience with Masako was excellent! She picked us up from the train station and took us to the kitchen. She explained what everything is and showed us clear instructions on how to prepare our meal! She was a lovely host and I would recommend her cooking class to anyone! Thanks Masako for a great afternoon and a delicious meal - we loved it!
