Mikako’s class ticked all the boxes. She’s very patient, enthusiastic and happy to answer any questions we had. And the food we made was delicious!
Michael, United States of America★★★★★
Mikako was a pleasure to learn from! I appreciate her welcoming me into her home and sharing her knowledge. She was communicative and explained the process of making sushi very clearly. I was able to make beautiful looking nigiri in the end. She covered how to prepare the rice and a simple process for making the sushi itself. We didn't cover how to cut fish and I'd recommend buying pre-cut sushi if making nigiri from home. She provided written instructions that I was able to take home and will be useful for making sushi in the future! I hope to replicate her lessons at home soon! Highly recommend others to take her class!
Thomas, United States of America★★★★★
Thank you Mikako for a fun and entertaining class. We will apply your teaching when we’ll get home.
Adila, United States of America★★★★★

Inma Sánchez, Spain★★★★★
The cooking class with Mikako was an unforgettable experience. Mikako is the perfect host. She explained us clearly how to prepare sushi and misho soup and we were able to prepare it thanks to her advices and help. She is very friendly and speaks English very well, so we could talk about the ingredients, Japanese and Spanish cuisine and customs of both countries. She opened us the door of her house so this type of experience allows you to learn to cook and also to deepen the Japanese culture and customs. I will recommend Airkitchen to my friends traveling to Japan Thank you Mikako.
Natalia, United States of America★★★★★
I had such an amazing time taking Mikako’s class! She was so sweet and her home was beautiful and clean as well. She worked with me to make the recipe perfectly (even though it took awhile for me to figure out how to roll the sushi correctly!), and the food we made was delicious. I’m definitely going to be taking her class again!

Mikako is the best! Very thorough, very informative. She went above and beyond. Made us feel very welcomed. I recommend trying any of her classes when in Tokyo.

My cooking experience with Mikako was fun and marvelous. She is very friendly and warm. The handout was helpful and she explain all steps and tricks in detail. I'm confident that I can make these Sushi when I get back to US. I hope Mikako can offer other Japanese cooking class soon.
Bizhan, United Kingdom★★★★★
Mikako's sushi class was fantastic. Personal, enjoyable and tasty! She was a good teacher, and her husband Rio was with us to. They both spoke great English so I was able to talk to them about all sorts of things, and learned lots about Japan. The sushi was delicious, highly recommend.
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.
Laine & Erwann, United States of 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!

Dear Mikako, It was friendly, attentive, comfortable and very useful your lessons of sushi making in July. I learned much what I expected. Thanks a lot. Sincerely yours Thinh
We had a great time! It was very cosy in your beautifull home and you had a very calm and good way of explaining how to make sushi properly! You also helped us with all of our questions. Thank you very much for this pleasant lunchtime and good luck!

Anne, United States of America★★★★★
Hi Mikako! We had such a wonderful time in your sushi class. Thank you for making it special. We are excited to try making some sushi ourselves. Thanks again!
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!
