  • Tempura

    Tempura

    Tempura (天ぷら) is a classical Portuguese dish brought to and popularized by Japan, consisting of seafood or vegetables that have been battered and deep fried. Tempura is a typical home-style cooking in Japan. It is often referred to as a representative dish to Japan. Although there are various theories, it is said that Tokugawa Ieyasu, the general of the Edo period, liked tempura so much that he allegedly died from eating too much.

  • Udon

    Udon

    Udon (うどん) is a type of thick wheat flour noodle. It is similar to Italian pasta, but much thicker. It has been eaten all over Japan as an easy-to-eat popular meal, and a substitute meal for rice dishes. Udon is often served hot as a noodle soup in its simplest form, as "kake udon", in a mildly flavoured broth called kakejiru, which is made of dashi, soy sauce, and mirin. The flavor of broth and topping vary from region to region.

  • Green Tea

    Green Tea

    The astringent constituent in Japanese tea is a type of polyphenol called catechin. Japan has done a great deal with the humble tea leaf. For example some benefits of the catechin in the tea leaf can lower cholesterol in some cases. Roasted over charcoal at a high temperature and grown under shade for at least 20 days are one of the examples. The most popular Japanese tea might be ryokucha. Depending on the timing of picking the leaves, the grade, the price can be noticeably different.

Cooking Class Information

We will cook Hand made udon, we are preparing for white wheat noodle (Udon) with seasonal vegetables.
You learn how to make tempra and how to make stock sauce for udon.
When you master these recipes and serve your guests Udon at home, they must be astonished at the authentic Udon tastes.
Udon noodles are made from wheat flour, which is mixed with salt and water into a lump of dough.
Udon is a typical Japanese noodle as well as Japanese noodles. It is a very simple noodle made from salt and flour and water.
Knead the dough and stepping on your feet. It is very fun. And I will also teach you how to make Japanese soup stock with seasonal tempura.
It is a lot of fun. You can also experience Japanese hospitality not elsewhere. I will write your name in kanji. I am looking forward to seeing you.



About Host

★★★★★ (57)

I like traveling and went to different countries in 20 countries.
Poland (my favorite.) Czech. France. Spain. Austria. NY .. Dominic. Thailand. Vietnam. Taiwan. Korea etc.
I truly traveled to various countries. The best memories there were exchanges and meals with the local people.
I would like people from abroad who are from abroad in Japan to ask for foreigners from Japan.
I began to think that I would like to exchange with local Japanese people through cooking. Mukojima is not famous for foreigners.
you can learn about Japan Nearby is a temple from the Edo period. There are marks of historic sites, and the live geisha go and go.
I wanted to know old old Japan, I borrowed a studio here.. We will pick you up at the station so please do not hesitate to contact us.

Masako was great from beginning to end. She pick my sister and I up from the station. We started cooking and eating right away! It was really nice to see the Japanese culture through the making their food. It was the first time we have ever handmade udon and tempura. It was so easy once Masako showed us the way and so good fresh. We actyally had cold udon which was great for the hot weather! I would take Masako's class again if I visit Japan again!!

Masako was a fantastic host who was very hospitable and friendly to us. Not only did we learn how to cook udon, she also showed us how to make tempura and japanese style omelettes! She was even very accomodating to a friend who was vegetarian. Would definitely do this again, if not for the food, then for Masako.

Masako is an incredible woman! We had the absolute pleasure of working with Masako, a wonderful chef, while on our trip to Tokyo! We actually booked this cooking experience on the plane to Japan a day before we planned to take the class and Masako responded so quickly to us! She laid out the instructions to meet her very clearly and did the same while we cooked with her. The food was so delicious!! We also learned about different Japanese traditions as well as calligraphy! What an experience we'll never forget!!

Had a great time with Masako! Nice area conveniently located close to Asakusa area. She has a homey kitchen and loved making the dough for the noodles. She was eager to share her homemade pickles from her mother's garden and any tips on making other kinds of Japanese food. Thanks for being so accommodating and kind!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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 :)

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

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.

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!
