Let's make traditional Japanese udon noodles from flour taught by moms at home Contents
①Make udon noodles from flour
②Make tamagoyaki（Japaneses Omelette)
④Learn the basics of Japanese cooking dashi soup
※ Finally, I am a calligraphy teacher will write your name in kanji (please take it home as a souvenir)
Handmade udon and
Tempura. Dashi, the basic soup stock of Japanese cuisine. You will learn how to make Japanese omelets.
Once you master these recipes and serve udon at home, your guests will be amazed at the authentic taste of udon.
Udon is made by kneading wheat flour with salt and water to form a lump.
Udon is a typical Japanese noodle dish as well. It is a very simple noodle made from salt, flour, and water.
Kneading the dough and stamping it with your feet. It is very fun. And seasonal tempura. I also teach you how to make Japanese dashi.
It's very fun. You will also experience Japanese hospitality that you cannot experience anywhere else. I will write your name in kanji.
I look forward to meeting you.

I had an amazing time at Masako's cooking class. She and her team were the best. I learned A LOT about Japanese food and they made me feel genuinely welcome. I've always felt that the best way to learn about a cuisine is to take a cooking class. It's like looking under the cuisine's hood. This class was the perfect example of that. Thank you Masako!
Lay Theng, Singapore★★★★★
I really enjoyed learning hand-made udon, tempura and tamago yaki from Masako San. She was so warm, patient and friendly which totally put me at ease at the onset. The ingredients were fresh and her teaching method was simple and easy to pick up! I would definitely love going back to Japan and learn from her again!
Masako san is a great host! Thank you for the wonderful cooking lesson!

It was very cool. Great experience. Masako is very friendly and nice!
Michael, United States of America★★★★★
Learning how to make Udon with Masako was an absolute pleasure. She was communicative and helpful and I came out with beautiful looking Udon. In total we made udon, tempera, and an tamago roll. Things did feel a bit rushed and if possible the pacing should be slowed down a bit, though that may be hard with everything that is being made during this session. Masako sent me her recipe afterwards and I hope to replicate things at home once more! I would absolutely recommend others to learn from Masako!
Sophie Burgess, Australia★★★★★

Masako was a great host! She was good at explaining and demonstrating the steps, and also gave some history as well as personal anecdotes about each item that we cooked. We cooked more than enough food to enjoy. She wrote our names in Japanese on a fan as a souvenir, along with origami cranes, which was a nice touch.

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!!
WE had a great cooking session with Masako. She is a lovely person and we learnt a lot about Japanese Culture.
Fantastic experience! Our host was gracious, knowledgeable and patient. She adapted the menu to our preferences (which was a challenge given the family’s diverse tastes) and taught us skills well beyond today’s specific meal. I would return with pleasure and definitely recommend the experience to others. Thank you!

It was truly a wonderful cooking experience for me with Masako san today. It was so much fun. I learnt not only about cooking but also others skill such as food cutting, presentation as well as Japanese cultures. Masako san is a very kind and pleasant sensei indeed.

Ishara , United States of America★★★★★
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!!
Thank you Masako for your generosity in sharing all these helpful/useful cooking tips and sharing more about your culture and how you make Umeshu and Shoju. it's incredible knowledge sharing for us foreigners. despite the heavy rain, we definitely did have lots of fun cooking and speaking with you! thank you and I hope to go Japan again and learn more from you!
Masako-san is extremely kind and welcoming! She gave very clear instructions and we made some delicious food together. I highly recommend this course to everyone! どうもありがとうございました！

Cheng Yong Jian, Singapore★★★★★
It was a great experience with Masako! She was warm, friendly and a great cook and teacher (: We really loved how she guided us through the entire cooking process and it was a very satisfying meal at the end of the day. Would definitely come back and attend another of her teaching lessons ^^
My cooking experience with Masako today was insightful and delicious. Masako was very attentive and provided much information about each dish which included Tamagoyaki, Udon noodles and Tempura. I enjoyed every moment of my cooking experience with Masako and I look forward to my next one. Thank you Masako for your hospitality and your love for food.

Margaret, United States of America★★★★★
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!
Samantha, United Kingdom★★★★★
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.
Masako, Thank you for a great lunch. I enjoyed every minute of it. Good luck with all your future endeavours. Eldin
Nicolas, United States of America★★★★★
Thank you so much! We really enjoyed our time with you and we will treasure this memory and our lessons forever!
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.
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!
Great! Lovely and educational!
Max , Australia★★★★★
So much fun! Friendly and so welcoming! Went by myself and had a blast! Cooking was authentic and was very hands on. I would recommend to everyone heading to Tokyo!
Linda Wong, Hong Kong★★★★★
Thank you for an amazing time. We are very enjoy and the food was amazing and thank you have teach us how to cook.
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.
Sarah van Balekom, New Zealand★★★★★
Hi Masako It was so fabulous to meet you and make food together!
What an awesome experience - highlight of our trip! We don’t know why this isn’t one of the top 5 things to do in Tokyo!! Masako is amazing!! Thank you so much!
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!
David, Hong Kong★★★★★
enjoyable, very relaxing indeed
Masako was a very gracious and patient teacher and host. We definitely enjoyed our experience and will recommend it to friends. Thank you Masako❤️
Kat, United States of America★★★★★
Masako was wonderful! We had such a great time. She was accomdating for our large group, gave us food surprises along the way, and was even a great neighborhood guide. I would recommend Masako to anyone visiting Tokyo!!
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.
Christopher Getts, United States of America★★★★★
Everything was great
Au top!!!! Super cours et un super moment avec masako. Je recommande à 1000%.
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,
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.
Danycia, United States of America★★★★★
I had such fun time experiencing true Japanese cooking, culture, and food through airKitchen! airKitchen is a great way to stay at a Japanese's local's home and learn how to make simple, yet delicious beautiful Japanese dishes. It is a must for anyone visiting Japan!!!
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!
I had really good time with Uchiyama-San. I have wanted to learn Japanese but I have not found any opportinties but I have found and tried airKitchen! It was awsome experience!!
