Kaori is certified Raw food and Vegan Japanese Food instructor. She used to live Los Angels about 8 years in total. She loves to meet and chat with people come from overseas to exchange culture experience.
Rina grew up in Kobe.After graduating from high school, her mom recommended that she join ABC Cooking School to learn how to become a "good housewife". "In Japan you are considered to be a good wife based on your culinary skills", she Ikeda says. The upside to the course was after learning how to cook and eat healthy, she lost about 20kg very quickly. Rina then stopped using foundation on her face because her skin looked very healthy after learning how to eat properly. She now knows first hand from these life experiences how healthy Japanese food. That is why she is so passionate about sharing Japanese Cuisine, in English, to foreigners residing here in Japan. Or anyone that wants to learn English for that matter.

I had a amazing time hanging out with Rina and learning how to make the Totoro Bento box. Everything was perfect and the next time I come back to Tokyo, I will take the Gyoza class! Thank you!
We had the best time! Rina is amazingly sweet and the food was perfect. Definitely recommend!
It was an amazing cooking class we have ever visited! Rina and Akiko taught us how to make our lunches more creative, so we will never forget that interesting lesson. ❤️☺️ Of course, our obentos doesn’t look as cool as your ones, but we tried to do our best! ☝️Nice to met you and hope to see you again!
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.
