Would you like to learn Japanese home cooking online? This is the class for you. In this class, you will cook the dishes Japanese mothers cook daily for their family, though they might not be so famous in overseas compared to sushi or tempura. They are mild taste and easy on the body. Let’s cook the real Japanese homestyle dishes together!
If you have any inquires, feel free to ask me during the class, also before and/or after the class. You can join this class via "zoom”. You'll need an internet access. Please install "zoom" in advance. I'll send the recipes and URL to join the class to your email 2 days before the class. Up to 2 people can join the class at the same time, but please use the same device.

I’ll teach you how to make the broth during the class. This broth will be used to make dipping sauce for Agedashi-dofu and miso soup. If you can’t find Kelp, you can still cook these dishes with water.

Nice to meet you! My name is Yoko.I'm a vegetable sommelier.
I love cooking and eating Japanese dishes with seasonal vegetables.
I'm happy to share with you healthy dishes I cook daily for my family.
I’m growing organic vegetables.
You might have a chance to eat fresh organic homegrown vegetables.*
I love traveling and "taste" different cultures.
I've traveled about 50 countries as a tour guide and for a private trip.
It was a lot of fun to meet local people and eat local foods.
That's why I decided to become a local host of airKitchen.
I'm excited to welcome you to my kitchen with lots of hospitality and do cultural exchange through cooking.
By the way, I’m a mother of a little girl.
My daughter will be at home during my lesson so children and babies are more than welcome.

Looking forward to seeing you!
