What Guests Said About Cooking Classes in Tokyo:

  • To anyone considering joining a cooking class in Tokyo - do it

    I absolutely loved my time with Nancy-san and and would highly recommend it to anyone that wants to have a really wonderful experience, with really lovely people, involving some really delicious local food. Especially as a Vegetarian person in Japan, this was an amazing opportunity to experience genuine Japanese food that also fit into my dietary restrictions. The Air Kitchen team and Nancy checked with me every step of the way as to what I could and could not have, and the end result was definitely one of the best meals I’ve had in Japan. We made an incredible variety of super tasty Tofu based dishes, including Yuba-Don, Shira-ae, Miso Soup, Miso Pickled Tofu, Stewed Fried Tofu and Vegetables, Home Made Tofu with Soy Milk... The list goes on. Despite being a terrible cook, Nancy was patient, and inspired me to showed me that even I could make a scrumptious and nutritious meal. I will definitely be using these recipes to feed myself and recreate the memories. Thank you to the team and Nancy for making it such a delicious, warm and lovely evening.

  • Learned a lot of cooking secrets while having tons of fun!

    Me and Daniele are cooking enthusiasts and we love Japanese cuisine. Since our attempts to try to reproduce in Italy the delicious japanese meals have not been very successful, we decided to have an authentic japanese experience and searching online we have found the Airkitchen website. Since we are vegetarian, we wrote them to ask for an advice and they put us in contact with Masako to arrange a vegetarian cooking class session. We arrived at Masako house that is in a quiet and charming neighbourhood and we started right away to create the base for the udon. We have learned a lot of cooking secrets while having tons of fun! I totally recommend this cooking class experience, we cooked udon, tempura, omelette and had a small tea ceremony.

  • You are getting the essence of Tokyo by joining a cooking class!

    At present, I have the good fortune of living in Japan for an extended time before returning back to the United States. When I have to return, I wanted to bring back more than a trinket or a souvenir from Japan. I sought to bring a cultural skill back to the States, something authentically Japanese in both technique and mindset. I wanted to share the spirit of Japan with my friends. airKitchen gives me this.
    Because it is an offshoot of AirBnB, I was already familiar with its easy-to-use platform and could trust its safety for payment and a quality experience. Through airKitchen, I am able to have an authentic Japanese cooking class in a Japanese home. Because I’ve taken several classes, I am also introduced to different areas of Tokyo and receive a local’s perspective of the area. One hostess even took me shopping so that I could navigate the wonderful world of Japanese ingredients with her help. It was like having my own personal tour guide!
    Each cooking class is different and teaches me something new about the beautiful culture that is Japan. When I cooked with Yuki, I learned proper place settings for our delicious chicken yakatori, kiriboshi, wheat bran pickles and miso soup made from homemade dashi that we created. Oishi! As an educator, because I was in her home, I was also interested to see the child development toys and books for her adorable son.
    For Naoko’s cooking class, I learned the intricate method of the Japanese egg omelet (is that what is is?). I did not roll it correctly, but Naoko demonstrated the art of this technique patiently. I feel confident that when I practice this, I will be successful. Naoko also introduced me to Japanese cooking staples; I was delighted to learn about Naoko’s homemade miso paste and soy sauce that has been brewing for over two years!
    Taking cooking classes through the airKitchen website gives a wide array of the healthy and delicious cooking of Japan. Clean cooking is important to me. These cooking classes allow me to bring this beneficial nutrition home to my family. By booking with airKitchen, you are getting so much more than a cooking class….you are getting the essence of Japan!

    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!

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.
