Enjoy Authentic, Vegan Japanese Food
Japan isn’t the easiest place to live or travel as a vegan (though things are gradually changing). We at airKitchen strongly believe that being vegan doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your enjoyment of Japan’s famed food culture during your time here. Traditional Japanese cuisine includes many vegan ingredients and dishes, as well as those that can easily be veganized. For example, shojin ryori is a traditional Japanese style of cooking that has roots in Buddhism and is typically vegan- and vegetarian-friendly. If you’re craving vegan sushi, ramen, gyoza, omurice, and more during your stay in Tokyo, please explore our vegan cooking class offerings!
Take Part in an Intimate Cultural Exchange Experience
When we travel to foreign countries, it can be difficult to really grasp cultural differences beyond a shallow understanding and what daily life is like for locals. We’re hoping to change that. Through an airKitchen cooking class, you’ll learn Japanese-style cooking from locals in their own homes. From them, you’ll not only learn the traditions and techniques of preparing Japanese cuisine, but also gain perspective into Japanese culture and ways of life. In turn, we hope you can share your own unique experiences and points of view with your Japanese host.
Bring Japanese-style Vegan Cooking Skills Home With You
The cooking techniques, recipes, and conversations your host shares with you will travel home with you. You’ll be able to recreate the tasty vegan Japanese dishes you made during class for yourself and loved ones back home, as well as recall the special memories you made together with your host!
