Ai

Hi my name is Ai. My story with cooking has began when I discovered the recipes from my Grandmother, who passed away when I was a child. Her recipe was full of the secret of amazing Japanese tastes and I became absorbed in cooking from this precious encounter. In 2013, I moved to Paris and started a Japanese food catering business and taught Japanese cooking class to local French people. My clients included various embassies and galleries, Grand Maison of Fashion, and individual artists. With this experience, I moved back to Japan in 2018 to begin my Kyoto cooking studio

Where you'll be

Ai’s Cuisine cooking studio is located in Higashiyama, one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Kyoto. Yasaka-Jinja Shrine, Chion-in Temple, and Nanzen-ji Temple are within walking distance, so it’s convenient for guests to wander around before or after class. Our Machiya house is more than 80 years old and was fully renovated in 2018 for Ai’s cooking class. The studio combines the best of traditional Japanese and modern design elements.
