Experience Details

Full of rich umami flavors, soy sauce and miso paste are classic Kyoto specialties. Japan's old capital is home to several breweries that produce a wide variety of seasonings, which have preserved their fermentation and brewing methods for decades, if not centuries. In this creative sushi-making class, you'll sample a variety of Kyoto's traditional flavors as you learn the craft of sushi-making from local instructors. After a welcome drink, you'll learn about Japan's food culture before you get hands-on in making dashimaki tamago, a Kyoto-style savory rolled omelet, miso soup, and three different kinds of sushi: nigiri, temari, and temaki. Let your creativity shine as you experiment with other ingredients and combinations to craft artistic sushi pieces with help from your host. All ingredients are fresh and sourced from reputable vendors to ensure their quality. You'll also taste dashi broth and learn about the vinegar used for sushi rice, soy sauce, and miso from Kyoto. Once your meal is ready, you'll sit at the table to enjoy it. This is not just a meal but a chance to engage in conversation with other guests and your host, a Kyoto tourism specialist who can provide unique insights about what to see, do, and eat while in the old capital. After the meal, enjoy coffee and dessert before continuing to explore the city. The class is in central Kyoto near Gion and Nishiki Market, only a few minutes from Kyoto Station by train, and makes for a perfect stop in any travel itinerary.
