Experience Details
Sushi is one of Japan’s most famous dishes, but as there are so many delicious styles and toppings where should you even start? Learn everything you need to know about sushi and join a Nagoya Sushi Making Class on your next trip to the industrial capital of Japan: Nagoya. During this fun and hands-on cooking class, you’ll have the opportunity to make 4 different types of sushi. This Nagoya Sushi Making Class is where you’ll learn how to make ball-shaped temari sushi, hand-rolled sushi, vegetable sushi (that’s right, not all sushi is made from raw fish!), and a battleship-shaped “gunkan” style of sushi. Your friendly English-speaking cooking instructor will welcome you to her traditional Japanese home in a local Nagoya neighborhood, where the cooking studio is located inside a renovated 105-year-old Japanese “kura” storehouse! A glimpse into old Japanese culture, you can also enjoy walking around her tranquil Japanese garden. You’ll have a seasonal welcome drink before heading off into the vegetable garden to help harvest some fruits and vegetables when they’re in season, then make your own delicious Nagoya sushi after a demonstration. Your cooking instructor is friendly and flexible, and more than happy to answer any questions you might have about Japanese food or Nagoya cuisine. You’ll learn handy tips and tricks on how to make traditional Japanese food in your home country, using simple alternative cooking methods like microwaves, pressure pots, and ovens which can be used in place of traditional Japanese steamers, grills, and more. You’ll become a sushi master, making 4 different types of sushi from a range of delicious fresh ingredients, and then eat them too! Plus, you can take any leftover foods home as a delicious souvenir.

Experience Location

A small city to the north of Nagoya, Iwakura lies to the northwest of Aichi Prefecture and sits within the Nobi Plain, stretching across from Gifu Prefecture. A local neighborhood just on the outskirts of Nagoya City, Iwakura is sprinkled with temples, shrines, and park areas, with examples of traditional thatched-roof houses at Iwakura City Historic Park among some ancient ruins. Iwakura is bordered by the Yado River to the east and the Gojo River to the south, with both being wonderful cherry blossom viewing spots. The compact city is only a 20-minute train ride from Nagoya Station.
