Experience Details

Embark on a captivating journey to Niigata Prefecture, where the mesmerizing coastline casts a net for the most exquisite fish. This coastal haven–along the western edge of Japan–is a treasure trove of seafood wonders, but the region's fame extends to its rice aka the foundation of Japanese cooking. Join an experience that combines the two with a sushi-making class taught by a professionally trained chef! From slicing the fish and shaping the rice to assembling and plating these bite-sized delights, you’ll master it all using fresh seafood sourced from the local market. Your guide for the day? A professionally trained sushi master boasting 50+ years of experience. While this sushi savant speaks Japanese, fret not, for a skillful guide will be your trusty sidekick, bridging the language gap with ease. Our rendezvous unfolds at an authentic restaurant, where a tantalizing world of flavors awaits. Here, you’ll change into pro-chef costume to put you in the right mindset–dress like a pro, act like a pro! You’ll craft sushi with fish plucked from the ocean's embrace on the very morning of your experience. The chef will school you in the history, culture, and vocabulary of sushi, along with tales of Niigata rice.
