Experience Details
Join a professional sushi chef for a private hands-on sushi-making class. First, you’ll learn all about the history of sushi, and the proper dining etiquette at sushi restaurants, so you can dine out like a local in Japan. With the Japanese table manners and faux-pas out of the way, you’ll get started with the sushi cooking class. Guests will get the chance to observe the chef’s skilled knifework as they break down a horse mackerel and slice sashimi. From then on, everyone will get the chance to participate, making perfect, bite-sized nigiri sushi and temakizushi (hand-rolled sushi) containing either tuna or crab. During this cooking class, you’ll also be able to taste real wasabi. You’ll find that it’s quite different from the imitation product you may be used to. Real wasabi (not the stuff that comes in a tube or is served at conveyor-belt sushi restaurants) is notoriously difficult to grow, thriving in shady beds of running water. As such, many people abroad haven’t had the opportunity to try real wasabi, and it’s quite a luxury in Japan. As you sit down to a meal of sushi you personally made, you’ll also get to hear stories from the chef and learn more about their background. At the end of the experience, you’ll come away with newfound skills and photos to commemorate the experience, as well as other souvenirs to take home!
