Experience Details
Sushi–but make it vegan! During this cooking class in Tokyo’s traditional Asakusa neighborhood, your instructor Ayaka-sensei will teach you how to make adorable temari sushi (sushi balls) that are colorful and easy to recreate at home. Best of all, they’re made with sustainability in mind, supporting local farmers. Famous for its historical temples and shrines, the Asakusa neighborhood has a distinctive old-school shitamachi (downtown) atmosphere. But despite its wealth of culture and tradition, the area has been embracing new culinary ideas, catering to its foreign tourists with dietary accommodations like vegan food. Your Japanese cooking instructor, Wakahara Ayaka is a tourism professional who has embraced plant-based cuisine, offering a vegan cooking class in the heart of Asakusa. Join Ayaka in a modern restaurant with windows looking over the river and the iconic Tokyo Skytree. Following introductions and a brief explanation from your friendly host, you’ll roll up your sleeves and start making your plant-based feast. Using locally grown and harvested produce, prepare a salad with seasonal vegetables, along with tofu for protein. Next, you’ll learn how to make temari sushi. These ball-shaped pieces of sushi are topped with delicately cut vegetables and arranged in colorful patterns and designs, making them almost too cute to eat! Served alongside miso soup, enjoy this nourishing meal while gazing out at Tokyo Skytree and the Asakusa-bashi skyline.
