Stop, drop, and roll with a maki sushi-making experience at Japan’s OLDEST cooking school in central Tokyo! Akahori Cooking School opened its doors in 1882 to teach the art of Japanese cuising and culinary traditions to overseas travelers. During this experience, you’ll make maki sushi memories, form lifelong friendships, develop Japanese cooking skills from veteran chefs, and enjoy a tasty lunch in a retro building steeped in history. Maki sushi–also known as sushi rolls–are widely beloved by foodies. The term ‘maki’ translates to ‘roll’, which refers to wrapping sushi ingredients in seaweed (nori) and vinegared rice. The endless variety of fillings and combinations makes maki sushi so versatile and enticing. From classic options like tuna, salmon, and avocado to more adventurous choices like tempura shrimp or spicy crab, a maki roll suits every palate. Sample itinerary: 1. Arrive at Akahori Cooking School and be greeted by your instructors. 2. Receive a brief rundown of your cooking experience and menu for the day. 3. Prepare sushi rice and other ingredients. 4. Let the maki sushi-making madness begin! 5. Enjoy your tasty, handmade maki sushi lunch.
