What you'll do

Lunch class (10:30 - 14:00) ¥6,250 We will make 1 serving of standard sushi set including local fresh seafood. Miso soup and Green tea will be served. Dinner class (16:30 - 20:00)¥10,000 we will make 1 serving of deluxe sushi set including fresh seafood. You can enjoy a full set of sushi dinner. Drinks will be served including Sake(rice wine). Ingredients differ depending on the day. You’ll be welcomed into my home kitchen to master two authentic styles of sushi: maki, or sushi rolls, and nigiri, or “squeezed” sushi, which involves pressing rice into a rectangular mound, topping it with a strip of fish, and wrapping it all with a band of seaweed. The trickiest part of making nigiri is correctly cutting the fish. I’ll teach you how to slice it into a slightly concave shape so that it conforms to the oblong rice mold. I’ll also show you how to take a sheet of nori (seaweed), fill it with sushi rice and other ingredients, and then roll it all into a perfect cylinder using a bamboo mat. By the end of the lesson, you’ll be able to apply the techniques you learned to make sushi in your own kitchen. The end time may be extended depending on the number of people of the participants.

Masanori

My family has owned and run a sushi restaurant in Asakusa since 1910. I’m the restaurant’s third sushi chef, and I’m committed to continuing the tradition of authentic Edomae (Tokyo-style) sushi. Developed in the early 1800s by a chef in Edo (present-day Tokyo), the technique centers around bite-sized servings formed by hand.

Where you'll be

At first we will go to a grocery store near my house and I will explain you what ingredients we need for making sushi. We’ll practice the technique of sushi-making at my home in Asakusa. This older neighborhood has maintained a traditional atmosphere. The main attraction, Sensoji, the city’s oldest Buddhist temple, is a short walk away. After the workshop, you can stroll the temple grounds and the street-side parks.
