What to Expect

In this course, you can enjoy learning how to make three different kinds of sushi. We will make sushi rolls, Nigiri zushi (hand shaped sushi) and Gunkan maki (Ship shaped sushi). After making your own sushi, it's time for eating your own sushi!
We'll start from making the sushi vinegar and the sushi rice, then we will try to make sushi rolls using a traditional tool, bamboo mat. After that we will make Nigiri sushi and the Gunkan sushi.

I will order the toppings after hearing your preference and food allergy. You will pick the toppings up and pay at a local super market on the way to the venue.
You can select about 5 toppings of Nigiri zushi from the list below. Besides these toppings, I will prepare other vegetables like cucumber, avocado, cream cheese, sweet red pepper for sushi rolls and Gunkan sushi.

Topping list: tuna, salmon, sea bream(snapper), boiled-prawn,sweet raw shrimp, scallop, squid, salmon roe(Ikura), egg omelet, Octopus
As I need to order the ingredients from a fish store in advance, you need to book this program 2 days before to your program date at least.
The venue is a room with a nice view of condominium located near Futako Tamagawa station which is about 15 minutes from Shibuya station by metro Hanzomon line. We will meet at the ticket gate of Futako Tamagawa station. It takes about 7 minutes on foot from Futako tamagawa station to the venue. If you need, I can pick you up at your hotel. (extra charge is needed.)

There are several shopping malls near Futako Tamagawa station such as Takashimaya department store.
So you can get some Sushi tools after learning how to make sushi and get ready for Sushi party at your home!!

Please follow the guide's instruction during the program. I shall not be responsible for any accidents during and after this program.
I'm very looking forward to meeting you!
Thank you!

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a four years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Excellent Guide for families ”

Yukiko made excellent suggestions for places for us to visit with our 2 boys (age 13 and 7). We visited Tsukiji market, Honda Welcome centre, Samaurai Museum, Ninja Trick House and the shops of Tokyo Station. She was very helpful in showing us how to navigate Tokyo using the train system and made us feel very welcome. On our return visit we would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to anyone who wanted a guide to help them navigate Tokyo and see things you may not ordinarily see. Mervin M

“ Yukiko knows Tokyo - culturally, historically... all of it! ”

If you want a personalized tour of Tokyo take one with Yukiko! She’s knowledgeable and well prepared for your interest. We enjoyed her company and were thrilled with all the sights we could visit. There wasn’t a question she could not answer.

“ Excellent tour guide for families ”

Yukiko was a wonderful person to tour Tokyo with. She is easy to have a conversation with while walking around; more like touring the city with a friend, not someone you're just meeting for the first time. Yukiko recommended the right mix of sites to interest my husband and I as well as our 7 year old (the ninja experience was a hit and he can't stop talking about it). She was very prepared and gave us brief background history on the various sites we visited, which we really appreciated. I highly recommend a tour with Yukiko.

“ Great guide ”

Yukiko was a wonderful guide who worked with us to personalize our tour. We were in Tokyo for 5 days and hired her for the first 2 days. Without her, there certainly would have been places/events we would have missed. And she was very good in giving us specific recommendations for the best shops for food items we were interested in. My elderly parents were traveling with us and Yukiko was very attentive. The main thing we found in having Yukiko with us is that she greatly removed any of the stress of navigating Tokyo. We found having her with us just made the days so much easier and pleasant. Would definitely recommend her to anyone traveling to Tokyo.

“ Awesome guide!! ”

The reviews don’t to justice when it comes to Kukiko. She is very knowledgeable, flexible with changes, and always had smile on her face. Even durIng transit between locations she took time to teach origami. She also found great reataurant for lunch to accommodate couple vegetarians in our group. All of us in our group enjoyed touring with Yukiko and we would tour again next time we visit.
