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!

“ 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.

“ Wonderful time with Yukiko! ”

We had such a lovely time making sushi with Yukiko! She was so friendly and welcoming. It was such a unique experience to make sushi with a Tokyo native in her own home. She was so patient with us as we tried for the first time to make hand-shaped sushi rolls. We truly enjoyed our time with Yukiko and would recommend the sushi making class to anyone who is traveling in Tokyo.

“ Perfect Way to start our Vacation ”

My daughter (16) and I arrived in Japan for the first time and do not speak English. We had done our research and knew what we wanted to see but had no idea how to navigate the city and train system. We thankfully hired Yukiko who answered all our questions prior to arriving over email. She was timely and thorough and able to understand exactly what we wanted. Upon arrival she is prompt, professional and had our agenda clearly mapped out. She even printed out copies of suggestions for us to get around after our tour for the remainder of trip. We had a lovely lunch and so much fun exploring the fish market, Akihabara and Harajuku. She even taught us some Japanese over lunch which was amazing! We are headed to Kyoto and Osaka and have decided to hire a guide for us in each city to ensure we are confident about traveling and how to get around. Today was so much fun as we knew where to go and had our handy map at our side which Yukiko provided us, knowing we would live by it while in Tokyo. Thank you so much Yukiko. I absolutely recommend her for your tour, she is the best!!! She set the entire tone for our vacation. Forever grateful to her! Lesley

“ Day tour of Tokyo ”

One of the best guides ever - fully informed about history, religion, nature. Yukiko planned a wonderful day tour of Tokyo based on our particular interests and arranged everything from transportation to lunch. Outstanding

“ We highly recommend Yukiko! ”

Yukiko was a fantastic guide. She speaks English very well, and she is informative. Yukiko led us (my husband, 10 year old daughter and me) around Tokyo on a custom tour. I had given her a handful of places that we wanted to see and Yukiko arranged everything. She met us at our hotel, and we took the subway to the Tsukiji fish market. From there, we walked to a restaurant where she had previously made reservations. After lunch, we walked to the Hamarikyu Gardens and drank tea in a teahouse overlooking the gardens. Next we took the riverboat to Asakasa and visited the Senso-Ji shrine as well as walked down the souvenir street. From here we took the subway to Akihabara. Knowing our interests, she took us to specific stores that we would like. From there, she showed us how to take the subway back to our hotel. We would have never been able to see as much as we did without Yukiko’s help. We took this tour on our very first full day in Tokyo, and it was the best choice. Yukiko did a great job of explaining the subway system, helping us to purchase a pasmo card, explaining customs explaining the history of the sights. She is patient and wanted us to enjoy ourselves. Yukiko was wonderful with our daughter who had many questions; and she even brought along a worksheet to teach her Japanese. We really liked her personality and she was really nice to be around.
