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 4 toppings of Nigiri zushi from the list below. Besides these toppings, I will prepare other vegetables like cucumber, avocado, flying fish roe, Minced tuna, sweet 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!

“ Lovely, patient, and skillful. ”

Yukiko taught an origami lesson to three children, 8,10, and 12 years old. She was wonderful! She began with simple objects and moved to increasingly complicated creations as the kids caught on quickly through her patient and skillful instruction. She wore a kimono which they also loved, and really enjoyed their time with her. I'd highly recommend Yukiko to any family!

“ trouper guide ”

Yukiko was our tour guide for June 5, 2018. Yukiko was an excellent tour guide, she was flexible as far as customizing our tour and knowledgeable about the Japanese culture and history. She researched and answered all our questions, and provided many insights and recommendations as to how we can enjoy our Japan tour. She took us to an amazing revolving sushi place, which the whole family enjoyed. Best of all, Yukiko was so accommodating to my aunt who had a slight mobility problem. I think this made the tour extra special as she was so patient with her. I recommend Yukiko to everyone who is going to Japan for the first time.

“ Amazing Ambassador ”

We were coming to Japan as a 3 generation family with ages 6-76. We were initially skeptical about any tour guides thinking we could manage on our own with HYPERDIA and google maps. Wow we were all surprised at how easy it was to maneuver with a guide the first day. We booked two half days and asked all the questions we could so we could figure out what we wanted and how to move forward. Yokiko made our trip a breeze. She became a part of our family looking out for us and asking questions in Japanese to locals to get us the answers. Our smallest was so sad she wasn’t going to be joining us thru the rest of the trip. She is amazing and spent time getting to know each one of us so she could help us enjoy her country. There is not a better guide in Tokyo.

“ Tokyo highlights in 1 full day ”

Yukiko was a fantastic tour guide. She created an itinerary that showed us highlights of Tokyo in a day. The tour was fun, historical and varied. Saw temples and shrines, learned about Japanese history and culture. Rode the train and rode the boat. Yukiko was prompt and very nice. I highly recommend her as a tour guide to anyone who visits Tokyo.
