Sushi is very popular all over the world. Let's make your own sushi together! The taste which you made must be special.
Our sushi class includes three kinds of sushi (temari, nigiri and gunkan-maki), chawan-mushi (Japanese steamed egg custard) and miso soup. Not only enjoying to make sushi but talking and food. If you don't know chawan-mushi, try it! Very yummy. And you can learn how to make authentic miso soup. It's absolutely different from instant one. You will know culture and sushi history, too.

*Please note that our studio doesn't suite for little kids. I set up over 10 year old.
*Please book at least 2 days before the class. I can't accept same day reservations.
*Minimum is 2 people. I can't accept 1 person.

Our kitchen studio is 5 minute walk from famous Shibuya crossing. It's easy to find.

Our cooking experience with Emi was amazing! We arrived early and she was extremely hospitable. Her kitchen was spacious and clean, and Emi spoke English almost perfectly. She was thorough in explanations and processes, and took her time. The experience was amazing as we were not rushed, and as a result the food was great! The sake paired with it was also perfect. Highly recommend this as a must do for anyone in Tokyo - Josh & Asha

Our class with Emi was one of the highlights of our trip to Tokyo. We had a wonderful experience learning about and preparing sushi, having interesting conversations with our fellow classmates while eating and drinking the delicious results of our practice. My shrimp cutting skills might still need some work but this class should not be missed if you're spending some time in Tokyo and looking for a next-level experience.
