Sushi is very popular all over the world. Let's make 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. Just enjoy making sushi, talking and food. If you don't know chawan-mushi, try it! Very yummy. And you can learn how to make real miso soup. It's absolutely different from instant one. You will know culture and history,too.
Please note that our studio doesn't suite for little kids. I set up over 10 year old.
Our kitchen studio is several minute walk from famous Shibuya crossing. It's easy to find.

Take the Hachiko exit out of Shibuya station. Cross the famous Shibuya crosswalk, go straight until you see a large store called 'MODI'. Take a left at the store and keep walking until you pass the Disney store, MUJI and a cafe called 'Cafe Miyama' on your left. My cooking studio is in the building called 'Yamate Mansion' which is adjacent to the cafe. Go through the automatic door and take the elevator to the 9th floor, #906. You will see a signboard saying 'Emi's kitchen' on the door.
We had a fantastic lesson, we learnt a lot and emi was very comfortable and clever
Food was great and Emi a very nice host!
Only a bit more entertainment and background info on food would be great!
Thank you soo much!
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
