What you'll do

I want all guests to be able to make sushi on your own after this unique experience! I'm sure you'll have a memorable moment that will stay in you forever!

First, I'll teach how to make sushi rice, which is very important part of making sushi. Then, after my demonstration how to make nigiri and a roll, it's your time to make your own sushi. I will prepare two or three different seafood for nigiri and one or two different ingredients for rolls. Ingredients depend on availability at the market. I also provide recipes and useful information about ingredients such as seaweed, rice, vinegar and seafood.

You can have sushi lunch with miso soup and sparkling sake/non alcohol drink. You’re more than welcome to join my experience with your family!
Other things to note
I'll give you detailed direction after the confirmation of reservation.

I strongly recommend to join my experience in the beginning of your travel since I can provide lots of useful information.

I found that sushi is very fascinating while living in San Francisco as a preschool teacher. I also had a part time job at sushi catering company and learned how to make sushi there. After I came back to Japan, I attended culinary school to be a professional sushi chef and started sushi catering business. Sushi makes people happy and I want you to make people around you happy by making it!

I'm also a certified tour guide in Japan. During the lesson, I can provide information about transportation, Japanese cultures and etc. I recommend to take my class in the beginning of your trip!

We really enjoyed this sushi class. Mamoru was a great host and was very welcoming. He also speaks good English and really knows his stuff. In addition to the sushi we made, lunch was served with miso soup and sparkling sake. We would definitely recommend!

La clase de makis y nigiris ha sido espléndida, Mamoru conoce a detalle este arte, ya que es un chef profesional. Es muy amable y te explica muy bien. He pasado un muy buen rato cocinando con él.

Thanks for having us in your home Mamorou! That was my favourite activity in Tokyo :) We definitely left feeling confident about our new skills as sushi chefs. I have already made sushi again at home hehe. The way you taught us was easy to follow, interactive, really good style & we had fun along the way! See you next time that we are back through!
