About your host

I've been owner of Omusubi (rice ball) cafe for about two years and offer many kinds of Omusubi like simple traditional ones and original ones I developed. I would like many foreign tourists to know Japanese food culture by making Omusubi with us.

What we’ll do

At first, I'll introduce the history of Omusubi. After that, let's shape rice into three shapes with your own hands -- a triangle (the most standard shape nowadays), a cylinder, and a ball. You can choose fillings from about 10 kinds of traditional or unique ones (the fillings will be changed depends on the season, and some of them can be arranged to be suitable for vegetarians).

What else you should know

It's suitable for vegetarians. Unfortunately we don't have menus for vegans.

What I’ll provide

Food
Rice and fillings
Tea
Green Tea (it will be changed depends on the season)
Equipment
An apron, PVC gloves, tools to make Omusubi

Where you'll be

You make Omusubi in my restaurant, that is newly renovated old town house called Machiya, and its age is about 100 years.
