    Learning how to make sushi by two highly-skilled and experience Japanese chefs. Also, we were given lots of information about the different types of food and ingredients.

  • Kigouya

    I’m not sure if this was the standard course that she offers, because a sushi chef joined and taught us how to make real sushi.
    Our experience was quite unique, authentic and very enjoyable.

    Learning how to make sushi from experts.

    Machiko was an incredible host who introduced us to Japanese cooking in her high rise modern Osaka apartment. She’s fluent in English and teaches cooking professionally. Hiro kindly explained the 7 step nigiri sushi making process. Everything was delicious and the atmosphere was easy going. A truly unique experience.
