Sushi is a popular Japanese cuisine that is enjoyed all over the world for its simplicity and freshness. In this Sushi Making Show and Tea Tasting Event, you’ll watch as two trained sushi chefs prepare different types of sushi for you to taste. This class is definitely for those cooking beginners that appreciate food, but prefer a hands-off approach and want to observe the techniques of real sushi chefs. You’ll learn about tea and sushi in-depth as taught by not only one female sushi chef but two female sushi chefs, who have made it in a male-dominated industry. You’ll get a close-up look at how sushi is made and also learn about the techniques and history of sushi while receiving some tips about making your own, with the class having an emphasis of the appreciation of sushi. In addition to the sushi making show, you’ll get a chance to taste and learn more about Japanese tea. You will be tasting 5 different kinds of Japanese tea. Your tasting instructors are twin sisters (Ayumi and Shihomi) who worked as sushi chefs in Geneva, Switzerland for three years and worked as itamae (Japanese cuisine chefs) in Tokyo for seven years. This is an incredible accomplishment as female sushi chefs are fairly uncommon in Japan. These women are incredibly intelligent and kind and will ensure that your tasting experience is one of a kind.

Meeting Point and Meeting Time
The meeting point is the Central Gate of JR Meguro Station. The class takes place at the chefs’ private home in Meguro.
Please be reminded to come to the class on time
Meguro is central enough, but not quite in the thick of chaotic city life. Surrounded by a cluster of restaurants and bars of Meguro Dori Street, cherry blossoms line the canal along the Meguro River, a popular spot for hanami season in spring. Follow the river to the west and you’ll end up at the trendy bars and hipster cafes of Nakameguro. The ward stretches as far as Yutenji and Tokyo’s Little Europe in Jiyugaoka. Meguro is home to 500 Buddha statues in Daienji Temple, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography, and the unusual Meguro Parasitological Museum.
