Sushi Cooking Class in Osaka

Try your hand at sushi-making during a 2.5-hour course, limited to just eight participants, in Osaka. Learn from a professional instructor as you learn to master this uniquely Japanese art, then sit down to dinner, as you taste your handiwork with the other guests.

Start your sushi-making course at Nishikujo train station in the afternoon, where you’ll meet your professional instructor and licensed chef. Walk with your instructor to a nearby home to start your course. For those interested in the full-immersion sushi experience, upgrade to the yukuta option to wear an authentic Japanese kimono during your class.

Follow along as your instructor demonstrates the preparations for making sushi rice, as well as rolling techniques to place sashimi (thin-sliced fish) and other ingredients inside the dried seaweed rolling paper, called nori. Take your turn, allowing yourself a few tries to get the hang of things, as you select ingredients offered by the chef.

Have a seat to enjoy your rolls with the other guests. Your meal is accompanied by miso soup, a Japanese omelet and a selection of snacks. If you’d like, upgrade to include a local sake and Osaka-brewed beer tasting to wash it all down. The tasting includes either six sakes or four sakes and one bottle of beer.

After dinner, test your hand at making taiyaki (a fish-shaped cake) for dessert. Once you’ve gotten sufficiently full, head back to Nishikuji train station to finish your excursion.

This was definitely a highlight of our 2 week trip to Japan. It exceeded my expectations, and I am so glad we did this. I 100 recommend this sushi-making class! Yayo met us at the train station and walked us to her apartment. We had a lovely tea, and then proceeded to making a Japanese omelet, Yayo showed us how to make miso, and then we made our sushi. Beautiful, fun experience -- take this class, you will not regret it!!
