Meet your professional instructor, a licensed chef, at the North Gate of JR Morinomiya Station in Osaka. From here, you'll walk to a nearby home to start your 2.5-hour sushi-making lesson, limited to just eight participants.
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." Select ingredients offered by the chef and take your turn, allowing yourself a few tries to get the hang of things as you learn to master this uniquely Japanese art.
Then have a seat to enjoy your sushi rolls with the other guests. Your dinner is accompanied by miso soup, a Japanese omelet, and a selection of snacks. If you’d like, upgrade to include a local sake tasting with the option of Osaka-brewed beer to wash it all down. The tasting includes either six sakes or four sakes and one bottle of beer.
After your meal, test your hand at making taiyaki for dessert. Once you’ve gotten sufficiently full, head back to Morinomiya Station.
