Sushi-Making Experience

Learn how to make and prepare fresh sushi for yourself in Japan.

Travelers going to Japan often anticipate having real sushi experiences as part of their trip activities. For some it includes just eating sushi at restaurants, but for others it is a great chance at having a hands-on sushi-making experience. Even if you do not like sushi, it can be a chance for a good story to tell back home.

Once you learn a little about sushi, making sushi is the next step. It is convenient to learn how to make sushi on your own. This is especially true for those who eat sushi often and do not want to spend too much money going out for a bite, or for those who simply want to use the convenience of their own kitchen. Plus, you will also be able to improve or widen your cooking knowledge and Japanese culture. It is also good to keep in mind that there are many types of sushi for many types of people; whether you are a vegetarian, or simply do not eat fish, there are different types of ingredients that will still allow you to enjoy a good sushi dish.

If this is your first time learning about sushi, you should know that most sushi is often made with shrimp (えび in hiragana), tuna (まぐろ in hiragana), or salmon (しゃけ in hiragana). However, there are also sushi types that are made with no seafood or meat at all. Sushi is versatile with its ingredients and designs, there are even some that are round in shape. These type of ball-shaped sushi are called “temari zushi” (てまりずしin hiragana, 手毬寿 司 in kanji), and they are usually designed with colorful vegetables, fish, or even avocado. A common sushi type is one that is rolled with seaweed paper, also called “nori” (のり in hiragana). In most cases, any sushi that ends with “-maki” will usually be a rolled sushi type because “maki” usually means a “roll” of some sort. There is also the “futomaki” (ふとまきin hiragana, or 太巻きin kanji). This type of sushi roll is a generally wider than a regular sushi roll, and it is usually accompanied with vegetables like cucumber and carrots. It may also have crab and egg in the sushi roll, or raw fish depending on your preferences.

The experience of learning a few culture cuisines is worth the try. It is especially encouraged if you are in Tokyo where you are nearby one of the most famous seafood establishments, the Tsukiji Fish Market. Having a sushi chef to assist you with proper sushi-making techniques can greatly maximize your experience in Japan. Checking off this activity as part of your travel experiences will likely be a plus to your adventures and memories.

Note: For the Sushi-making Experience, if you are vegetarian, on gluten- free diets, have seafood allergy, or don't eat raw fish, please contact us for other ingredient options.
