Full description
You will be picked up at your hotel and brought to the restaurant. Once you arrive, your private experience will begin by meeting the master chefs and putting on the chef's apron and hat. The chefs who will guide you through the sushi-making process are all masters of their craft who trained diligently for many years before they were allowed to serve customers. You not only get to learn authentic sushi craftsmanship from a master chef, but you will also get the incredibly rare experience of actually stepping behind the sushi counter to make your creations from the point-of-view of a real chef.

The friendly master chefs will guide you through making a number of different traditional "nigiri" sushi using the freshest of raw fish acquired earlier that day from the nearby Tsukiji fish market. Unlike much of the sushi found abroad, this is "real-deal" authentic sushi from a famous restaurant with almost a century of history behind it. You will finish by choosing one hand-roll to make (avocado, tuna or crab), and then you will move to a table to enjoy your creations, miso soup, and a couple of sushi pieces made by the master chef!

During the meal the chef and your professional tour guide translator will explain to you the history of sushi, secrets of the trade and answer any questions you may have. In addition to the white chef's coat and hat, each of you will receive a fan, a traditional "yunomi" teacup, and a group photo to remember your experience.
