    We had a fabulous time learning the art of Sushi making. The only criticism (and not the fault of the host) was that we were given incorrect location details with our confirmation. Even though we turned up 15 mins early for the session we were only able to find the correct location 20 mins late. Not only did we miss some of our time but it was also very stressful. Apparently our host had made several requests for this error to be fixed- its time the booking agency acted on this !!
