And I often see a lot of tourists in famous sushi restaurants around Osaka.
Have you ever thought about trying to actually make that delicious sushi yourself?
In Japan, people often make hand rolls, where you roll the contents in a sheet of dried seaweed, but nigiri* sushi, is a little difficult, so it’s not really made at home...
*nigiri sushi is made without seaweed, just fish on top of rice, and wasabi in between
With that, we bring you today’s experience. You can actually learn how to make this nigiri sushi and afterwards, you’ll be able to make it at home. Let’s try making some fresh sushi!
The venue is in Namba, the backstreet restaurant and bar, Tombo.
We went in and the instructor greeted us with a smile.
▼Then, we actually give it a try. He’ll stay beside you and help you out if you have any trouble♪
▼The instructor said I was good, so this is me trying to look like a real pro.
The gloves are covered in rice though. (lol)
And just like that, we made 8 different kinds of nigiri sushi!
Even a complete beginner like me can make them as nice as this♪
After the nigiri, it’s time for some sushi art, or dekomaki sushi!
Dekomaki sushi is rolled so that when it’s cut, there’s a pattern on the cross-section.
▼We make 5 thin rolls and combine them into one.
(It didn’t turn out perfect, but that’s OK! lol)
To go with the sushi you made, you’ll also get a bowl of miso* soup.
*seasoning made from fermented soybeans
Maybe it’s because I made it myself, but I felt like it tasted better than usual!
"3 Variety Sake Tasting" Option (+ ¥1500)
Enjoy Japanese culture with sushi and sake!
This time I got to make nigiri sushi for the first time. It was easier and more fun than I expected! Using what I learned today, I’ll have to have a sushi party with all my friends♪ If you’ve come or are going to come to Japan, I think you should give this sushi making experience a try. Take home not only memories, but a new skill too!
