How about a hands-on Japanese cooking experience with a professional chef? We offer the following 2 tours for soba and sushi making experiences. Both are fully assisted with an English-speaking guide for your better understanding of the cooking procedure.

Secrets to Making Soba

Soba is the traditional Japanese noodles made from buckwheat. The process of making soba is not only technical but also artistic and requires craftsmanship. It is Japanese culture by itself. The chef used to run a popular soba restaurant up at Mt. Tento. He’s a passionate cook with strong appreciation of local culture. Try the challenge in a unique Japanese setting that overlooks the Okhotsk Sea and the Shiretoko mountains! It will surely be a lifetime memory! You’ll also be able to try out your handmade soba after class.

Quick & Easy Sushi Making

It’s an interactive cooking class with a local sushi chef and a sushi dinner to follow. Having worked at a sushi restaurant in Singapore, the sushi chef, Nabe-san knows how to make sushi in a modern and easy way as well as the traditional way. He’ll teach you the fundamental techniques of making traditional “nigiri” sushi and “norimaki” and apply it to the western sushi “rolls”. The class is casual and practical so that you can practice it back at home without any traditional sushi utensils. While having the sushi dinner made by yourself, you’ll get to hear some sushi trivia and stories surrounding the “sushi-world”!
