Temari Sushi Class & Sake Tasting

10:30am – 5:00pm
¥2,160 – ¥2,700

This event features two different classes so you can choose one or both, depending on your schedule.

Firstly, you can learn how to make traditional “Temari” ball sushi and find out about the koji-fermentation involved in making Japanese pickles. Temari sushi is an easy and convenient type of suchi to make at home, topped with vegetables and sushi (adaptable for vegans). The course will be lead by Joei Asari, a fermentation expert who has a long history of teaching Japanese cuisine abroad. The sessions are only 30 minutes long, and reservations are required before August 2nd. There are four time sessions to choose from, starting at 10.30am, 11.15 am, 1pm and 1.45pm.

Alternatively, you can try a sake tasting where you’ll learn all about the best summer sakes, enjoy a guided tasting and then try a blind taste-test to see what you’ve learned. The course will be taught by Jun Ohkuma, a manager of a well known sake shop in Shimbashi who also speaks English. There will be three types of sake to try and three kinds of “otsumami” – foods that are traditionally paired with sake. The class costs 2,700 yen and lasts for one hour. There are two slots – one starting at 4pm and one at 5.30pm.

The classes take place on the same day as the Asagaya Tanabata festival, so it’s a great chance to spend a culture-filled day in the area.
