Hello, my name is Norio. I come from a family of sushi chefs and have been in the business for over 25 years. When serving sushi, my motto is “Sushi depends on high quality ingredients, personality, and efficiency”. I work to promote nutrition education through modern sushi making. When thinking of simple but refined cuisine, of course sushi is the first thing that comes to mind. Why not learn to make sushi with your own two hands?

    This activity was amazing! I was able to make (and eat!) amazing sushi that I got to prepare myself with the instruction of a sushi master! The host was very accommodating, and even though he didn't speak English we were still able to learn much through watching him work and talking through the translator. Come learn interesting facts about sushi history and try your hand at making it under a sushi master! With his help even a first timer can make professional looking sushi!See moreSee less
