Become a sushi master chef! Under Kyoto Tower, try making sushi yourself!
Sushi might be the food item Japan is the most famous for, and you can find it almost everywhere, and you just need fish and rice to make it. If you are coming to Kyoto, you probably are going to go and try some sushi, no matter whether it be served by a master chef at a small sushi restaurant with only counter seating, or on a conveyor belt. The way the sushi chefs make the sushi looks so cool that you probably want to try it yourself too, am I right? And that’s where the Sushi Seminar by the famous sushi restaurant chain Daiki Suisan comes in. Under Kyoto Tower, on the second floor of the shopping center Kyoto Tower Sando you can try your hands at sushi making. This is a fun activity for the whole family that you should definitely consider when coming to Kyoto!
Fresh and delicious ingredients
The experience includes great fresh sashimi pieces for you to put on the sushi, and also such favorites as Japanese omelet. They have three choices available for you to choose from, 8 pieces for 2,000 yen, 10 pieces for 2,500 yen, and 12 pieces for 3,000 yen. The prices don’t include taxes.
