Masanori

My family has owned and run a sushi restaurant in Asakusa since 1901. I’m the restaurant’s third sushi chef, and I’m committed to continuing the tradition of authentic Edomae (Tokyo-style) sushi. Developed in the early 1800s by a chef in Edo (present-day Tokyo), the technique centers around bite-sized servings formed by hand.

Where you'll be

At first we will go to a grocery store near my house and I will explain you what ingredients we need for making sushi. We’ll practice the technique of sushi-making at my home in Asakusa. This older neighborhood has maintained a traditional atmosphere. The main attraction, Sensoji, the city’s oldest Buddhist temple, is a short walk away. After the workshop, you can stroll the temple grounds and the street-side parks.
