Create Sushi Masterpieces with Fish Fresh


Learn how to make festive temari-sushi in a merchant’s house where geisha still perform


Kanazawa is a city bursting with tradition, and its proximity to chill ocean waters means not only high-quality local rice, but access to an abundance of fresh seafood. Take advantage of these superb regional ingredients by joining a sushi-making experience.

Your cooking course, hosted by In Kanazawa House, is English-friendly, and will immerse you in Ishikawa culture. The friendly cooking expert will greet you at the venue, which is located in a merchant’s house boasting about 100 years of history and which still hosts geisha performances. Using an array of seasonal, locally sourced ingredients, your cooking expert will teach you about temari-sushi, a beautiful type of sushi that resembles a small ball. You can choose your own toppings, including meat, seafood, and vegetables, all fresh from the local markets, so anyone can make gorgeous sushi masterpieces that they are sure to enjoy, whether vegetarian or meat-lover (or anything in-between).
