The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.

Take home a sushi experience that will give you the skills to replicate a bit of Japan after you have returned home! Kana and her team have put together a beautiful and fun sushi making lesson, set in a serene space, located in a lovely residential neighborhood. Kana was a delightful and very engaging host who was eager to share some of her culture and just as interested to learn more about ours. You will leave feeling very full once you’ve eaten your creations but you can easily walk it off by visiting some beautiful temples nearby. Our teens loved the experience and are looking forward to trying out their new skills at home!

Terrific! Kana is a wonderful teacher who not only teaches you bout Sushi, but gets to know you, and you get to know her. Great to interact with a local. In a nice house in a residential area. We’d made sushi before, but as we discovered, not correctly. Go hungry - plenty of sushi to eat!

This class is a must do when coming to Japan. Our teacher Kana was a lovely host, so welcoming. The class was 6 people & we got to make nigiri and temaki. It was lovely to learn about the culture and taste the fresh fish straight from nishki market. One of the best experiences for a good price as well. This is the best value for money compared to other sushi classes

What a wonderful experience with Kana! They are so welcoming. You learn to make Nigiri and makizushi. She was informative of Japanese culture and shared interesting facts. The fish was fresh and the sushi we made tasted great(i did make it with love). The gift bag at the end was the icing on the cake. Chopsticks and stand, sushi bamboo rolling mat and recipe for the rice. I looked into other sushi making classes but this was the best by far!

Thank you for a great introduction to sushi making. My 11yr old son and I enjoyed making (and eating) the two different types of sushi. Each step was explained well and carefully supervised. The studio was light, airy and clean. We were happy with our gift at the end. A nice change from visiting temples.
Tip- leave plenty of time to get there so that the class can start on time.

Dear babyeel, Thank you so much for the kind review of your sushi making experience. It was such a pleasure to meet you both and you both did a fantastic job making sushi as can be seen in the photo. And thank you for your tip! With both Fushimi Inari Shrine and Tofuku-ji Temple nearby there is no shortage of wonderful sightseeing to be done in the neighborhood if one arrives early! Thank you again for choosing Atelier Sushi during your stay in Kyoto. Kana

Fantastic experience!
Kana and her team were really nice. The space is beautiful, high quality ingredients and friendly atmosphere.
Kana explained some facts about Kyoto, Japan and sushi during the workshop, which was a bonus.
We also had a nice gift at the end of the session.
Can’t recommend it enough!

This was simply the pinnacle of our experiences in Japan. I'm on a trip with my 13 year old daughter, and we just smiled all the way through the class. Kana and her team were amazing. So much fun making delicious food in clean and happy environment. Don't have a big meal beforehand as you make plenty of yummy sushi to eat at the end.

Such a wonderful experience, thank you! We arrived early and were welcomed warmly and enjoyed a chat before starting, everyone was so friendly and chatty. We learned lots about Japan ans really felt like we got to know the team a little, as a previous reviewer said it feels like being in someone’s home and very comfortable. We prepared two types of sushi, learning how to break up the rice and roll and cut the rolls. A lovely little added bonus is the little gift at the end that will help with sushi making at home, and a lovely momento of Japan! We can’t wait to try making sushi at home and already looking at buying a rice cooker! Thank you so much Kana and team for an unforgettable experience!

This class was a true highlight during our Japan trip. The staff is incredibly friendly and we learnt a lot about making sushi as well as the Japanese culture. Come hungry - you will get to enjoy a lot of tasty food!
It felt like we were visiting friends in their home, and we would come back again in a heartbeat! Thank you Kana + team for such a special experience!
