Ehomaki Sushi Making Tour
Setsubun is the day before the first day of spring in the Japanese solar year and the day Japanese eat "Ehomaki" - festive temaki sushi rolls.
In this unique custom, you eat a thick rolled sushi called ehomaki whole and in silence, while facing the direction that is said to be lucky for the year. Lets try it and bring ourselves good luck!
You will work in a group, and moms and grandmas from Myoko's local cooking club will help you make an original Ehomaki. During the cooking and eating we will also learn and experience other Japanese customs during the Setsubun Festival. Let's celebrate "Setsubun" like a local does!
