Cooking Class Information

Kazarimaki sushi roll (Art Sushi Roll or Decoration sushi roll) has evolved in their own unique way from the technologies of Saikusushi for which the topping items of Edomae-nigiri-sushi have been creatively used and Futomaki Sushi (Thick roll of sushi) which is one of the local cuisines of Chiba prefecture.

In the world of sushi industry newly developed samples of Saiku sushi often came to be released in technology contests of sushi from the beginning of Showa period onward. The sushi rolls such as Saiku maki (roll) and Kawari maki (unique roll) were among them. They had designs such as flowers, some patterns and family crests, and Japanese traditionally classical designs.

Those designs were originally of their regular customersʼ family crests and patterns and were specially popular among craftsmen and workmen in Kyoto. We can see many of them recorded in the magazines or newsletters of the unions of workers of those days.

Kazari Sushi or Art sushi roll refers to various creative types of sushi such as Nigiri Sushi (hand-formed sushi with a topping of seafood, etc), Chirashi Sushi (vinegared-rice with assorted sashimi), sushi roll, and Oshi-zushi (sushi rice and other ingredients pressed in box or mould) and Bo-Sushi (rod-shaped sushi topped with large slice of fish) that are offered in sushi restaurants.

Kazari zushi or Art sushi roll, highlighting the atmosphere in event sites enriching tables at parties as it is so beautiful in appearance and also delicious, is appreciated by customers. When you say "Kazarimaki zushi or Art sushi roll", it means "Futomaki zushi or Thick roll of zushi" among these creatively designed ones.

It has been evolving day by day as the sushi roll that is pleasing to the eye and also delicious to eat, made with various designs such as modern ones of motifs based on nature and ones of animal characters that are popular among children.

Hi,I'm Aya, owner of SAKURA.
I was born in Kyoto 1967,raised in Kobe.
As you know,Kyoto is very famous historical city as world heritage but also the Heart of Japanese culture.
People in Kyoto are carefully protecting the culture of Kyoto.
Many tourists come to Kyoto from all over the world, and it is increasing year by year.
According to that, the number of experience classes which teaching Japanese culture are continues to increasing.
But there are also many shops where amateurs are teach you.
They are doing that only for the money.
Of course,they are not introduce the correct Japanese culture.
My husband and me went to the class about various Japanese culture from when we were children.
Since I was 40 years old I studied business administration at the graduate school and got a master's degree.
at least,now, I can do the work I wanted to do.
My husband is a descendant of [Ihee Ito] who developed a cherry tree "Somei Yoshino".
It is the most famous kind of cherry tree in the world.
He was a rich trader in the Edo period, and worked for Shogun [House Tokugawa] as an advisor of their garden.
Me and my husband are very proud of that.
I would like to let you know the right culture of Japan with having fun time with you!
Please come to our place if you come to Kyoto.
I am looking forward to meeting you.
