Must do in Kyoto

Today I did a sushi making class with a lovely lady called Emika Inoa in her parents house. She showed me how to prepare the sushi rice, make the miso soup, and the seasonal veges. Then carefully roll the rice in your hands, and put raw fish on top. You can wrap seaweed around it too, there are no rules just go for it! And I have to say I think mine turned out awesome. Looks pretty but tasted even better. Good ingredients make all the difference 😍
