Things to Do: Shinjuku – How to become a sushi master in 8 weeks

Become a sushi master with a $5,000 discount! The Tokyo Sushi Academy is giving a discount of 420,000 yen ($5,400) off its eight-week master course right now.

Blog2863wideaYou'll spend the months of February and March learning cooking techniques, sushi knives, and about each kind of sushi fish in particular.

Even with the discount, it's still not cheap. You'll pay a total of about $6,000 for registration, food costs, knives, and a uniform. 

But if you want to go from zero to hero in sushi, you'd be hard-pressed to find better. Across eight weeks, you'll get to learn things like:

  • How to sharpen and maintain knives
  • How to make sushi rice
  • How to make nigiri sushi
  • Slicing from fillet
  • Thin rolls
  • Individual fish techniques (such as for salmon, tuna, etc.)
  • Vegetables
  • Other Japanese cuisines (tempura, soups, etc.)
  • Seasonality

At the end, you'll get a certificate showing that you're a trained sushi master.

There's an application process with an interview if you want to qualify for the big discount, so head to the link below to apply.
