A Recent Review of this tour

We took a sushi class with Fukuko on April 13th and it was fantastic. Initially, we went to Tsukiji market where we selected ingredients for our meal. We also visited a pottery store (where we bought some really nice pieces) and a shrine. We then took a taxi to Fukuko's house where we cooked and ate until we were all VERY full. It was my daughters 16th birthday and Fukuko had beautiful cupcakes with a candle for her. It was a wonderful day- thank you!
