  • Activities: Hire a sushi chef or “Itamae” for the night to show you the ropes, and help with the sushi party menu. Throw a make your own sushi party, and have a work station set up for each guest or couple. Gather the necessary supplies, which include bamboo sushi mats, bamboo rice paddles, a knife, chop sticks for eating, and ingredients for the meal.
