When he crossed the finish line, his face was beaming with a big smile which gave favorable and healthy impressions.

I had an amazing experience with my host Naoko-sensei. She was patient, sincere, and knew so much about the Japanese culture and cuisine, that I learnt so much about Tokyo in this 3 hour session than I had expected. It was my first time learning to make sushi, and Naoko-sensei made the whole experience so much fun - she saved our Maki sushi from breaking apart with her skilled fingers, while encouraging us and making us feel so accomplished at the same time. By the end of the lesson, Naoki Sensei had us feeling like we too could become sushi chefs! She told us interesting secrets about the ingredients used in the Japanese cuisine, and how they affect the final taste. At the end of the session, we sat down to enjoy the fruits of our labor - the sushi. Over lunch, Naoko-sensei told us about her childhood, her family, and we exchanged travel stories - the conversations over delicious Japanese food made us feel like we had made a friend in a new city. Many thanks to Anne from Arigato for giving us this experience - a little a piece of Tokyo which we were allowed to bring home to our family and friends!
