Try making makizushi (rolled sushi) at Sengoku-zushi, a local sushi shop operating since the early Showa Period. The store’s specialty is hakozushi (box-pressed sushi) but in this workshop, the owner will teach you how to make the more common makizushi sushi roll. The main ingredients are atsuyaki (thick sweet omelet), kanpyo (dried gourd shavings), and mitsuba parsley which are all common ingredients for the makizushi of our region. After the workshop, you’re welcome to either eat your sushi at the shop or take it with you to enjoy later!

Sengoku-zushi is a local sushi shop whose main business is catering and take-out. The shop’s quaint building has preserved its early Showa period character which has helped it become a local landmark. Hakozushi (box-pressed sushi) is the shop’s long beloved specialty favored by both local residents as well as visitors to the famous nearby Mii-dera Temple. Seasonal fish such as hamo (Japanese conger) in summer and sawara (Spanish mackerel) in winter are paired with other ingredients for a perfect harmony to delight your taste buds.
What is hakozushi?
This square-shaped sushi is made by layering sushi rice and minced or sliced fish in a wooden box mold. Also known as oshizushi (pressed sushi) or Osaka-zushi. Associated with our surrounding Kansai region, hakozushi is one of our local comfort foods.
