Highly recommend this Food & Drink tour. Our guide, Toshi, was excellent in explaining the various kinds of food that we had sampled. Our tour to the Tsukiji Fish Market was very interesting and our visit to the district of Asakusa was the highlight. A great place to walk, shop and eat with a visit to the Sensoji Buddist Temple. Overall, it was a great tour!
by Stuart & Doris (11/07/17)
For a peak (and taste) into all that is Japan - the efficiency, the energy, the precision, the passion for food - this tour of the fish market has it all. Our knowledgeable guide whisked us through the hustle and bussle of the inner and outer markets and treated us to the special tastes of Japanese food. We highly recommend it.

Great time! A must to visit....Sayoko was the best!

The tour was excellent. We learned a lot about the Japanese food culture. The guide was very nice, kind and knowledgeable.
by Marianna (09/27/17)
This tour was anticipated as we had experience with our local produce markets and were anxious to compare and learn. Our guide,Yuriko had excellent knowledge of the local shops and their owners, the layout of the whole area and the best places to visit. We enjoyed oysters,the best omelette, various offerings of merchants in the markets, were shown how to drink saki, enjoyed sweets. The sights and sounds of the markets were amazing. The highlight of the day was the lunch at a tiny but exquisite sushi restaurant where lunch was made in front of us with any question willingly answered.We would have no concern in recommending this tour and particularly Yuriko as a guide.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Tsukiji and Asakusa tour with our guide Yoshika. She met us at the Tsukiji Honganji Temple and expertly guided us through the temple before proceeding to the outer Tsukiji Market. We literally ate and bought our way through the outer market, tasting so many wonderful kinds of seafood and buying so many things to take home for ourselves and friends and family back home. We then went into the inner market to see what it looks like. Our tour was after the regular morning rush. I can’t imagine what it is like during the “rush hour”, and I know I preferred the non-busy time. We still got to see a lot, including the cutting up of several large tunas. We got to stop and take pictures without getting in people’s way. Also most of the stalls still had ample quantities of their wares on display and for sale. The last part of our tour was Asakusa. The shopping and food stalls leading up to the Senso-ji Buddhist temple are so much fun to see and browse. So colorful and animated. Inside the temple itself is a place of relative calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the market and Tokyo itself. Our guide made the tour fun and interesting. There were no questions that we posed that she did not have a knowledgeable answer to. And we made so many unplanned stops at shops selling things in the outer market of Tsukiji but Yoshika took it all in stride even though it must have played havoc with the normal schedule.

Yuko was our tour guide and she was fabulous! She was approachable, flexible, and more than happy to teach about the local cuisine. She walked us through the market (our favorite part) and took us to the best stands. We ended the tour at a dessert/tea shop that served dessert so good that the kids still talk about the sweet bread filled with ice cream. Yuko then gave us recommendations for restaurants and the best routes for transportation. Thank you for a wonderful day Yuko!

My tour guide Yukio is intelligent, fluent in English, and very concerned with my well-being. My tour was really informative about the operation of the Tsujiki Market and the enormous variety of food sold there. I learned a lot about Japanese cuisine, as the variety of food sold in the outer market goes well beyond fish. I highly recommend this tour.
by Steve (08/08/17)
We had a great tour! Sashimi was lovely and so knowledgeable. She took her time and shared with us so much interesting information. It was a great way to see the inner and outer fish market and Asakusa and a wonderful way to kick off our trip. Thanks!
by LynnJ (08/07/17)
We had an absolutely delightful tour of Tsukiji and Sensoji in Asakusa with our tour guide Yoko. Her English was perfect and having an English speaking tour guide allowed us to ask so many questions about all the new, wonderful and sometimes odd things (whale meat!) we saw at Tsukiji. We would never have seen and tried all the things we got to do try if we had visited on our own. We definitely feel like we had the VIP treatment and inside information during our tour. We had a great experience thanks to this tour and give it our highest recommendation.
by Tsuchiya Family (07/02/17)
Awesome tour of the markets. Learned so much about Japanese food and culture - was a wonderful way to spend a day off work in tokyo. Highly recommended.
by Ros (06/15/17)
An excellent introduction to the Tsukiji Fish Market and Asakusa - Yuki was wonderful, very patient when we browsed the market for fresh and dried fish. Highly recommended for newcomers to Tokyo!
by John.b (06/06/17)
Absolutely fabulous tour. Our guide, Hiro, was amazing and so knowledgeable. We had such a good day with her. The food was yummy, the people friendly. She gave us great directions for the inner fish market and met us where we were supposed to meet. Everything ran so well. We even spent more time with Hiro as she helped us get our train back to our hotel. And the bonus sake at 11am was wonderful as was the stand up sushi lunch. Would highly recommend this tour.
by Natalie-san (05/19/17)
Our Tour with Yukio was absolutely amazing! He was very informative about everything we got to see throughout the whole of the Fish Markets and Asakusa, and was more than happy to explain any questions we had while on the tour. The sushi we had after the fish markets was incredible, the best tasting sushi we have ever had! We are so glad we got to meet Yukio and have his expertise and knowledge while we walked around as we learnt many things that we wouldn't have had we just walked around on our own.

The tour was excellent, and Yuko was the perfect guide for our group of four. We had a lot of questions, and she answered them all with solid information and with a good sense of humor, when appropriate. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo. The choices of stops (and tastings) along the way were well-selected. Through them, and with Yuko's excellent guidance, we learned not only about Japanese cuisine, but Japanese history as well.

Tour was a great experience. Tae our guide was very nice and had a lot of experience regarding the fish market. Food was delicious.
by Erwin (05/07/17)
Wonderful tour. Thanks, Yuriko! I enjoyed that it was a small group, very informative, and all-inclusive.
by Jonathan_Massachusetts (04/30/17)
This tour is great! We really experienced the cultural side of Japan. Visiting temples, touring the fish market, even taking the subway was fun. We experienced new tastes and we will never forget the time we spent in Tokyo. This tour has been informative and has left a good impression on the people who live there. They are the kindest people we have come to meet. And I would take this tour again in a heartbeat.
by Natalie-san (04/18/17)
The tour was very enjoyable and my guide Yoshika was great. She was very knowledgable and I learnt a lot as we walked through Tsukiji outer and inner market and Asakusa. She was always looking to make the tour as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. It was very nice to sample a number of dishes in the market. I highly recommend this tour and my guide Yoshika.
by Nikhil (04/08/17)
My sister and I took the Tsukiji Fish Market and Ginza tour October 2016 and totally enjoyed it Our guide, Yeonmi, was extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Her passion and joy for what she does is quite evident . She was very patient and went out of her way to ensure that my sister and I had a wonderful experience. I will definitely contact this tour company again at my next visit.
by A Tasty and Educational Tour (03/25/17)
Amazing experience! Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo. Our guide Noriko was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions. She made the extra effort to ensure we were all comfortable and enjoying the tour. Thankyou Noriko!
by Ben (03/01/17)
We loved how this expert guided tour showed the unique rituals & sacred aspects of both Temples that we visited. The vast selections of produce in the historic Tsukiji Markets was incredible. Plenty of great photo opportunities :) Delightful food,sake,sushi tasting! The length of time walking & standing on our feet was actually only downfall..Both of us were just so physically exhausted by the end of afternoon, it was impossible to do anything else. The extra part - tour to Asakusa is just too much, better to finish with the Sushi lunch stop. So grateful for this experience, Arigato Gazimas

What a WONDERFUL tour Michiko took my sister and I on. We met another great couple from Boston. Michiko taught us so much about the Japanese culture, showed us how to wash our hands, described the difference between a temple and shrine, taught us how to properly pray at the temple which meant a lot to me as my mother's side of the family are Japanese and it was something I had never known how to do. We ate a lot so go hungry! The fish market was amazing to walk through as was going to Asakusa. I highly suggest taking this tour and hopefully you will get Michiko as your guide. She was fantastic!
