Had the tour with Kazu Kato - the tour was very enjoyable, informative and tasty! Kazu Katon was the best tour guide I've ever had - extremely professional, knowledgeable, friendly and absolutely went above and beyond.....to the point of showing us some other sites on his own time and with no charge, and also emailing us with extensive tips on Kyoto that turned out to be very useful. Would highly recommend the tour, and Kazu Kato! Darren

We liked the tour very much. We were a small group of 4 people. Our guide (Sorry I unfortunately forgot the name) was very personable, friendly and happy and laughed a lot. She responded to our questions and took her time. Overall a very interesting and exciting tour. Recommended !!!!!

This was my 2nd tour with Tokyo FooDrink Tour, and I will say that the Tsukiji Fish Market tour is well worth it! You'll have a much fuller experience with a local guide who knows the ins and outs of the market and the key stores/owners inside. i went with my family this time (previously, with friends) and we learned a lot about the history of the market, its operations, and tasted some great food along the way. Our guide, Yuriko-san, was amazing! She went above and beyond her responsibilities as a guide and even helped us find a particular gift item we were looking to bring back. An awesome experience and highly recommended for anyone visiting Tokyo!

What an excellent experience we had on our Tokyo Foodrink Tour Tsukiji with our awesome guide Yoko. She kept our tour on a leisurely and fun-filled pace, and her expert knowledge made it interesting and educational. The little bites along the way kept our taste buds and tummies satisfied, highlighted by a delicious nigiri sushi lunch at the tour's conclusion. Yoko was by far the best guide we've ever had on any walking tour anywhere. We would highly recommend this tour and Yoko to anyone!

Tomo! We had such a wonderful time on your fish market tour. I learned a lot and really enjoyed all the info you shared! And, of course, my belly was beyond full. Perfect size group with the other lovely couple from Singapore. Loved both the outer and inner market areas too - so much to see and learn. I feel lucky to be able to visit the old market before the move next year. What a fun day!!!! Thank you! Next time we visit your wonderful city you can count on us selecting another tour from your company.

The Tsukiji Fish Market was one of the top highlights of our visit to Japan! Our tour guide was knowledgeable, well-spoken, friendly, and engaging. We couldn't possibly say enough great things about our guide, Yuko! The fish market and local restaurant was so incredible, we decided to visit a second time before returning home to the United States. We were also fortunate enough to make friends with the other couple in our tour group. We ended up spending the entire afternoon together! Overall we had a great experience!!

Sachimi went out of her way to make our Tsukiji tour wonderful. She had perfect knowledge of the whole site and its history as well as facts about food and drinks around the market. Sachimi gave us extremely free time to walk around and taste food, browse and enjoy the hectic life in Tsukiji, never rushed us in any way. If you have the chance to ask, request Sachimi. You will not be disapointed!
by Gretar and Ingo (11/22/17)
Thank you for an amazing trip around the fish market of Yoshika, our guide. Yoshika, gave answers to everything we needed to know. She even told a lot about what we saw, bought and recommended tastings. Even our grand daughter, Liva, was allowed to taste oysters, she insisted, even though we did not think she liked it. Which she either could not. Yoshika was a really pleasant, caring and skilled guide. We were seen / experienced a lot, and was tired afterwards. Thank you for a very nice experience.

We had an amazing time touring Tsukiji fish market with Yukio. We're not usually tour group people but this experience was totally worth it, We would never have gotten the same perspective on the market if we had tried to do this by ourselves. The group was small, Yukio speaks excellent Engish and he had a tonne of insight and information to share as we walked through the market. We got the opportunity to sample a lot of different foods and the sushi lunch at the end of the tour was fun and delicious. I definitely recommend this tour if you are visiting Tokyo!
by Victoria (11/16/17)
First I would like to say that our tour guide today Sachimi was GREAT!!  She was very knowledgeable and very friendly and fun.  She answered all of our questions, even some not related to the tour.  Me and my mom and the other couple in the group all had fun with her.  I'm going to highly recommend this tour company and tell my friends who are going next year to ask for Sachimi.  Thank you for a great tour.  And again, please thank Sachimi for a wonderful time today. -Khoa

I booked Tsukiji fish market tour with Japan Wonder Travel. It was a great choice since my tour was guided by Sayuri (Lily). She was very knowledgeable about the market, an excellent guide with very good English. We had many stops at different fish vendors were tasted various delicious bites (included in the tour) anything from Japanese omelette to bonito flakes and of course great sushi and sake . The tour included going through all of the three markets at Tsukiji, the outer, middle and inner. Lily did an excellent job guiding and educating us about Japanese food at the market which included much more then fish and seafood. It is huge market and I do not see myself navigating through it without a guide. The tour ended with awesome sushi lunch at small place well known and recommended by locals. Great experience on my first trip to Japan.

Took the FooDrink Tour at the Tsukiji Fish Market on a very rainy day, but that didn't stop it from being absolutely fantastic! Definitely a worthwhile tour. I now have a new favorite sushi spot in Tokyo.

My family and I were greeted with the most welcoming and friendly guide for our Tsukiji Fish Market food/drink tour. The tour was well organised and our guide (Chinese speaking) was very attentive and knowledgable. She allowed for flexibility during the tour, and even helped us stop and do some shopping along the way. We tried a range of local cuisine and were even taught how to eat sushi properly! The menu was delicious! The tour was well worth it and I would highly recommend it as the Tsukiji Fish market was so big, it would have been so easy to get lost, and not get to explore the entire market.

Wonderfull!!! Highly recommend this friendly tour. Lots of laughs and a great time.
by John (11/08/17)
Highly recommended. The fish market was very interesting and while you could certainly go and walk around on your own, our guide showed us a lot we would have missed without her. The tour group was small (4 people in our case), which always makes a much better tour in my opinion, and we were able to ask plenty of questions, take extra time anywhere we wanted, and even learn some of the ins and outs of Japanese culture which was really helpful for the rest of our trip. A lot of delicious food (including a full sushi lunch) and even a sake tasting was included in the tour and made the tour cost seem like a downright bargain at that point. Unexpected highlights were tasting the best Japanese omelet I had on my 2 week trip and even getting a behind the scenes look at how they make the omelets, as well as seeing the attached vegetable market where I tasted the most absurdly delicious grapes (did not think a grape was capable of tasting like that, also, they were pricy and not included in the tour but I could not resist getting some). We did this tour on our first morning in Tokyo and walked away that afternoon feeling like the bar had already been set high for the rest of our time in the city.

A very nice and interesting Tour. I recommend it!
by Jean Luc (11/06/17)
My husband and I took part in the Tsukiji Fish Market tour and it was the highlight of our trip. Our guide, Toshi, was extremely knowledgeable and made the tour fun and interesting. We were able to see some behind the scenes action on several of the stops along the way and the food was absolutely delicious! This tour is the best way to experience this Tokyo landmark!
by Nichole (11/02/17)
Wonderful tour of the fish market with Sachi. She was very pleasant and quite informative. We tried all sorts of delicious foods in the market and she answered all of our (many) questions. The sushi lunch was also delicious. Thank you!
by Melissa & Connor (11/01/17)
Yuko-san was an excellent guide who took such good care of us! She was super helpful and patient and we couldn’t have asked for a better guide. We tried so many different things and the tour ended with a yummy sushi meal at a very local standing sushi bar (anywhere the locals frequent has to be good!).

Excellent friendly tour guide. Very knowledgeable and it was a pleasure to have her. I would highly recommend her to anyone visiting Tokyo.
by Peter (10/25/17)
It was a very good and interesting tour. An exelent way to visit and learn about the market.
by Simon (10/24/17)
Our Tsukiji fish market tour with Fumiko and Naoko was great!! They were friendly and professional and showed us all around the outer market and inner market and we were able to taste some yummy local Japanese food. The tour also included a very tasty sashimi lunch which my boyfriend loved. Thanks again for a wonderful visit to the market.
by Michelle (10/24/17)
We had the mot wonderful tour of the fish market with our tour guide Yuki. She was most informative and fun to be with. We would go with her on any tour

We went on the fish market tour in Tokyo and it was one of the best experiences of our 13 day trip. Yukio was an amazing tour guide, filled with so much knowledge of the market and the surrounding areas. He seems to be loved by everyone, and was great at getting us a ton of food samples. His welcoming and sweet energy was an added bonus. I would highly recommend Yukio's tour to anyone visiting Tokyo!
