We booked our Tsukiji tour for our first morning in Tokyo and were so glad that we did. We learned a lot of lessions that were helpful the rest of our trip (e.g. how to say, "that's delicious!"). It was so wonderful to have Eri there to guide us through the fish market. She pointed out interesting snacks, and even helped us order our first set of uni (it's not for everybody)!
Eri was a wonderful guide and we were so happy to be part of her tour. I'm thrilled that we got to tour tsukiji with her and the rest of our lovely tour mates.

Diese Tour war unsere zweite die wir gebucht haben. Wir sind über AirBnb auf Japan Wonder Travel gekommen, wo wir auch unsere erste Tour (Kyoto-Nishiki Market) gebucht haben. Auch bei dieser Tour wurden wir nicht enttäuscht und können nur Gutes berichten.
Buchung und Bezahlung waren problemlos. Weiters gab es bei der zweiten Buchung über JWT einen Rabatt von ca 1000 Yen (zu zweit).
Da wir bei unserer Tokyo Tour eine Überschneidung mit der Kyoto Tour beim Menüplan hatten, fragten wir das JWT Personal, ob sie uns für eine Speisen eine Alternative anbieten könnten. Unserem Wunsch wurde ohne Probleme nachgegangen.
Die Tour an sich war sehr interessant und wie auch in Kyoto gingen wir nicht hungrig nach Hause. Ein ganz ganz großes Lob, möchte wir unserem Guide "Sachimi" zollen - sie war wirklich super!
Alles in allem, waren wir sehr zufrieden und können Japan Wonder Travel wärmstens weiterempfehlen.
Aber lasst euch am Besten selbst davon überzeugen. :D

Thank you for such a wonderful morning yesterday. Our tour guide Yoshka helped us to see and experience so much more than we could have possibly done by ourselves. The food tastings were totally oishi and that magic bag of of hers never seemed to be empty always producing just what we needed at the right time. The market tour and temple visit was certainly more than we imagined
Thoroughly recommended tour

Had any amazing Tour of Tsukiji during our first day in Tokyo.
Our guide was personable and knowledgeable and we really enjoyed tasting the various foods available. We had our 13 year son who loves Sushi and he really enjoyed being able to try super fresh seafood right where the auctions take place. Would strongly recommend the tour.

We did this guided tour our last day in Tokyo and it was by far my favorite part of the trip. Our tour guide, a local named Tomo, was the sweetest woman and knew quite a few of the vendors, which led to a lot of free samples and behind the scenes looks at how the food was made. There were so many exotic, delicious kinds of food and I tried every sample available. The tour includes small bites along the way such as fresh ahi, a sweet omelette, fishcake, and sake (with an adorable souvenir wooden box), and concludes with a trip to a standing sushi bar where the chef picks out ~8 delicious types of fish for you to try. I would highly recommend doing this tour! Worth every penny!

We had a FABULOUS time at the Tsukiji Fish Market with Sachimi! She led us though the market with ease and with great explanations of what we were seeing. We consumed Japanese omelet, fried fish cake, fresh oyster (ahi if you don't eat oysters), cherries, Japanese tea, Katsuobushi, sake and sushi. I highly recommend this tour for the first time and returning Tsukiji visitors, it makes a big difference when you have a seasoned shopper guiding you! Thank you Sachimi! :)

The tour is deep and wonderful. You could see different aspect of the market. The guide is passionate and love to share the story of the place. A great experience to have.

Our guide Nanako was great! She explained all sorts of things about the market and -most importantly- knew the best stalls to eat at. The sushi I had in her tour was hands-down the best sushi I had in 12 days in Japan. I did the tour with my mom and two sisters. What we loved the most was that Nanako provided a genuine experience. She wasn't just telling you about the market, she was in the market with you. She also adjusted the tour for the things we were interested on (e.g. I love ceramics and she found the best stall for that). The tour was worth every penny.

It was a really great where we learn a lot about the Japanese food and culture.
We also had the change to try the best sushi and other local foods.
The tour guide was really nice and make us feel really comfortable.

We had a great time on this tour with Toshi! The fish market is huge, so having a knowledgeable tour guide was so helpful in order to see the entire market and learn about the different areas. We also had the opportunity to try many different kinds of foods which are unique to Japan. I would highly recommend this for anyone who is planning a trip to the Tsukiji Fish market!

Mari was fantastic. Fun and informative tour. Tour really isn't the right word - it was like a knowledgeable friend took us around the market
by Debbie & Mark (06/04/18)
Tomo was great and informative. I'm glad I got this first run if the market with her.

Yukiko was such a wonderful guide and took great care of our enrire family, from 2 years old to 71 years old! As we were a large group of 7, this surprisingly became a very comfortable private tour. Yukiko navigated us through the very busy outer markets, where we enjoyed various delicious street food. And we also got to experience the more exclusive, inner market. What an eye opener for both young and old!
Thank you very much for a memorable half day tour of Tsukiji!

Great start to our Japan trip! Got up early our first morning to what ended up being one of the highlights of our trip. Our excellent guide Mami showed us around the fish market and gave us lots of information about food culture and Japan in general. In addition, everything we tasted was delicious. Bring cash to buy whatever catches your eye while browsing the market. Highly recommended.
by Alex M (05/23/18)
My daughter and I had a superb tour with our guide Yoshino. It was a highlight of our trip to Japan. She spoke excellent English and guided us through the different parts of the fish market, with tastes of different foods followed by a really nice Sushi lunch. We felt it was one of the best investments made in our trip. I highly recommend it.

Nous avons passé un excellent moment avec Tae au fish market. Elle est vraiment très gentille et généreuse. Elle a su adapter la visite à nos goûts et nous avons appris beaucoup sur la culture Japonaise! Excellente activité à faire en début de voyage au Japon!
Prenez un petit-déjeuner très léger car on commence à manger dès le début du tour ;)

Sorry this has taken a while! Monica and I just want to thank you so much for taking us around the Fish Market and helping us enjoy such fantastic, delicious food along the way! We are particularly tankful (and impressed) that you took the time to research and advise us on the Sumo training session in Ryogoku. We managed to walk to the venue and our jaws dropped in awe when we were shown the entrance and looked down upon the magical sight. A true highlight that we didn’t think was possible.
