TOKYO



Tsukiji is a world-famous market and it is called “Kitchen of Tokyo”. A part of the market (Inner market) where they used to hold tuna auctions was relocated to Toyosu in 2018. But don’t worry, the outer market stays open with the same passion in Tsukiji! There are about 400 stores in the outer market and you will encounter many interesting ingredients and foods while walking through the market.

Our Tokyo FooDrink Tour will take you to some vibrant stores selling the best quality foods in the outer market. You can try a variety of Japanese foods ranging from finger foods to delicacies. Our knowledgeable guides will tell you a lot of tips about Japanese culinary culture during the tour. We also visit the small wholesale area and show you many kinds of seafoods and foods. Don’t miss to taste a fresh tuna there too! In the end of the tour, we go to the local Sushi restaurant and enjoy some fresh Sushi. Get ready to learn some facts about Sushi there!

Tsukiji Market could be overwhelming but your guide knows everything. Follow the guide and let’s eat and drink like Japanese local!

Cannot say enough good things about our tour with Japan Wonder Travel and our guide Akiko. She was so knowledgable and also helped us taste all the market had to offer. I am really not one to do tours, especially of a market but genuinely felt that the tour deepened my understanding of both the market and Japanese cuisine. Highly recommend this tour!!!
by Mary (02/11/20)
Sanae, our tour guide was excellent. She was witty, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Loads of information about the uniqueness of Japanese food. Guided us to places, on our own, we would just pass by. Sushi prepared in front of us,eaten standing, in a small shop, was sushi heaven . Fresh savory sea food, great. Thank you, Sanae, for a wonderful experience. Nap and Luz

The tour was great and the guide was super helpful with explaining everything we were trying. It's a great way to see the city and understand a bit about the food culture, highly recommend!
by JCNTraveller (02/03/20)
More than a walking tour of a fish market, this is a wonderful way to get insights into the Japanese people, traditions and way of life. My guide Kyoko was so generous in making this an experience I will cherish and adapting my interests into the stalls we visited. Highly recommended
by Sandi (02/01/20)
I really enjoyed the tour. Tokyo was very knowledgeable about the market, and about Japanese fish culture. The tasting s and sushi lunch were excellent. This tour was one of the hi-lights of my Tokyo trip.

Our tour guide, Fumiko, is the best! We were not expecting anything on this tour but she gave us an amazing tour of the Tsukiji market. She allowed us to experience the market as a local, shopped things like a tourist and even showed us one of the best wagyu shops there. Definitely worth to get this tour and have Fumiko as a tour guide.
by Gian (01/30/20)
It was such a memorable moment joining the Tsukiji Tour with Japan Wonder Travel. Naoko-san, our tour guide, is really warm and cheerful. In Tsukiji,we tried the fresh tuna, tamagoyaki, and fish cake. Overall, we really enjoyed spending 3 hours there with Naoko-san and friends. It's worth remembering:)
by Ajeng (01/27/20)
We absolutely loved our tour with Mazda as our travel guide. Not only was she full of interesting history and facts but was a lot of fun and enjoyed our sense of humor as keen aussie anglers. There was so much food and worth every cent. I would highly recommend this tour.

Mari gave an excellent tour, it was one of the highlights of my trip! It lasted about 3 hrs and included enough food so I was full by the end! Starts with a leisurely tour through the whole market, stopping a few times to try Japanese omelette, fresh tuna sashimi, sake, seafood Pancake ( but I think menu changes from tour to tour), then finished at this amazing local sushi restaurant. There were only 3 of us on the tour which made the experience even more personalized and enjoyable because we could talk with Mari about her life and experience. She took us through the whole market and was patient with us as we stopped to buy some items. She took some great photos that were then sent to us after the tour. As an American and first timer in Asia and Japan, this was awesome introduction to some of the delicious Japanese food staples. I just wish I had taken the tour near the beginning of my trip and not on my last day because I was so excited to eat more sushi after this tour. I also recommend trying a giant fresh raw oyster (largest I’ve ever seen) while on the tour; it’s not included but was sooo good. If you do it with Mari that is a plus too, she is such a knowledgeable and fun guide.
by Meg (01/20/20)
Yoshi is a terrific guide, full of detailed information and amazing facts about Japanese food traditions, seafood and more. If you want to know everything from how to select your favourite part of the tuna through to where Yoko Ono has coffee in Tokyo, Yoshi will know! One piece of advice: do not eat before you go. We had sushi, sashimi, sake, egg roll, fresh fruit and so much more all included in the cost of the tour. A terrific morning in Tokyo.
by Ellen (01/15/20)
We really enjoyed the tour. It was a great way to experience the market and sample some wonderful food and drinks. The tour was excellent for families. Our tour guide, Mazda, was kind, friendly and knowledgeable. We recommend this fun, interesting tour!
by DS (01/10/20)
Tour was informative, organized, and eloquently given. Yuko was an excellent guide and she paced our journey through the fish market perfectly. She was easy to talk with and ask questions to, and her thorough knowledge of each stop made the experience that more informative. Three hours flew by..
by Soojin (01/09/20)
It´s been a great pleasure to know our guide, Mrs. Yuki! The Tsujiki Market experience is a MUST SEE in Tokyo, for sure! And if you have a guide like Yuki, It will be great. She taught us so many cultural and gastronomic things, that one visitor would never learn on your own. Great spot, for those who like to feel the city and its people warm atmosphere. Great fresh sashimi, sake and much more. Thank You, guys, we really love to be there!

The tour was WONDERFUL! We had so much fun and you were such a superb guide! Arigato!
by Alan Wieder (01/06/20)
This was one of the best experiences on our trip to Japan, and we recommend it to everyone with an interest in Japan's food & culture. Our guide, Yuki, was very knowledgable & savvy, and made sure we sampled all the delicacies on offer. If you are in Tokyo & have the time, this will be a morning well spent. Excellent!
by Jim from Astoria (01/02/20)
It was good and informative. Learned a lot about the Japanese psyche. More power. Very crowded at Tsukiji before a long holiday. So much activity in the market.
by Michael Gonzalez (12/31/19)
Overall great time! The tour went really well and was well paced. Yoshi did a great job of showing us around even with all the crowds.
by Jack Stanton (12/30/19)
Loved our tour guide she was very fun and knowledgeable.
by Great tour! (12/28/19)
It was an excellent tour! Very insightful. And it was only made possible because we have a very good guide with us: Sanae-san! Thank you so much for bringing us around and sharing with us the unique culture of Japan! Not only did we enjoy the great food, you made the tour very educational as well! We hope we can see you again if we join a Japan Wonder Travel tour in the future!
by Lee Joyce (12/28/19)
This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Tokyo. Akiko is an amazing guide who goes above and beyond to ensure her guests feel welcome and immersed in the energy of Tsukiji market. Her local knowledge and passion for the culture can certainly be felt. I would highly recommend this tour, and if you are lucky, you can experience this with Akiko!
by Kathy C (12/27/19)
We had Akiko take us on our tour. We really enjoyed it!! There were only 4 of us on it so we got the opportunity to ask lots of questions and take our own pace. Great tastings - highlights were tuna sashimi, egg omelete and sushi meal. Would highly recommend. Thanks Akiko!!!
by Lyoung (12/25/19)
We had a wonderful time with our great tour guide Hoshi! We enjoyed learning about the foods and culture of Japan, and sampling some great food. Highly recommended!
by Jack (12/25/19)
Excellent tour. Well worth the time and money. Toshi was a brilliant guide and we enjoyed our morning very much. We would not have got as much out of our visit to the Fish Market if we hadn’t done the tour. Domo arigato gozaimasu Toshi-san. Oishikatta desu.
by Calvert (12/23/19)
We had an enjoying morning tour at the Tokyo Fish Market Tour@Tsukiji which is led by one of the wonderful guide - Lily. This tour not only visited the fish market and know its local food and drink such as egg omelette, tuna sasumi, fried fish cake but also the standing sushi bar as well as Sake wine tasting. We even meet some of the friendly and helpful food sellers as well as sharing some jokes and fun as if we are old friends and have not see for many years. Overall, we had an enjoyable and fun morning and I definitely recommend this tour to any one who have not been to the Tsukiji Market. The guide is knowledgeable and able to explain well in English.
