    The tour was informative and entertaining at the same time. Thank you Kiyoka.

    We absolutely loved this tour! Yuriko was such a fabulous guide. We loved learning about the Tsukiji fish market and trying so many new foods. We also had a blast perfecting our sushi making skills. Definitely one of our highlights on our trip!

    Wonderful tour of fish market and we enjoyed making sushi. Many thanks!

    Lisa and I had a wonderful experience touring the market and learning to make Sushi Our guide was brilliant and very very knowledgeable about food and the market We had a great time and was one of the hi lights of our too short stay in Tokyo Be warned lunch is very filling !! Highly recommended

    A great morning tour with many interesting things pointed out at the fish market. The sushi making was fun and delicious. Our guide was very informative and interesting. Thanks.

    We had a fabulous time on our Tsukiji Fish Market Tour and Sushi Making Experience! We actually somehow got the start time mixed up and were nearly two hours late for our booking. With one simple phone call, we were able to schedule a meeting point, jump right in on the tour, and still be able to make our sushi for lunch (the part we were most interested in!). Thank you so much to all at Japan Wonder Travel for making this happen for us!! Your flexibility and outstanding committment to your clients is very much appreciated!!
    by Stacey (11/06/19)
    Took the tour with my wife and another couple. It was a nice sized group with only one additional couple participating. Our guide, Yoshi, was knowledgeable and very friendly. She took us through the entire market, pointed out some of her favorite items, and answered all our questions. She was also our translator at the sushi making class, which was the icing on the cake. We each got to make our own sushi lunch. Highly recommend!
    by SDCrew (11/02/19)
    This was a wonderful tour. Our guide Tak was very informative and interesting insight into Japanese culture, through the fish market. I thoroughly recommend this tour, fantastic experience.
    by Lin (10/24/19)
    An excellent introduction to Tsukiji, which would be bewildering without local insight. We made the mistake of having a full breakfast; skip it so you can better enjoy all of the samples your guide offers! We loved our guide, Yuko, who was particularly good at understanding individual needs and making sure everyone had a chance to sort their shopping and eating desires. Getting out of Tsukiji as it reaches peak crowds to the sushi-making venue at an upscale place in Ginza is a great move. The class is in a beautiful room, very comfortable, with all of your needs catered for. (Plenty of Japanese atmosphere but you don't have to sit on the floor.) Two small criticisms: this is more a "how to assemble" sushi rather than how to make it, as there's no real instruction on how to choose and slice the fish or how to make the rice, which as I understand are the hardest parts; and, several tours come together for the sushi making but all the individual guides do the translations for the sushi chef to their group. While I appreciate the customer service ethos they're going for, this created quite a babble and it would have been better if just one person translated into English and other guides quietly helped individuals going wrong with their sushi technique. These are small quibbles, however, with an excellent morning and a super lunch. You won't need much dinner and will be challenged to finish the feast that you put together for yourself!

    The tour was a surprise for my husband on his birthday, and it was amazing. First the tour at the fish market, when our guide explain the food and the Japanese culture and after the cooking class with the chef that was very nice and happy, plus the food was delicious. I really recommend this tour!
    by Tatiana (09/09/19)
    It’s our first time taking the sushi making class - very special experience and we love it! The tour guide speaks very fluent English, it’s interesting to listen to him talking about Japanese culture and history as we walked around the fish market.

    對於築地各店家特色及當地寺廟歷史介紹均很詳細,且親切待人宛若舊友般,一日遊行程留下極佳印象,真心感謝導遊KaZU桑!
    by KaZu (08/18/19)
    I had a great time and saw and tasted things at on the market tour that I would have missed on my own. Sushi lesson was great too. Lots of good tips which I can go home and practice. Generous with both sushi and information. Thank you very much.
    by Mari (07/29/19)
    This was our best tour. The Tsukji fish market products and prices are like no other in the world. Enjoyed a lot of tastings and then of course struggled with the sushi making. It was all great fun. Best of all was our very knowledgeable, energetic and loving guide Itsuku. When the children needed rest, she found us a place to sit. Always taking our photos. Finally, Itsuku walked us right up to our metro which was completely away from her destination. Well done Itsuku, the guide makes the tour.
    by Cawas (07/17/19)
    Loved it! Very informative, fun and you get a feel for the fish market. Sushi course is loads of fun!
    by Franco (06/22/19)
    We both enjoyed the market tour, it was relaxed and informative + lots of free samples, and making sushi was great fun - so much food. Chirio was a great guide.
    by Georgia and Charlie (06/17/19)
    The tour was a great cultural experience. Yuko was very patient and gave us a very good background on the market’s history, the typical types of products and food. The sushi making course was very fund and even though it was very basic it gave us a good feeling on what this art consists of ! Highly recommend the tour if you are into food and culture.
    by Foodies (05/31/19)
    We had a wonderful time. Skip was a wonderful guide. This was a highlight of our trip to Japan
    by Metzmom (05/28/19)
    The tour was excellent, and extremely informative ! As another guest didn’t turn up, I had Pretty much a personal tour by Kiyoka. She was knowledgable, very friendly and enthusiastic and enjoyed learning about the Tsukiji area and it’s surroundings. The sushi making experience tour was also quite an experience, being taught by a master sushi chef of 30 plus years, it was an eye opening experience ! Definitely recommended to those who enjoy food and history!
    by Karlson (05/25/19)
    We had such a great time on this sushi tour. Great for a team event, team bonding while getting a cultural experience simultaneously. We also had great tour guides to help guide our experience. Highly recommended!
    by Sushi Lover (05/14/19)
    Excellent tour! Great guide. She took extra care to help us with our bags that we’d left in locker at train station. Note - tour starts and ends at different places. Would recommend this tour. Sushi making was fun and entertaining but best park was the guide.
    by LisaRick (04/24/19)
    We absolutely loved our Tsukiji fish market tour and sushi making class! Our guide Tak was brilliant and provided so many insights into Japanese culture and everyday life. Tak went out of his way to get to know each of our 9 group members, and was fantastic with our 2 kids. I highly recommend doing a tour combined with the sushi making class. Our head chef was delightful and we had so much fun! We got to make and eat so much delicious food, we all came away full and happy (and ready for a nap).
    by JDV89 (04/22/19)
    Our Tsukiji Old Outer Market Tour and Sushi Roll Cooking was amazing. Our tour guide Asaka did a great job and showed us a lot of special japanese food during the tour incl. a fugu sashimi, that we have ask for and wanted to try. The Sushi Master was excellent and the whole lunch was gorgeous
