    I stumbled across this company while searching for Tokyo tours, and wow, did I luck out. Yukio was a knowledgeable and enjoyable tour guide, not to mention an all-around great guy. For example: after the food tour, he offered to guide me to the sumo tournament going on while I was in town. As a newby to Tokyo and its subway system, I was so appreciative. If you find yourself looking for a Tsukiji food tour, book with this company. You won't be disappointed.

    An absolutely wonderful time touring the fish market with our warm and knowledgable hostess Asaka, followed by excellent sushi, and instruction where I actually learned! A true highlight of our trip to Japan. I'd be sure to book another tour with Asaka and the company when I hopefully return!

    Our tour guide was Skip. He was very knowledgable and incredibly nice to travel with. He shared a lot of information about the history of the fish market, as well as good shops to visit. The sushi-making experience was fantastic. All of the people leading the class were wonderful and the food was fantastic. Overall, Japan Wonders made a special occasion for our family and all three of our children (yrs 15, 12, and 8) thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was one of the highlights of our visit to Tokyo!

    Tomo was an excellent guide. She was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We learned alot about Tsukiji fish market and we tried delicacies we would not have tried without Tomo. She taught us about the inner workings of the Tsukiji and about the different types of food to eat and buy in the market. We would not have enjoyed visiting Tsukiji as much without Tomo. The sushi making experience at the restaurant in Ginza was excellent also. The chef and staff were very nice and enjoyable. We learned about the history of sushi and technique for making sushi. It was also very enjoyable to eat. We highly recommend this tour!!

    by Makeupmark (07/25/18)
    Truly amazing experience. Thanks so much to our guide Naoko, she made this an unforgettable experience. Spent a lot of time with us to explain the history, give us a background in the fish market, and made sure we were enjoying to our liking. Very polite and courteous. The tour was truly beyond my expectations and we had a great time and learned a lot. Would love to come back to Tokyo! Thank you!
    by Yasir (07/19/18)
    This tour was fabulous. Walking around the fish markets with a guide is a must. Learning how to make sushi was a fun experience.
    by Gavdon (07/07/18)
    Going to the Tsukiji fish market and the sushi making tour was great. Our guide, Ari San was knowledgeable and friendly. The market gave us a chance to explore the culinary treats that Japan has to offer. The sushi making class was informative and is a must for anyone who loves sushi. We made nigiri and sushi; there was a lot of food, so be sure to have an empty stomach. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves making food and learning about it.
    by Mcheng (07/05/18)
    We had an excellent tour with Ms Asaka. Having been to the Tsukiji market previously without a guide, there were certain finer details Asaka shared which made the visit more meaningful. My 3 teenagers certainly get to observed and taste the big tuna fish. We throughly enjoyed the sushi making experience and would highly recommend this as it will certainly ensure you appreciate the skills involved in the art of preparing the sushi.
    by AdrianSg (06/21/18)
    We had a wonderful time during the tour with Yuko as our guide. She was on time, answered all our questions and made the entire experience enjoyable. She is funny and very knowledgeable. We were a family of five and learned a lot about the fish market and nearby interesting places to see.
    by Srini (06/13/18)
    WE had two great guides. They were professional and gave great tours. They made sure we had a great experience. It was fun taking the sushi class.

    Fumito was our first host. He was clearly well-connected to many vendors in the outer fish market and we enjoyed many samples. He shared much knowledge with us. He is very experienced - an excellent guide. I highly recommend him. Hiro was our guide for the inner fish market and our sushi making experience. She walked us to the sushi making experience and helped us locate specific shops and shared her knowledge of the various shops. This was worth a great deal to us. It enabled us to shop more efficiently in the days to come. She was so friendly and knowledgeable. I highly, highly recommend her and this entire experience. The company clearly wants to provide value to its clients and I appreciated that so much. Their service was amazing.
    by Donna (05/30/18)
    The tour was a very pleasant and unique experience! Our guide Sammy was very energetic. She was able to answer all of our questions (especially the silly ones from my dad). Inside the market was the highlight as we got to see the famous big tunas. Would recommend this tour to others as the ending (sushi making) was personal and loads of fun!
    by Jake Chan (05/18/18)
    Great, just great. Yeonmi, our guide, was attentive, witty, smart, generous. Lots of facts, anecdotes, tastings. And the sushi-making course was a great way to finish the half day at the fish market.
    by Jan-san (05/10/18)
    Mari est une guide très attentionnée,à l'écoute qui nous a fait découvrir avec passion et beaucoup d'humour tout ce qu'il faut connaître pour apprécier au mieux la culture culinaire du pays au soleil levant. Le cours a été très instructif et détaillée et nos sushis étaient du coup délicieux. Je recommande à 100% !

    Excellent trip!!

    What a fun event! The family (2 adults, 2 teenage boys) met our guide and after arrival of two others joining us, started the tour. We went to the Shrine near where we met which was interesting but not on topic—we had already done the temple and shrine tours. We then spent an hour+ in the market outside the main fish market—very interesting and with a wide variety of things to see and taste. Come with an open mind (and palate) as some of the flavors and textures were not those that I was expecting or used to—lots of fun stuff to buy too, snacks, knives, accessories and nori to name a few. We then went inside the main market which was in the process of clean up and closing (the only time tourists can go in). Amazing how large and clean the facility is. We got a chance to see many types of fish including some HUGE tuna. Just awesome. We also were given the opportunity to view the vegetable market but our group was pretty much done with walking around, so we opted to go on to the sushi making class. The class (at a restaurant in Ginza) was a lot of fun and very informative. We had made sushi at home but learned many techniques to make it easier and more presentable. The staff (our guide was Jun) was friendly and very accommodating. We highly recommend the tour for sushi lovers, including those with teenagers!
    by Jeff in California (04/18/18)
    The tour was amazing! Our tour guide was so nice and informative throughout! She answered all our questions and curiosities, as well as encouraging us to ask about anything. I would definitely recommend anyone who is traveling to Japan to book this tour! Sophia
    by Sophia (04/17/18)
    We had such an amazing time on this tour! It made all the difference to have Yukio there, who knew exactly where to go and the history of the fish market. It was also a blast making sushi afterwards! A perfect experience in Tokyo! Definitely recommend you to take this tour and class. It is well worth it! Thank you to Japan World Travel & Yukio :)
    by Courtney (04/14/18)
    We had market tour and sushi cooking class with Asaka san. She is so kindness and friendly, full of educated Japanese food. We saw many different fresh and dried food. Japanese food is really amazing !!! We been to outer market then inner market after that took taxi with Asaka to sushi workshop in Ginza. Sushi workshop is the best.You got individual cooking set and shared rice .Chef showed how to cut fish then how to make sushi. It was simple and yummy (If you don't have any experiences about cooking... don't worry) My class also had kids too. Also you would eat a lot of sushi that you made We would highly recommend this class. Pae and Sebastian san
