    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.

    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.

    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
    by Christoph-san (04/22/19)

    Excellent tour with Kiyoka! Really enjoyed her expertise and how we learned so much on the tour. The sushi making was a highlight for us all!
    by j.rene1 (04/05/19)
    Very nice tour. Well done
    by Mark (04/03/19)
    We met at the temple, which was very easy to find: directly across the street from the train station. Our tour guide was Naoko, who was perfect! She was knowledgeable about the history, food, and culture of the market & Japan. We learned so much, and had so much fun along the way. Naoko was full of smiles and kept the tour fun while informative. Her English was excellent, and she translated for us in the market and sushi making class. She encouraged us to sample a lot of food while in the market, and gave us time to shop at our leisure. Perfect balance for a tour on all levels! If you book this tour: Request Naoko!! The best people make the best experiences!
    by Julianne (04/03/19)
    We really enjoyed our tour with Tak in the Fish market. He took us to different vendors and booths where were we were able to see and sample different foods. His inside knowledge on where to go in the fish market was a great local's inside view of the culture . He even took us to his favorite knife shop for us to bring home a special gift. We then went to the sushi class to experience and learn how to make sushi. This was also a highlight and perfect for the children to learn more about the food culture. We would highly recommend both of these tours as in an inside top notch experience.

    So happy to be writing this review! We had an amazing time with our tour guide, Naoko, touring the fish market, learning some local history, and learning how to make the perfect sushi. :) Hard to know what our favorite part of the tour was because it was all so great! Thanks! Bryan and Steph
    by Bryan and Steph (03/15/19)
    Great experience! You walk through the market and can learn a lot from their culture with the explanation of the guide. After that we could see the chef cut and slide the fish that was great!
    by Anachu (02/09/19)
    Very good tour. Our guide was friendly and helpful. As a new expat in Japan I was able to ask questions about fish and vegetables that I hadn't seen before and get tips on how to cook them. Unexpected extras to an already memorable market tour and sushi making experience.
    by B&TK (01/28/19)
    Me and my wife did the Tsukiji market tour and sushi among last month and we had the best time! It was the highlight of our Tokyo trip. Our guide Eri was amazing - she was incredibly knowledgable and all the people we met on the tour let us sample bits and pieces of what they were selling and Eri made us feel very comfortable. The sushi making was also incredible and great value for money! We would highly reccomend this!!
    by LJBense (12/04/18)
    This was one of the highlights of our trip. It made the top 3 on his list of things we did in Japan over the week we spent here. Absolutely worth it, even with the inner market being closed. There is more than enough to see and experience in the outer market. Our guide, Mari, was outstanding as well. She sent us some superb pictures from the sushi making - that was a lot of food. That alone was worth the tour but the fish market was quite fascinating.
    by Rusty (11/22/18)
    We booked a tour threw the Tsukiji Market and the Sushi making course after and it was just wonderful. The tour was perfectly organized and we were very lucky as we found out that we had our absolutely fabolous guide Nanako just for ourselves. She did such a great job and we enjoyed it so much. Not only she showed and explained us all the corners of the outer market, but also told us a lot about the culture, the nearby temples and the japanese traditions. We even managed to see how a giant bluefin tuna was cut - a unique experience. I can really say that it was definitely an absolutely highlight of our trip to Tokyo this time and one of the greatest experiences we had in Japan until now (and its already my 4th trip). After Tsukiji we went to nearby neighborhoud Ginza, where we had our sushi course. The enviroment was very nice and traditional, with a lot of armosphere. Everybody was extremely kind and our sushi chef was brilliant. We had a lot of fun with him too and he was very patient explaining the details and answering every question. After that we could enjoy sef made makis and nigiris. And of course get our certificates, which was a lovely gesture. We will definitely recommend it to everyone. Thanks again for your care, the detailed information and the way you made us feel so comfortable.

    The Tsukiji fish market tour and sushi making class was excellent. Our guide Tomo was funny, kind, full of interesting information and went the extra mile for us. I would highly recommend the tour for anyone interested in Japanese food culture as it encompasses all sorts of food, not just fish. The sushi making class was good value and taught by a very accomplished, hilarious and encouraging chef. A good time was had by all.
