We had an amazing tour of the Fish Market with Masae. Our family thought she was the best tour guide we ever had and this tour was the highlight of our trip to Japan and Asia. My kids are still talking about the amazing time they had and Masae was so patient as my son tried every food sample at the fish market. She was super knowledgeable about all and so friendly. The sushi making experience was a highlight and Masae even helped to guide us through that as much of what was said in Japanese. Overall Japan Wonder Travel is top notch and Masae is the best. If you can request her for your tour you will not be disappointed. We miss her already.

I had a very enjoyable time on the walking tour of the fish market. My tour guide, Toshi, was very knowledgeable of the market and history. He made the tour both informative and enjoyable. Sushi making was fun and is an excellent family activity. It is not a course for those looking to learn more about how to prepare the rice and have an opportunity to carve the fish, as it is all prepared ahead of time. However you will learn how to assemble the sushi and enjoy a very good sushi meal. The experience is well worth the cost

I am traveling alone and I am very fortunate that I was the only one who booked this tour this day. My guide, Yukio-San was extremely knowledgeable and absolutely fluent in English. He presented the market brilliantly, educating me not only about the products but also about how they are used and the cultural background. in addition to the market and taking me to the restaurant where I was introduced to the art of making maki, iniri, and nigiri sushi, he showed me a Shinto shrine and a Buddhist temple.
I highly recommend this tour.

This tour was a highlight of my trip to Japan. My guide, Kato, was extremely knowledgeable of Japanese Cuisine and the related cultural significance. Throughout the tour he was extremely enthusiastic and always willing to answer questions and accommodate special requests. The market and food offering is amazing and a must see in Tokyo. The sushi class afterwards was hands on and run in a fun and positive way. Sushi master Toru, made sure we all had a great experience. One of the best food experiences I have had anywhere in the world!

I highly recommend this fish market tour and sushi class. Our guide, Yuki, was absolutely wonderful. The market had so much to see! Yuki offered insider info about the market and vendors and answered all of our questions about some foods we had never seen before. The sushi class was so much fun and we had more than enough to eat for lunch! Can't wait to make some sushi back home. Thanks for an excellent time Yuki!

We had a wonderful experience learning all about the Tsukiji Fish Market with Ikuko and our sushi making lesson from a professional sushi chef! We loved every minute of it and was one of the highlights of our trip to Japan! Two thumbs up and we would recommend this to any and all of our friends!!!

EXCELLENT!!! And even that word cannot describe the amazing tour we had. Lily was beyond amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. She showed us some amazing locations, was so helpful with our questions and making sure we got everything we wanted for gifts. We cannot thank Lily enough for the awesome time. If we went back again, we would definitely look her up for another amazing tour :-D

Excellent! Thank you so much for the wonderful experience and the pictures! My husband and I are so glad we took the time to do a guided tour versus exploring on our own! Thank you!
by Laura O'Neill (06/19/17)
I HIGHLY recommend this tour! We had a wonderful day with our tour guide, Lilly. She was amazing!!!! We tried different foods and she answered all the questions we had regarding the local foods and traditions. She was truly a joy to be with. The sushi making was great too! Very relaxed and fun for all ages. This was worth every cent...highly recommend!
by Michelle (06/19/17)
The combination of the tour (both inner and outer market) and the sushi making was just lovely! Sayoko made the whole process both a memorable experience and easy as possible! She was just so helpful with everything even our plans for after the tour. My only note would be I would have liked a little more time in the outer market to shop - like 15-20 minutes would have been perfect. Other than that it was simply the best tour you could take of this establishment!
by KValenta (06/16/17)
My family had such a fun time. Yukio-san was our guide and he was very knowledgeable. He was so polite with every vendor we visited on the outer part of Tsukiji market, talking to the owners to help us learn about all the different foods and we got to try so many samples!
He took us inside and we learned about the sheer magnitude of this industry. He also made sure of our safety from all the speeding merchant transport carts whizzing around.
A quick taxi ride to the Ginza where we learned how to make sushi. It was so much fun. The sushi chef was so enthusiastic to teach us, we felt special.
Thank you so much Yukio-san!

This tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Yukio, did an outstanding job of introducing us to the Tsukiji Outer Market and the Inner Market. His knowledge and understanding of the history and the dynamics of the market really added to our understanding of Japanese culture. We also really enjoyed the Sushi making class and lunch at the Ganko Sushi Restaurant. Yukio's tour was one of the best we experienced while in Japan.

A very big Thanks to Mr.Toshi for the Tsukiji fish market tour on 18th May,i should say this was the best tour we had in Tokoyo. Actually we are into restaurant business and we are frequent travelers to explore food but this tour was special because we could taste raw Tuna and Mombo which i think was impossible without Mr.Toshi. He took us to all nook and corners of the market.Also to mention the Sushi class which was impressive.
Thank you once again Toshi for the fantastic time and tour .will definitely come Tokyo again.
by Santosh Das (05/28/17)
Excellent tour! A definite recommendation - lots of fun and Yuko-san, our tour guide was incredible! She gave us a lot of information and was extremely helpful in getting me back to my hotel. The sushi making was so much fun and the sushi and tempura was delicious. A must tour!

Thank you for being our guide.
Thanks Aubrey and Amber

I can highly recommend this experience to anyone wanting to do more on their trip to Tokyo! If you love sushi, this is a must. We all learned a lot and Mari was an excellent guide and her English was very easily understood.

We had a great time on our Tsukiji Fish Market Tour and sushi making experience. Our guide Yoshi was awesome. She was knowledgeable and very welcoming to us. She was eager to share her culture with us, and she even gave us other recommendations and help with the rest of our trip in Japan. Highly recommend this tour! Thanks again Yoshi!

by Thomas (04/14/17)
Thank you so much for a fabulous tour. I really found everything about tour well explained by you and you made sure we connected with the activities in a culturally sensitive but also fun way. Can you tell our sushi history presenter that I loved his drawings that accompanied the story telling. Am aso pleased that I now feel confident to make sushi.
As for my Onsen experience that afternoon, it was great way to relax after all the walking of the day. Very clean pools and very helpful staff to assist English speaking visitors. Just loved it thank for asking.

We did the fish market and sushi making classes with Yu. He was awesome. Full of information, energy, and humor. It was a great way to explore an area we would not have done on our own. The sushi making class was fun and informative after. Definitely recommend.

We wanted to visit the Tsukiji market, but being the massive place that it is, we felt more comfortable with a guide and we decided to book this tour.
We were not disappointed and having a guide to show us some of the popular stalls and translate our questions to the stall owners made it a whole lot more pleasant than trying to look up words in a dictionary :)
We had a lot of fun and Toshi-San was helpful in explaining some of the questions we had on the produce as we toured the outer market.
When it came to the inner market where wholesalers get to auction for the best deals, we had Yu-San as a guide and we were lucky to have him there to give us a little history on the market and explain how the market works.
After that all, we had a lot of fun with the sushi-making and had the opportunity to learn how to make and eat our own creations!
Overall, we had a great time and the guides were excellent!
