Fabulous Tour! Kiyoka is a great guide and wonderful ambassador to Tokyo!
The Tsukiji Fish Market is a great place to taste some delicious food.. Seize the moment and buy whatever catches your eye!
The sushi-making class is very basic. Don't expect to filet any fish. You will have an opportunity to watch a sushi chef filet a fish and prepare 3 slices of sashimi. The class involves moulding rice and topping it with some prepared toppings. Lots to eat at the end of the tour, but the best part was meeting Kiyoka and learning about Tokyo!
I highly, highly recommend this tour with Kiyoka.

My husband and I went on the Tsukiji Fish market tour & sushi making experience and it was fantastic! We were so fortunate to have Yoshi as our guide, and only wish she could have accompanied us on the rest of our two weeks in Japan! Her english was perfect and she has a lovely calm, friendly manner.
We learnt so much about not only the fish market and the amazing variety of food on offer, but on life in general in Japan, as well as handy tips on where else to eat, shop or sightsee. Yoshi was so generous with her time and suggestions, and really impressed us both.
The sushi making was a great fun experience, and very authentic with a wonderful chef demonstrating his techniques - and us trying our best to copy. Tasted delicious and we were so honoured to be given a surprise gift as the 2000th guests there; it was a real treat.
We would highly recommend this tour as a fun, informative experience and if you can get Yoshi as your guide, consider yourself lucky!

The tour round the fish market was a lot of fun and very informative. Being from England, we would not have known what many things were (everything being labeled in Japanese), and so our tour guide, Naoko, did a great job explaining.
The market includes stalls other than just fish so you really get to know a lot about Japan, their food and also their culture. Naoko was very knowledgeable and was very happy to answer any questions as well as provide a lot of background to everything we were seeing. She also seemed to know many of the traders and was able to encourage them to offer us tastings of what they were selling.
The sushi making that we did after the market tour was a lot of fun. As sushi lovers, it was a unique experience for us to learn how to make sushi from an experienced friendly chef!!
We definitely recommend this tour. Many thanks to Naoko for making it such fun!!

Kazu-san is a fantastic tour guide who knows all of the best spots to visit at the outer fish market. He is well-known to the vendors, very personable and knowledgeable and taught me everything I wanted to know about the market’s history and culture and more. It was the best tour I’ve had in recent years and as a lover of all types of Japanese food it could not have been more delicious. The sushi making class was fun and the food plentiful. Loved our chef! This tour is an absolute must.

Great experience! Special thanks to Yoshi our multilingual guide into the tsukiji market. Plenty of great spot (and yummy samples), stories,explanations, handmade knives shop ( I've been back there to get one after the class). That was perfect.
The sushi class taught by a skilled sushi master was impressive and well explained.
Very professional and mastered.
My best cooking class experience in Tokyo so far.

Chi was the most gracious and knowledgeable guide. We learned a lot from her about the Buddhist temple and also the Tsukizi fish market, where we ate and bought wonderful things.
Making and haha especially eating sushi at the sushi chef school was a highlight of our trip. Like Chi, the people there were warm and fun.

We had a great morning with Tak. A fun and informative tour of the fish market followed by a sushi making class that was equally as fun. Highly recommend - as much or as little insight as you like, Tak was informative and engaging.

Thankyou to our guide, Yuriko, for the time spent wandering the markets and learning how to make sushi (as well as eating it!). It was an overall excellent experience! We thoroughly recommend this tour to any other travellers.
by Ken (12/16/19)
The tour was informative and entertaining at the same time.
Thank you Kiyoka.
by Joey (12/03/19)
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 !!

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.

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.

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.

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.
