we had a great time with Maki, her English is excellent. she explained what everything was and we even got to sample some food in the markets. the sushi experience is fun and we basicly had to be rolled out of the resturant after all the sushi we ate. 11/10

Excellent tour with knowledgeable and fun guide. The sushi making was great.

Our guide Yuko-san was kind, friendly, patient, informative, helpful, knowledgeable and fun. We were taught a lot information about different kinds of food to be found in the outer market, and the inner wholesalers’ fish market, and Yuko-san was patient as we sampled different Japanese delicacies. The Sushi making class was so much fun, as well as educational. The chef was very friendly, and Yuko-san translated the instructions for us. We then had the pleasure of eating the sushi we had created. We recommend this great tour, and we recommend Yuko-san as a great guide and ambassador.

Yuko-san was an excellent guide and she brings the tour alive. She shares her knowledge easily and we thoroughly enjoyed the food and drink tour with her. She also gave detailed directions to help us get around on the subway and shinkansen smoothly. Highly recommended.

Chihiro is not only the best travel guide in Tokyo, she’s he best I’ve ever had. She was so informative and helpful. The tour was so fun because we had her. She even helped me find a store after the tour was finished that I wanted to see in Ginza. She walked me there! My whole family loved her. Great tour. Great guide!

This was a very informative tour and I had such a great experience! Our tour guide Yoko was very knowledgeable and it was such a pleasure to have her by our side. The sushi making class was so much fun, and now I can impress my friends back home with my newly learned skills! After the tour was concluded, Yoko even helped us find our way back to our home location, this was so nice and very much appreciated. Yoko also gave us great suggestions on shopping and other sites to see in Japan, and that wasn't even part of the tour. I appreciate her going above and beyond to make sure our experience was the best it could be. Thank you so much!!

Naoko was a super guide she took us to all the interesting parts of the market and interacted with people to show us the sights. At the sushi making class she translated the chefs instructions and checked with each individual that they understood. Naoko also gave us printed instructions on how to make sushi to take home with us. Would recommend this tour and guide

I had a fantastic time on the tour with our guide Tomo.
Her knowledge of the market and her friendly manner made for a memorable morning.
The sushi class is a must do, great fun and fabulous food!
If you're in Tokyo I recommend you give this tour a go, you won't be disappointed.

I’m not usually a “tour” kind of person, I generally like to explore on my own, however, I can confidently say that taking this tour was the best decision I made in Tokyo. I did the Tsukiji Fish Market tour with Sushi Making class afterward and it was so great! It exceeded my expectations. My guide, Ikuko Hoshi, was so knowledgable, so friendly, immediately upon meeting you her warm presence makes you feel like a friend. She was everything one could hope for in a guide. This tour and Hoshi made my trip to Tokyo! Would highly recommend it to anyone going to Japan.

We are so glad that we decided to book this tour when we visited Tokyo. It was one of the first activities we did when we arrived and it proved to be an ideal introduction into the food and culture of Japan.
Our guide was a wonderful young lady who made us feel at ease in a setting that was totally new to us. She knew lots of interesting details about stores that we visited and made the whole tour an experience that we will remember with happiness.
The sushi making workshop was an especially rewarding treat. We loved the setting and the sushi chef who helped teach us was very kind and patient.
We would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

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

We had an excellent time on the tour and in the sushi class! Lily was a wonderful guide! I would recommend to all my friends.

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.

We did the tour with Yuki-san in Tokyo. She was an amazing guide. very knowledgeable and spoke great English since she has lived in the US for 9 years. We had the most wonderful time in the outer & inner fish market. sushi making class was fun. I would highly recommend this tour.
by Selective Ani (08/01/17)
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!

Yuki was a super tour guide! She was so knowledgeable and she showed us the fish market, several shrines etc. the sushi making class was also great fun!! Highly recommend
by Nina (07/11/17)
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!
by Jen G (07/09/17)
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!!!
by E Jane (07/06/17)
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 tour with Mari, educational and fun!

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!
