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!

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.

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!!

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.

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.

We were so lucky to have Asaka guide us through Tsukiji Market - pointing out all the best shops for the things we were interested in. We had some amazing Toro and Oysters and Mochi. Asaka also recommended the shop for our knife purchase. She made shopping so much easier. Our experience was So amazing we’re going back before we leave Japan to find some omiyage.
We also thoroughly enjoyed the sushi making class. . Our instructor was patient and always smiling even though we weren’t the best students. To top
It off we got to eat all we made.
Great day! I highly recommend this tour.

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!

We had a great time with Tomo-san as our tour guide! She gave us a lot of useful information about the market and showed us some great places to eat as well.

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!!

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!

This tour was fabulous. Walking around the fish markets with a guide is a must. Learning how to make sushi was a fun experience.

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.

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.

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.
by Linda (06/12/18)
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.
