Great experience and I really learned how to make sushi! Although I still need to learn how to make the rice. It is an interesting class as you are mixed into a real class with local people also in attendance. The teacher doesn't speak English but the guide was great at translating for us. The fish was fresh and delicious! And you get a lot of fish so definitely worth the price. The only thing is that we did not actually go to the fish market before the class, we went to the outer market, which was really cool and had lots of fish and other fresh foods and local ingredients and tools but it would have been nice to also visit the fish market. But I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend it to anyone!!
I had a great fun and educational day at the tsukiji market and making my own sushi lunch. my companion for the day Yuko was fun to hang out with and was very helpful. I had a terrific day with her and would recommend your service without hesitation. g (31718957)
I hadn't planned on doing a tour during my trip to Japan but stumbled across your tour while searching for activities in Tokyo. It was really worthwhile and I had a great time. I was met promptly at the agreed upon meeting spot and we stopped at other hotels to pick up other folks for various tours. Taken to the bus station to meet up with the tour guide, Takai (sp?). There were only 3 of us on this tour-which was a great. Takai had lived in New York, spoke excellent English and had a great, outgoing personality-perfect for this type of job. He walked us through the fish market and pointed out various foods/fish and after about an hour there, we went to the Sushi school. It was not a tourist racket but an actual school, we were the only Non Japanese in the place. Learned how to filet a fish, and to make Maki, Nigiri and handrolls as well as Tamago. It looks so simple but it takes years to master and while I probably wont be making Sushi at home, (cant' get good quality fish here where I live)-at least I'd be willing to try now. Afterwards, Takai helped us out with where we planned to go next-and walked me to my train station (definitely needed that assist). I made the arrangements online and had no problem whatsoever..and would use Viator's services again. The hardest part for me was getting to the initial meeting spot since I was staying an hour outside Tokyo and had to navigate the train system with transfers during rush hour to get to the hotel to meet up with our guide! Now THAT was an adventure.
The tour guide was very good in telling us where to get cheap eats around the fish market. The sushi making class was fun and we get a certificate for completing the course to boot :).
I was really entertained.
The fish market, the sushi class and our tour was wonderful.
Yoko, our guide was amazing! She was very knowledgeable, respectful, kind and is great at her job. She also had a pair of the most unique and cutest shoes I have seen :)!
I really enjoyed seeing the variety of fish in the markets while also discovering other unique seasonings, pickles and items unique to Japan.
The sushi making class and instructor were both great. I had little idea the degree of preparation involved in making sushi and have deepened my admiration for good sushi chefs and sushi. We were able to make a lot of beautifully decorated rolls using a variety of fish, learned how to prepare a japanese omelet (which was delicious), nicely fillet a fish, and was able to hear other tips and tricks by the chef.
Yoko was the best.
The tour amazing.
The sushi excellent.
I highly recommend this experience.
Thanks so much for adding to my wonderful experience of Japan!
All the best.
Amazing! loved the fish markets and the Sushi Marking course was great. I went back and brought all my utensils at the markets after. Have been recommending this tour to everyone that loves sushi.
Great tour. First we went to the fish market and had some free time to look around. Because it wasn't a big group that day the leader personally showed as around and explained what things where, we saw fresh wasabi, shark skin wasabi grinders, seafood etc. After we went to make the sushi and the chef was great. We made a variety of sushi then ate it for lunch.
Tour of the fish Market which is excellent to get you in the mood, then make way to the lesson. Fantastic teacher and guide. One of the best things I have done for a long time. Picked up some really useful skills, made some great Sushi, then had it for lunch. met some great people. Highly recommended.
The whole tour was fantastic, Viator was great, from ease of booking right through to organization of the tour pick up at the hotel, to Tsukiji market and finally with the sushi course. Having an English interpreter and a great sushi master made the course fun and I learned heaps. I am a pro chef myself and I found the course valuable! Thank you so much, highly recommended! This is a must do course whilst in Tokyo!
This tour was one of the highlights of my week in Tokyo. Even in the pouring rain, our leader made the tour of the fish market fun and informative; I definitely saw and learned more than I had on a previous visit on my own. And the sushi school was fantastic; I can't believe I managed to make a plate of assorted sushi, and have such a great time learning and doing it - and it was delicious! Really a wonderful experience - well worth it.
A bustling market, sometimes a little too crowded for me. All sorts of odd fish to be found (bag of squid beaks anyone?), definitely a sight to see. I really loved having sushi here, some of the best I have ever eaten and certainly fresh!
This should just be called the Sushi Making Class. The guide dropped us off outside of Tsukiji Market and left to us on the corner and were told to meet her back there at 9:00am. There was no tour of Tsukiji Market. However the Sushi Class was great I highly recommend that!
I was really disappointed that the tour didn't actually go into the fish market as it implies, only visits the markets around the outside of the fish markets. The sushi making course however, was brilliant and we made about 6 different kinds of sushi under the instruction of a very cool Japanese sushi chef.
It was great experience to take a sushi making class however I would like to make a note that the tour did not include the Tsukiji Fish market tour as we expected. It was very short walk through outer side of the market where you really do not see the excitement of the buyers and sellers in the market itself. I wish this tour described that in advance so you know what to anticipate. Otherwise the tour guide was very funny and enthusiastic lady that made our tour memorable and unforgettable.
Not what i expected as you don't get to see the real fishmarket but basically the part of the market where every private person can buy and go, more a wet market tour with vegetable, fruit, meat and fish. for this price way too overpriced and expensive. And also for my purpose of wanting to see the fishmarket disappointing. 3 different sushis were made and sashimi with cleaning and fileting of a whole fish that was awesome.
