Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Morning Tour from Tokyo

Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Tour from Tokyo

Your sushi-themed morning tour starts at the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal in Tokyo, where you’ll meet your guide and head by subway to the Tsukiji Fish Market, the world's largest fish and seafood market and one of the largest wholesale markets of any kind.

The market is split into the inner market, the wholesale portion that is restricted to visitors, and the outer market, the retail portion that features food stands, restaurants and shops selling Japanese kitchen tools. With your guide, stay in the outer market for about 45 minutes to explore the many stalls packed with exotic seafood and learn about the types of fish you’ll work with at your cooking class.

Next, your tour continues at a popular sushi restaurant for your sushi-making class. This cooking school is popular with both locals and visitors, and your guide will translate your teacher’s instructions.

Learn the art of making sushi — both rolls and nigiri — before sitting down to enjoy your creations for lunch.

Your tour concludes at the entrance to Tsukiji Station, where your guide can direct you to your preferred location.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

It was a very enjoyable, informative, and delicious tour. We toured the outer part of the Tsukiji Fish Market first then our guide provided a map of the market and we were given time to explore the market on our own.

Afterwards, we went for our sushi making lesson in Ginza. A brief history of sushi was given and a sushi chef demonstrated how to fillet a fish. We were then taught how to make sushi rolls and nigiri sushi. At the end of the lesson, we were given a certificate for completing the class. Along with the sushi that we had made, we were provided with three pieces of tempura to eat. It was very filling.

At the end, our guide also provided a map and directions on how to return to our hotel by train. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful.
