Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Morning Tour from Tokyo

Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Tour from Tokyo

Uncover the fascinating world of sushi, as you explore the entire process of creation, from sourcing ingredients to the proper techniques behind the perfect roll, on this sushi tour in Tokyo. It’s the perfect excursion for sushi die-hards, as well as anyone simply looking to better understand the culture and cooking behind this unique Japanese cuisine.
Start your sushi immersion in the morning at the city’s Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal, or with a pickup from select hotels in Tokyo. Proceed with your guide by subway to the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market, the world’s largest marketplace for seafood and one of the biggest wholesale centers anywhere on earth.
This fascinating center of seafood commerce is divided into two sections, split between an outer section that features food vendors, restaurants and Japanese cookware stores, along with an inner section for wholesalers that is restricted to visitors. Spend 45 minutes exploring the market’s outer section with your guide, marveling at the strange marine creatures for sale and learning about the many ingredients you’ll be working with later in the day at your cooking session.
Head next to a well-known sushi restaurant popular with both locals and visitors alike, near the market to start your day’s course. Follow along with your instructor as their instructions are translated into English by your guide, trying your hand at making both sushi rolls and nigiri (single ingredient pieces over rice). Once you’ve had enough time to get the hang of this unique Japanese culinary art, you’ll sit down for a lunch of your hand-made creations.
Finish your tour back at Tsukiji station, where you can make your way to your next destination or back to your hotel.

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.
