Great tour - highly recommend. We enjoyed the tour of the market as well as the sushi making class. My 13 year old daughter had a particularly good time, even though she does not eat sushi. The guide, Yoko, was extremely nice and made the morning a success.
My husband and I had so much fun. Our tour guide, yoko, was incredible sweet and accommodating to what we wanted to see and do. Our sushi teacher was very patient and explained her craft very well. We bought the mat needed for sushi rolls and already talking about having a sushi making party when we get back home!
Our guide, Nao, was excellent. We first went to the fish market, but were not allowed inside the actual market. Instead, we quickly walked through some of the alleys around the market. So, we didn't see or experience much of the actual market, but I think most of us were on the tour for the sushi making class, so that's OK. The class itself was fantastic and well worth it. Great instructors and a lot of fun. We started with scaling, cleaning/gutting and filleting the fish. Then we learned how to make hand rolls, nigiri, and maki. It was one of the best things we did in Tokyo.
The guide Yoko was extremely helpful and delightful. The sushi chef had a great sense of humour and is highly skilled. We learned a tremendous amount and had a lot of fun making and then eating our own sushi. We highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Japanese cuisine. The fish markets were full of exciting smells and exotic looking food products.
If you are going to Tokyo do this! Not early enough to see the fish auction and the tour guide was not allowed to take us inside. However, the market going on outside was awesome. Like a giant farmers market with fish as well as farm products. The sushi class was fun as well as educational. We had one of the few women sushi chefs and she was perfect!
We had a lot if fun, enjoyed the learning experience and loved eating our finished sushi. We recommend this experience to anyone interested in Japanese food
This was great! the guide was so nice and willing to provide extra help/info. The sushi making course was great (beware, you dont make sushi rolls because those are not actually japanese!). One thing I wouldve liked is if the market tour was a little longer, but overall i recommend this!
Another brilliant tour. We can't wait to try out our newly learned Sushi making skills.
The chef was very interesting to watch.
A little rushed at the start but the sushi making was brilliant. It covers everything including filleting fish. We completed it early and had the opportunity to go back to the fish markets for a more intimate tour.
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!!
