Great tour, fun and insightful. Would highly recommend MAKE and EAT YOUR OWN SUSHI!!!
Wonderful experience - fantastic guide - sushi making great fun and the food delicious . A must when in Tokyo!!!
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.
An excellent guide with good English made for a very pleasant half day.
This was so fun! The chef was excellent, the English interpreter was easy to follow, and the sushi was amazing. I was amazed how many kinds we made!
This was a wonderful experience! I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo.
This was a wonderful tour. Making sushi at a top sushi restaurant was great.
Great fun and very interesting and great to find out and see how sushi is truly made would highly recommend
This tour was a great way to see the outer market at Tsukiji as well as have a fun sushi-making lunch in the nearby Ginza district. Our tour guide was also particularly excellent.
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!
