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!
Translator was excellent and very informative. The chef was fun to work with and very patient. Great way to experience the Market and have a delicious lunch!
The chef was excellent and very funny. He was an excellent teacher, even though he spoke only in Japanese. Our tour guide was a good interpreter and we both had a fantastic time.
The sushi making experience was memorable! Taught by a professional sushi chef inside a culinary school. All nine of us including five children believed this tour was one of the highlights to Tokyo. It's worth the experience.
This is an absolute must for anyone with a spare half-day in Tokyo. It was the most fabulous thing we did during our two week stay in Japan. We were amazed to find ourselves in the training kitchen of one of the top sushi chain restaurants in Tokyo alongside lots of Japanese students, ie not just tourists. The teaching chefs spoke a little English and were extremely attentive and friendly. Not to be missed!
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.
This was a great experience although I'm not sure why it is so expensive. Still, I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Learning to make Japanese omelette, sushi and California roll then eating them all was a really memorable experience. The chef was good humoured and encouraging and the food was the best sushi I've ever tasted! ( thanks to the beautiful fresh ingredients). The female assistant was also fantastic.
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!
Our guide was very nice and looked after us well, but we were very disappointed that she just walked us to the outer market and left us there! We expected that we would have some kind of guide through the market, pointing out things that we may not be familiar with and explaining things to us (there were only 6 people in the group). We had already been through this part of the market ourselves the day before......so that was a waste of time and money. The sushi making class was a great experience!! The chef was a wonderful teacher, would have been even better if we spoke Japanese!!
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.
Sushi makig was great, but fish market tour was a total bust as tour guide cannot actually tour you around the fish market nor do they have any real knowledge about the fish and market. The fish market tour was misrepresentated. Also, the tour guide could not be heard due to all the noise on subway, street and in general.
