Amazing! loved the fish markets and the Sushi Marking course was great. I went back and brought all my utensils at the markets after. Have been recommending this tour to everyone that loves sushi.
Great class. Learned a lot, the instructor was fun, and the sushi was good.
Great tour. First we went to the fish market and had some free time to look around. Because it wasn't a big group that day the leader personally showed as around and explained what things where, we saw fresh wasabi, shark skin wasabi grinders, seafood etc. After we went to make the sushi and the chef was great. We made a variety of sushi then ate it for lunch.
Tour of the fish Market which is excellent to get you in the mood, then make way to the lesson. Fantastic teacher and guide. One of the best things I have done for a long time. Picked up some really useful skills, made some great Sushi, then had it for lunch. met some great people. Highly recommended.
Lovely morning, really enjoyed myself and would recommend to anyone wanting to give sushi making ago !
Worthwhile and had the best chef to teach us. The English speaking guide was very informative and everyone had a great time. The food was beautiful and fresh and I will do it again next time I get to Japan.
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.
Mickey the guide was great... Very hospitable and informative.
Would have liked to learn californian rolls though since that's the typical sushi made in AUS.
The chef taught us how to dissect a fish properly and sliced it to Shashimi. The demonstration was clear and the hands-on experience was fun. The guide was friendly and helpful.
Sushi making class was very enjoyable with professional sushi chef teaching us the classics in sushi making however, not enough time in the Tsukiji Fish market.
People make a Tour work and we had the most wonderful and Fun loving Group.
Katie, who spoke English as well as Japanese, was our very Organised and well Informed Tour Guide.
This was a Half Day Tour, starting with scouting around the fish Market Site, followed by Going to the Cooking School and Meeting A Master Sushi Chef and his Staff All with a great sense of humour and A fun Attempt at making our own Sushi Lunch. We enjoyed this a lot and would have Liked it to be a Full Day, As there wasn't enough time to see the Market Place at any Length. Very Happy with Viators Organisation and will Book Tours with This Company Again.
This was fantastic! Our sushi chef was brilliant and an excellent teacher. The class was intimate and everyone received special attention. The only downside is I wish we would have been able to enter the big wholesale fish market where the auctions are held. I'm not necessarily interested in the auctions, but would have been special to see the world's largest fish market. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this tour!!
Sushi making was fantastic, only missed out on the fifth star as the fish markets tour is only of the outer market and not the inner market as we had hoped.
Good, not great. Guide was a little disengaged but the sushi making class itself was fun.
A little disappointing that we could not see the actual market but an early (4am) start not possible. The surrounding market we did visit was great. The sushi school was fantastic and though I had some difficulty eating the finished product: I am not keen on raw fish but the teaching was great! the guide fantastic and the teacher brilliant. Lots of fun. Would recommend this trip to all.
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.
