Take a fascinating 'deep dive' into Japanese seafood cuisine during this combination walking tour of Tsukiji Outer Fish Market and cooking class. Shop for the freshest ingredients amidst the labyrinth-style aisles of Tsukiji Outer Fish Market, showcasing everything from sushi-grade tuna to octopus tentacles. Then head to the largest gourmet cooking school in Asia as you learn to prepare traditional-style ‘washoku’ food items like sushi and a Japanese omelet. An English-speaking guide, transport, cooking ingredients and tools and lunch with a beverage are all included.
  • Explore Japanese culinary traditions during this combination Tsukiji Outer Fish Market walking tour and cooking lesson
  • Discover the wondrous array of seafood from tuna to tentacles for sale at Tsukiji Outer Fish Market (morning tour only)
  • Explore Japanese cooking during a course at one of Asia's largest gourmet cooking schools
  • Learn to prepare 'washoku' dishes, a Japanese cooking style that emphasizes homemade, traditional techniques
Meet your guide in front of Tsukiji Honganji Temple, located just outside the famous seafood market. Visit the popular Tsukiji Outer Fish Market and browse the shopping and sample tasting areas. As you wander the aisles of this colorful, chaotic market you’ll observe everything from giant tuna to sea urchin to octopus arranged for sale.
If you select the tour departing at noon, time permitting, you will stop at the Namiyoke Shrine to learn some tips about how to pray in a traditional way. Stop by some local shops with your friendly local guide and see some Japanese traditional knife and kitchen tools, local pickles and more.
Once you’ve had your ‘fill’ of seafood, proceed with your guide to the gourmet cooking studio of one of Asia’s largest culinary schools, boasting more than 150 studios throughout the region. Following the instruction of an experienced cooking teacher, you’ll learn to prepare two ‘washoku’ recipes, a style of Japanese cuisine emphasizing traditional and homemade techniques. This typically includes a sushi roll along with a Japanese-style omelet, called ‘tamagoyaki,’ plus side dishes.
Finish your session by digging into your tasty creations for lunch, enjoying your meal accompanied by your choice of wine, plum sake or soft drinks. You’ll leave with a full stomach and a newfound appreciation for the wondrous world of Japanese cuisine and its top-notch ingredients.

This tour was awesome! Great sights in the outer market and surrounding areas. Was nice to stop and enjoy the local fare too. Our tour leader was knowledgeable and fun. The cooking lesson at the end was also delightful and informative, plus delicious once all was done!

Market Tour was a complete waste of money and time

Our tour group consisted of 14 tourists and 3 tour guides, yet our lead guide did not have any means of standing out in a crowd (flag, umbrella, etc.). My daughter and I stopped to buy something, I made eye contact with one of the guides to ensure that someone knew we were stopping, and when I turned around after completing my purchase (less than a minute later), the group had vanished. My daughter and I spent the next 30 minutes searching for them, to no avail. I finally called the number on my confirmation page (my cell phone plan does not include out-of-country calls, so I still don't know what that call cost me), and the guide that answered seemed to not even know we were missing from the group. We arranged a spot to meet and then she spent the next 10 minutes or so giving us a quickie tour because I was so angry, I was ready to burst. We hardly experienced any of the fish market--we absolutely could have done better just going on our own. We did enjoy the cooking class afterward, but not enough to give this tour a good rating.

We booked the day tour and lucked out because we were the old two people who had a reservation so we ended up having a private tour and cooking class. Our guide was so helpful and knowledgeable about the market. When traveling to Tokyo, seeing this market is a must do. The cooking class was such a fun experience as well. At the end we were able to try some Japanese traditional drinks as well. I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about Tokyo and sushi making.

The market tour was informative and fun, with several opportunities to interact with local merchants, sample foods and purchase items with no pressure from the guides to do so. The sushi-making class was also fun.

Our tour guide, Kyle was fabulous. He showed us many stalls and foods and due to his knowledge and rapport with the stall holders I felt comfortable and safe in trying different types of foods. The sushi class was fun, really enjoyed making the Japanese omelette which tasted really good and the tastings of the different types of drinks.
