The lady we had was amazing! She made sure that we all stayed together and we got to try a lot of interesting foods. Her English was really good too and she was great with my then 4 year old daughter. We got to have little souvenirs here and there and I really appreciated how kind she was. She was even willing to help me exchange some old bills to current yen. Wonderful tour and woman. I recommend however, wearing waterproof boots/shoes in the inner fish market area. Lots of icy water, so you don't want to accidentally step in a puddle and have wet fishy feet.

My tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market was terrific! Our wonderful guide Jun was very knowledgeable, polite, and friendly as she led us through the crowded streets and stalls in the outer, middle, and inner markets. Along the way we sampled rice balls, beans, deep fried fish cakes, omelets, tuna sashimi, and sake. Plus, watched expert chefs at work and saw a wide variety of fish, eels, seaweed, caviar, knives, etc. The tour was well-paced, educational, and great fun. Our moveable feast ended with an excellent lunch at a standing sushi bar. Ill never forget the sounds, smells, and tastes, it was the highlight of my trip to Tokyo. Thanks Jun for making it such an enjoyable experience!

I went on the Tsukiji Fish Market tour with my wife and 11-year-old son. Our tour guide was Naoko. Naoko was very knowledgeable about the market. We were able to sample a variety of different food items. Naoko was easily able to explain what we were eating and provided in depth answers to our questions. She timed our tour so that we got back to an area of the market that provides a show as they cut into a giant tuna! She even made the tour interesting for my son. I must add that Naoko went above and beyond what a regular tour guide would do during our tour. My son ended up getting sick during the tour. Without going into all the details, Naoko took care of my son like he was her own child. She handled the situation perfectly and helped my son feel better. Since my wife and I were strangers in a foreign country, we were overwhelmed with how to handle the situation. Having Naoko with us was a life saver! She knew exactly what to do and where to go. If anyone is considering this tour, I strongly recommend Naoko as your tour guide.

We had a FABULOUS time at the Tsukiji Fish Market with Sachimi! She led us though the market with ease and with great explanations of what we were seeing. We consumed Japanese omelet, fried fish cake, fresh oyster ahi if you don't eat oysters, cherries, Japanese tea, Katsuobushi, sake and sushi. I highly recommend this tour for the first time and returning Tsukiji visitors, it makes a big difference when you have a seasoned shopper guiding you! Thank you Sachimi! :

We really enjoyed this tour! Our guide took time to explain various traditional Japanese foods and different ways to prepare them. We saw an amazing array of ingredients and the samples were quite good. We had time to also purchase a few special goodies which we would not have been able to find otherwise.
