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.

Wow what a tour. A Fabulous insight into the many splendours of Japanese Food. I don't want to tell you too much but this was the highlight of my Visit. Mami Goto our guide, was the most helpful, inspiring and knowledgeable guide- she knows many of the food vendors and encourages you to sample allsorts of great food. A Truly inspirational person who is the best guide I have ever toured with.

It is a must do Tour!

A wonderful way to get the maximum out of this great market.
If I were to walk in the market without this guide for sure I would not have enjoyed it as I did. Thanks to the wonderful tour guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly.

A big reason I booked our trip to Japan was to visit Tsukiji Market before it moves. I enjoyed trying various Japanese foods- including the ones I didn't like and was glad I hadn't actually ordered in a restaurant! I never would have found or been brave enough to enter the inner market without our guide's direction. Highly recommend visiting the market if you can before it moves!

Thank you Naoko for the amazing tour! This review is a little late, we did the tour on December 26th. Such a great experience. We tried so much delicious food, and had all our (many) questions answered. Naoko was so kind, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the traditions. Excellent!
