This tour is a fun way to get a taste of local Tokyo culture and savor some freshly made sushi!
It was a very interesting trip to say the least and the tour guide Yokiko spoke flawless English and she was very knowledgeable of the city and the history of the various parts of the tour! I received much individual attention during this guided tour.
This was so much fun and I highly recommend it! It was one of the highlights of our time in Tokyo. The sushi making class definitely gives a variety of fish and types of sushi to try as well. As soon as the class was over, my boyfriend and I went straight back to Tsukiji and purchased our own authentic sushi kits from the boards they used, sauce bowls, bamboo rolls, etc. The market is crowded, but the hustle of the atmosphere is invigorating and a true sight to see!
Great experience for grandson
This trip was everything my boyfriend and I expected. The hotel pick-up was easy, finding Honda our wonderful tour guide provided no stress, the fish market was full of samples/new experiences, and the sushi making was an adventure we can never re-create.
Our guide, Yuko, was simply amazing, and the experience of the fish market and making sushi is truly unmissable! It really serves as a gateway into Japanese culture and the chef was very patient while Yuko translated the instructions. The sushi was delicious and there were only two other people in my class. This school trains professional sushi chefs and Japanese people interested in making sushi, so it was great to have access to so much knowledge and so many skills!
Excellent tour. Walked around the fish market, similar to an open bizarre. The sushi class was fun and very informative.
It was fantastic! Everybody's reviews I'd read prior to booking stated how good this tour was and they were right! I'm really glad I did it. The walk around the Tsukiji Fish Market - although fairly quick, was enough I went back afterwards but really we saw most of it and the tour really was enough. It was good to stay with the group even though we were offered the opportunity to go through the inner market and meet up with the tour guide afterwards although it was busy and I and a couple of others didn't want to get lost. The outer market is interesting and we got to see the small kitchens the cooks work in in the restaurants. It was good having someone in the know and someone whose English was very good guide us through the market as well as keep us safe from the whizzing forklifts and other vehicles.
The sushi workshop was excellent! I would definitely find a way to include it in the next school trip as I think students would love it. I loved it. I had originally thought I knew how to make sushi, but learning it from a real Japanese chef and trying not only maki zushi rolled sushi but also hand rolled sushi and nigiri fish on rice and learning and trying the proper technique. It was fun, engaging and was lovely meeting people from other cultures.
This was a very special tour with the wonderful Miki as our guide translator of both the Tsukiji Fish Market and the surrounding local shops. After these tours we arrived at our hands-on sushi making class. Our chef was so very patient and generous with his help. We absolutely loved this tour and would highly recommend it!
very interesting tour.
