What You Can Expect

Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Morning Tour from Tokyo

Sushi Making and Tsukiji Fish Market Tour from Tokyo

Uncover the fascinating world of sushi, as you explore the entire process of creation, from sourcing ingredients to the proper techniques behind the perfect roll, on this sushi tour in Tokyo. It’s the perfect excursion for sushi die-hards, as well as anyone simply looking to better understand the culture and cooking behind this unique Japanese cuisine.

Start your sushi immersion in the morning at the city’s Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal. Proceed with your guide by subway to the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market, the world’s largest marketplace for seafood and one of the biggest wholesale centers anywhere on earth.

This fascinating center of seafood commerce is divided into two sections, split between an outer section that features food vendors, restaurants and Japanese cookware stores, along with an inner section for wholesalers that is restricted to visitors. Spend 45 minutes exploring the market’s outer section with your guide, marveling at the strange marine creatures for sale and learning about the many ingredients you’ll be working with later in the day at your cooking session.

Head next to a well-known sushi restaurant popular with both locals and visitors alike, near the market to start your day’s course. Follow along with your instructor as their instructions are translated into English by your guide, trying your hand at making both sushi rolls and nigiri (single ingredient pieces over rice). Once you’ve had enough time to get the hang of this unique Japanese culinary art, you’ll sit down for a lunch of your hand-made creations.

Finish your tour back at Tsukiji station, where you can make your way to your next destination or back to your hotel.

This is well worth the money. They took us around the outside of the Fish Market. If you want to see inside, you will need to take a different tour. The tour guide pointed out booths with free samples and if you want to try a certain type of fish I tried sea urchin here they point out places that provide affordable portions.

Next you go to Ginza and learn how to roll sushi. You make 2 rolls and about 8 pieces of sushi. I would say this is probably the best tour I've ever bought on Viator.

One of our favorite activities. A fun morning. Seeing all the booths at the market was very interesting. Lots of food, seafood to buy, knives, etc. The food smelled delicious. Our guide was wonderful. The chef at the restaurant was skilled as well as fun. He taught us how to make the sushi, and he cut up an additional fish in no time. Eating our creations and learning about the history of sushi and the culture was phenomenal. Our guide was wonderful. We even received a certificate in a short ceremony. Tempura was served as well as your sushi. It was lots of food. A favorite!

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!

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!
