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!
Great tour, fun and insightful. Would highly recommend MAKE and EAT YOUR OWN SUSHI!!!
Wonderful experience - fantastic guide - sushi making great fun and the food delicious . A must when in Tokyo!!!
It was a very enjoyable, informative, and delicious tour. We toured the outer part of the Tsukiji Fish Market first then our guide provided a map of the market and we were given time to explore the market on our own.
Afterwards, we went for our sushi making lesson in Ginza. A brief history of sushi was given and a sushi chef demonstrated how to fillet a fish. We were then taught how to make sushi rolls and nigiri sushi. At the end of the lesson, we were given a certificate for completing the class. Along with the sushi that we had made, we were provided with three pieces of tempura to eat. It was very filling.
At the end, our guide also provided a map and directions on how to return to our hotel by train. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful.
An excellent guide with good English made for a very pleasant half day.
This was so fun! The chef was excellent, the English interpreter was easy to follow, and the sushi was amazing. I was amazed how many kinds we made!
This was a wonderful experience! I highly recommend it to anyone visiting Tokyo.
This was a wonderful tour. Making sushi at a top sushi restaurant was great.
Great fun and very interesting and great to find out and see how sushi is truly made would highly recommend
This tour was a great way to see the outer market at Tsukiji as well as have a fun sushi-making lunch in the nearby Ginza district. Our tour guide was also particularly excellent.
Great tour - highly recommend. We enjoyed the tour of the market as well as the sushi making class. My 13 year old daughter had a particularly good time, even though she does not eat sushi. The guide, Yoko, was extremely nice and made the morning a success.
