Join our morning tour of the of the historic neighborhood market in Tsukiji. You have probably heard that the wholesale fish vendors have moved — But this part of town is still one of the best food areas in all of Tokyo, home to delicious restaurants and market shops, some dating back over 100 years or more! Taste specialties from the area; things you simply cannot find anywhere else. We know all the hidden gems and will make sure you have a chance to taste the many flavors that make up the heart and soul of Japanese cuisine. Start out with an amazing coffee and a tour overview at one of Tokyo’s best artisanal coffee spots.
Visit the 65 specialty vendors who decided NOT to move to Toyosu at the wholesale building. They have remained in Tsukiji in a custom made facility great for workers and visitors alike. We can often see whole Tuna being prepared for selling. We will try fresh sashimi, and see the best of what is in season this time of year. Join a tasting session where we try new and unique food every time we tour! You will not find this on any other Tsukiji tour! Visit a shrine with 300+ years of history.
We start off with our own special Tsukiji breakfast. Spend time touring the specialty fish market while visiting seafood vendors that make Tsukiji world famous and have elected to stay here rather than move. Special tasting break with seasonal bites and then tour the bustling outer market where you will try more famous foods from the area, learn about the history and future of the market community and end your tour with a green tea experience in one of Japan’s most beautiful imperial gardens a short walk away.
During our market experience you will find many great things to purchase. Many vendors do not take credit cards so please bring cash in local Japanese currency so you can take home some wonderful souvenirs. Many guests like to purchase a Japanese cooking knife as a memory of our Tsukiji day, knives range from 8,000 yen to 70,000 yen or more (80.00USD to over 700.00USD).

Our guide, Jennifer, was not only knowledgeable and personable, but she gave us unique insights into Japan, from the perspective of someone who has lived, worked and studied in both the US and Japan. She speaks perfect English (and I assume Japanese, since most people treat her as a native). She is articulate, uses helpful visual aids, and is not a clock watcher. After two weeks in country, Jennifer really helped us understand what we had experienced. Oh, by the way, the food was excellent. Jennifer is highly recommended.
Dear Henry, Thank you for booking our tour, and for taking the time to write a review! We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the entire course trying out the foods and had a great time with our guide, Jennifer. Our tours aim to provide a truly unique experience, and we are thrilled that we were able to meet your expectations. We look forward to welcoming you back to our tours in the future. Sincerely, Nassha | Admin
