Do you know a fish market that is also located in Saitama near Tokyo?

Fish Market! Other than Tsukiji.

The market is called Omiya wholesale market, it's open to the public on Saturdays from 8:30am – (closing time depends on shops).

They deal in fish, meat, vegetables, fruits, dried foods, kitchen wares and so on.

 It's not crowded with tourists like Tsukiji fish market and you can encounter ordinary Japanese people out there.

The market is clean and moreover workers are kind and polite.

 After strolling the market you can enjoy yummy foods at some restaurants.

 On your way back , you can visit many places.

E.g. famous Shinto Shrine (Hikawa Jinja), Bonsai village and Bonsai museum, Railway museum, "Town of Dolls” Iwatsuki and “Little Edo” Kawagoe - you name it. 

  Access: You can go there from Tokyo by train and bus, in total it takes around one hour.

The bus schedule is limited, so don’t miss it.

Chieko designed a special tour for my 13-year-old son so that he could visit sites that specialized in Pokemon, video games, etc. She even did a test run before our visit because it was something new for her. Our son had a wonderful time and learned a lot about Japanese culture thanks to Chieko. She was wonderful!

Chieko was great. She was very personally and took me around for a half day tour around Tokyo. We went to a festival that only happens once a year which was amazing. She also showed me how to pray and what it all means. This was my first time in Tokyo and I feel as if she really helped me get the lay of the land. I would definitely recommend her.

Chieko took our group around Tokyo according to our defined schedule. The trip went smoothly and it was really fantastic. Chieko was able to explain the story to each of us in an engaging way. She is reliable, knowledgeable and flexible. We would definitely love to go on walks guided by Chieko again.
