REVIEW on *******

I absolutely loved my tour with Ichi! It was really fun to be able to experience Japan more like a local rather than as a tourist. Because I was the only 1on the tour that night, he customized the food to fit my adventurous palette which I loved. I would highly recommend this tour to any1new to this area of Tokyo.

This was our favorite tour of the trip. Our guide, Ichi, was extremely knowledgeable and helpful! We would recommend this tour to everyone. You start off trying different kinds of Asahi beer. Then you go to a sake/liquor store where you try different sakes. We ended up buying a bottle cause they were very good. Ichi then walked us by Senso Ji temple and was willing to take pictures of us. We then got to eat. Ichi did the ordering for us and listened to what we like and don't like and suggested food to try based on that. Then you end the night at another restaurant for savory pancakes okonomiyaki.

My wife and I would rate this a 6star if we had a chance. Not a tour. It is an experience. Our leader Ichi did a great job of leading our small group through the chaos of a working seafood, vegetable and fruit market. He had the knowledge and patience to explain many of the processes and in answering our many questions. He then led us through the wonderful local markets enabling us to taste many of the local foods and drinks so popular in Japan. Lunch was at a small Sushi restaurant. Ichi explained to us a little about the sushi making process and the proper way to eat sushi. I don't know if I have ever had better sushi in my life. The afternoon was spent visiting the very interesting and large Asakusa temple. We finished the experience with a local dessert. Just a great education and a great experience with great food mixed in. Highly recommend it.

REVIEW on Tripadvisor

“Wonderful way to explore the fish markets - and Make sushi with a master!”
Just finished a wonderful morning with Ichi as the guide around the markets and onto the sushi lesson. This is a great way to see parts of the market you wont get access to otherwise and Ichi had a great knowledge about the products that were new to our group, and also kept us entertained! It was an incredibly wet day but to be honest didn't matter! The fish markets are simply outstanding in size and variety and should be on your agenda with a Tokyo visit. After that we went for a Sushi Culture class with a sushi mater and had a couple of hours learning about the basics of making sushi before having a go and then eating the products of our labour! A really wonderful experience for any1interested in the intricacies of this cuisine.
Thanks again Ichi!

“Wonderful tour!”
This tour was easily our favorite tour of the trip! We had Ichi as our guide and he was extremely knowledgable and great to talk to. We lucked out and ended up just having us and Ichi on the tour. We started our tour trying different kinds of Asahi beer. Then we walked over to a small little sake/liquor shop that was run by 1of the sake masters of Japan. While there we ended up running into the sake master (he usually isn't there due to his scheduling) and got to taste some delicious sake. We ended up purchasing a bottle that the sake master had brewed himself. From there, Ichi gave us a guided tour of the Senso-ji temple area. Although we had g1to see the temple the day before, this tour was nice cause Ichi was willing to take all the photos of me and my husband that we didn't get the day before. Then he took us to get food at 1of his favorite places. Ichi did all the ordering for us after learning the kind of things we were willing to try. I can't remember everything that we had but I do remember eating some beef intestine soup, some fried tofu, chicken skewers and some fried ham. From there we ended up going to a little place for some savory pancakes (okonomiyaki). There are different kinds from different regions and they are made up of what you want to put in them (usually cabbage, onion, egg, seaweed, some kind of meat etc). Ichi walked us back to our subway line and we ended up walking by some Sumo wrestlers who were out eating for the night. We were very pleased with the experience provided by Ichi and Japan Wonder travel and would suggest the tour to everyone!

“Ichi-san did a great job.”
Our tour guide, Ichi-san, gave a great tour of the fish and outer markets. The sushi-making class was fun and tasty, too. Ich“Excellent tours”
Since I was visiting Tokyo for a limited time, I wanted to optimize my touring experience. The Tsukiji Fish Market and Asakusa Street Food and Local Drink Tours helped me to accomplish this goal. My guide on both excursions was Ichi and he was excellent. Under his guidance, we explored the inner and outer markets at Tsukiji and sampled many tasty treats. I was the only client with Ichi for the Asakusa Street Food and Local Drink Tour, and he not only made certain I sampled the best beer, sake and food Asakusa had to offer, but he also answered my many questions about religion and customs in Japan. He deferred my questions about sake to the sake master we meet during the tour. All in all, 2excellent tours and 2memorable experiences!

Took the food and drink tour, it was just myself and the guide Ichi, we started with beer tasting and then Sake and finished with more beer......the guide was excellent, plenty of great information and happy to talk about beer and food, at the Sake tasting it was great to meet the maker of his own brand of Sake, all in all a great tour and a great night.

Thank you Ichi and Japan Wonder Travel for a fun memorable morning at Tsukiji. We so enjoyed the sights, sounds and flavors of the fish market with our able and informative guide, Ichi. A visit to Tokyo is not complete without a trip to Tsukiji.

“ worth the cost ”

Yuichi-san did a great job being my guide for the day in Sapporo. We covered a lot of ground that I would not have been able to do on my own. Yuichi-san met at my hotel to start the tour. We had already communicated a few times before the date so that Yuichi could put together an itinerary of what I was interested in. My trip to Sapporo was in late October. So I wanted to see the Autumn Leaves Colors. So Yuichi-san suggested we go to Hokkaido University to see the spectacular yellow leaves there. It was AMAZING! Prior to going to Hokkaido University, We went on a short walking tour to Nojo Market and Tanuki Koji Street. I told Yuichi-san that I wanted to have beef and crab while in Sapporo. So he took me to a fantastic Teppanyaki restaurant for beef that I would never would have found on my own. After lunch it was off to Hokkaido Jingu Shrine. It was my lucky day as there was a traditional wedding going on. Was able to sneak in a few pics! Then we took the bus to the Sapporo Beer Museum to sample the Classic beer there. We concluded with dinner at an incredible crab restaurant. At the end of the day, I was amazed with how much we were able to accomplish. Great job Yuichi-san!!! Would definitely recommend Yuichi-san as your private tour guide for the day. Calvin San Francisco, California, USA

“ Seamless trip to Sapporo! ”

Yuichi was a great help in planning the perfect trip to Sapporo with my boyfriend. I already had a pretty solid idea of what I wanted to do in Sapporo but with my limited Japanese I was worried about making the appropriate bookings and reservations. I contacted Yuichi to get his help in creating an itinerary for a day trip to Jozankei and reserving restaurants around Sapporo for our meals. Yuichi was incredibly helpful and attentive. He provided recommendations for other places to go including a wonderful teppenyaki restaurant that I would never have known about without him. When I made an error in the dates I provided resulting in our reservations being made for the wrong day (my mistake, not Yuichi's), he had everything re-booked within an hour of me contacting him about my mistake. Thank you, Yuichi! We had an amazing trip that would not be possible without you!

“ Best, most accomodating personal tour guide!!! ”

Yuichi takes the time to truly listen, then customizes to client's needs, is supremely patient, knowledgeable, will do necessary research for any request and really caters to each traveler. As a college graduate in English literature, his command of the English language and Japanese history is quite impressive so communication was easy which made our tour even more enjoyable and informative. 8 hours went by so fast because he is so entertaining. Yuichi goes above and beyond. Yuichi will give you 200 per cent plus. You will be lucky if Yuichi accepts your request. And if Yuichi excuses himself to use his cell, know that he is detailed-oriented and is confirming your next appointment. Yuichi is your consumate tour guide extraordinaire!!!!! Highly-recommended!!!!
