Let's visit world famous fish market! The Tsukiji Market is known as one of the world's largest fish markets handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.
In Tsukiji market are, there are two markets; Inner and Outer market. We will visit both markets and Namiyoke Shrine. Namiyoke (literally means protection against waves) shrine is a guardian shrine for the market and its traders.

What to Expect

The inner market is consists of more than 600 middle wholesalers and basically for the professionals; restaurants including sushi restaurants, fish shops, supermarkets and so on. Each shop in the inner market has its own specialty. One shop sells only tuna and other shop is for sea urchin. You will encounter a great variety of marine products and people who dedicate themselves not only to sell the highest quality products but also to hand down our food culture with pride. The outer market, meanwhile, is for the public. You can find anything related to eating and food; kitchen utensils, tableware, dried food, seaweed, tea, seasonings, knives, decoration stuff, packages,etc. Last but not least, you can't miss your chance of trying out delicious foods!

Haruko was the perfect guide for our family. Her English skills are amazing- completely up to date vocabulary and expressions. She was very flexible in lingering where we were most interested and clearly knows her history. I would highly recommend her for your Tokyo tour. She's also a lovely person!

“ A memorable morning ”

My daughter and I only had two days in Tokyo and since we have always enjoyed private guides, I decided Haruko seemed like she would fit right into our "girls adventure". We found Haruko to be very fluent in English, personable, informative, and patient. She did more than she had to do. I mentioned that we were interested in Japanese fabrics so she took us to her custom kimono tailor and they were very welcoming, although they obviously were busy with customers, and the visit was fascinating. Thank you Haruko!
