Tsukiji is the largest fish market in the world in terms of sales volume as well as the quality of fish.
This tour will take you to the wholesale area as well as the outer market of Tsukiji.
You can see so many kinds of fish in the wholesale area and enjoy trying many delicious Japanese foods in the outer market.

What to Expect

1. Easier to Go; There are restrictions to enter the wholesale area. I will instruct you to follow them to make you enjoy the tour.
2. Memorable Tour; I will explain about the fish and food to make them more memorable for you.
3. Flexible Plan; The tour is very flexible according to your interest.
4. Delicious Foods; There are so many sushi bars in the outer market area and it is rather difficult for visitors where to eat. I will encourage you to taste other Japanese food, too.

I guided more than fifty times in the garden as a volunteer and studied about Japanese history and culture.

I have more than 100 tours in Tokyo as well as Yokohama, Kamakura, Hakone and Lake Kawaguchi and have been improving my tour. Therefore, I am sure that I can provide you the most impressive tour around Tokyo. It will be my great pleasure to help you to enjoy your stay in Japan. See you on my tours!! read more

“ Two very good days tour ! ”

Yuki guided our group of 10 people through Odawara, Fuji, Gotemba area. He booked a bus that fit our needs well. It was unlucky for us that those two days raining, so we couldnt maximise our picture taking of the beautiful cherry blossom trees. Yuki is very polite, humble, and assisted our group very well. Very reccomended.

“ Wonderful day in Tokyo ”

Yuki was a wonderful choice for our first trip to Japan, he was gracious and accommodating as we spent the day exploring Asakusa, Akihabara, and harbor cruise. After touring Kyoto for 3 days we needed a slower paced day. Yuki adjusted our original plan to accommodate us. It was the perfect day. Thank you .

“ Kyoto in a day ”

Yuki was wonderful. He was well prepared, answered all my questions by email and was prompt. We had a wonderful day exploring Kyoto and visiting the top sites. I know we would not have been able to see as much if we had done it ourselves. He met us at our hotel in Tokyo, helped us get the bullet train tickets at a discount, then helped navigate us through the sites we wanted to see in Kyoto ( bamboo forest, Toriii gates, golden temple). He added the Buddha temple for us and it was wonderful. We had homemade Kyoto cuisine at a local restaurant which was just perfect for our cultural experience. He then took us back to Tokyo on the bullet train. He also gave us some background and history of the shrines and temples with illustrations on his ipad. We had an amazing time and would do it again in a heartbeat. THANK YOU YUKI!!!
