Overview

Tsukiji is the largest fish market in the world in terms of sales volume as well as the quality of fish.
The wholesale area of Tsukiji fish market opens to public after 11:00AM but there are not much fish to see at that time. So, I recommend to visit outer market only.
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.

“ The best of hakone. ”

He was very good and made the best of the situation. The weather was not suitable for a Mt. fuji itinerary but we had Lake Ashi cruise and the ropeway that ran close to the Volcano. And we went to a beautiful garden. It rained a little bit that day.

“ Mt.Fuji Tour ”

Yuki was a great tour guide and was very attentive to my 7 year old son. He had a tour setup for us but he was flexible enough to accommodate our last minute changes. We enjoyed our tour and it was very memorable.

“ Clueless in Tokyo ”

My brother and I chose to travel to Tokyo even though we knew very little about the Japanese culture and city. Yuki was extremely helpful and kind. He met us at the train station and escorted us to our hotel and then we began our tour. We had selected 3 locations to tour which included a garden, the government building with an incredible view of Tokyo and the Imperial Palace. Yuki explained many details about all 3 locations. He suggested a Ramen lunch and we went to a place where the locals eat which was quite interesting. I asked Yuki to help me figure out how to get to our tour departure location (cab or subway) the next day and he was extremely helpful. I highly recommend hiring an English speaking tour guide when you arrive in Tokyo if you are unfamiliar with the city because it can be extremely confusing.

“ Modern and traditional tour of Tokyo ”

We had a wonderful time touring Tokyo with Yuki. He was thorough, knowledgeable and patient. He knew his way around Tokyo and was able to take us around everywhere. We loved learning about the shinto and Buddhist religions and how they coexist so beautifully. Would definitely recommend touring with him!
