What to Expect

Tsukiji Fish Market is one of the top tourist district destination in Tokyo, as many as 42,000 visitors a day! It consists of two main areas-the inner market and the outer market. Tokyo governor decided to relocate the inner market to Toyosu new market in the next year, 2018. It might be your first and last chance to visit there! We will go to both places. The inner market is the wholesale market for the professionals where about 480 kinds of marine products are traded. You can have a close look at various kinds of fish and shellfish like tuna, eel, octopus, sea urchin and more! There are about 800 small family-run retail shops in the inner market, each shop has own specialty selling foods like tuna, eel and so on. So you can enjoy seeing from many different things not only merchandises but also workers, shops, and the human interactions in Tsukiji. Inside the market, intricate narrow streets are like a maze but I'll take you anywhere you're interested in safely.
In the outer market, there are about 400 retail shops which are open to the public. Almost all kinds of Japanese ingredients can be found here.
This is like a kitchen of Japanese cuisine. You can buy Japanese food, seasonings,tea, knives, dishware wrapping goods and so on. Of course you can taste and eat fresh seafood here.

Tsukiji is a must-see place in Japan. I truly recommend you to join this tour and experience the traditional Japanese food culture!

The combination of this tour and Making Sushi program is great, but please note that I can only accept the offer three days before your tour date.

Reminder!
*If you have small children, please let me know in advance. Many Cars, trucks and turret trucks run in the inner market and the market is generally for the professionals, not for tourists. In some cases, I will take you only to the Outer Market and Namiyoke shrine for your children's safety concern.
*Tsukiji Inner market will allow to get in maximum 5 people including a guide.
*As the Tsukiji inner market will close and the new market will open in Toyosu on Feburary 2017 (tentative schedule), this tour will be end on January 2017.

Hi, Konnichiwa! I'm Yukiko. I am a Government Certified Guide Interpreter and a Registered Nurse. I also have a license for being a food sanitation manager.
I was born and raised in Tokyo. I used to teach Japanese culture to local elementary school students when I stayed in Canada, America and New Zealand. My happiest moments with these children were when they look forward to another lessons every week. It was a challenging job but this experience broaden my horizon and prompted me to become an English tour guide.
If you take my tour, you will learn deeply about everything that comes into your view, get local information and experience many things.
I am a mother of a four years old girl. So I'd be glad to welcome families with young children and I can arrange a tour depending on your situation. Please feel free to ask.

I'd like to make your stay in Tokyo a real pleasant one.

Thank you, Arigatou!

“ Great half-day tour of Tsukiji Market ”

I really enjoyed the Tsukiji market tour with Yukiko. Noy only did she demonstrate the history of the market but also introduce a lot of tradition of the market. Last but not least, the lunch at the sushi restaurant is one of the best I have ever had. Thanks!

My wife and I are avid travellers and have taken guided tours all over the world and have found Yukiko's to be one of our favorites thus far! She was timely in all her communications, provided us with plenty of information/maps of the locations prior to our arrival in Japan, and left me assured that we would be getting an excellent tour. She came prepared (even showed up early to our meeting location) and spoke perfect English. I would highly recommend Yukiko as a guide for your travels in Japan! We felt as if we were taking a tour with a friend and not a hired guide... Thanks again for everything Yukiko!!

Our family wants to thank Yukiko for excellent tour of Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. We requested Yukiko to meet us at our hotel and she a few minutes early but was willing to wait for us. We had our daughter with us in a stroller and she planned all the routes accordingly so we could take elevators and ramps everywhere we went. She even drew a map for us for when we departed we could find our way back! She also found us a place to store our stroller so we could go inside the fish market because they did not allow strollers. While walking to toward the fish market she was showed historical landmarks. She was more than willing to take photographs. Not only that, Yukiko was great at taking photos! She took it horizontally and vertically just to be sure. We had an great time at the fish market and Yukiko was knowledgeable. Her English is good and she is very nice and polite. As we departed, Yukiko gave our daughter some origami as a gift. She loves and still cherishes it. Thank you so much Yukiko! Do not hesitate to book a tour with Yukiko. It was such a pleasure and treat to be guided by a true professional.
