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.
*The inner market opens to public from 11:00 am from June 15th 2018.
*As the Tsukiji inner market will close in October 2018, this tour will be conducted by the end of September.

“ trouper guide ”

Yukiko was our tour guide for June 5, 2018. Yukiko was an excellent tour guide, she was flexible as far as customizing our tour and knowledgeable about the Japanese culture and history. She researched and answered all our questions, and provided many insights and recommendations as to how we can enjoy our Japan tour. She took us to an amazing revolving sushi place, which the whole family enjoyed. Best of all, Yukiko was so accommodating to my aunt who had a slight mobility problem. I think this made the tour extra special as she was so patient with her. I recommend Yukiko to everyone who is going to Japan for the first time.

“ Amazing Ambassador ”

We were coming to Japan as a 3 generation family with ages 6-76. We were initially skeptical about any tour guides thinking we could manage on our own with HYPERDIA and google maps. Wow we were all surprised at how easy it was to maneuver with a guide the first day. We booked two half days and asked all the questions we could so we could figure out what we wanted and how to move forward. Yokiko made our trip a breeze. She became a part of our family looking out for us and asking questions in Japanese to locals to get us the answers. Our smallest was so sad she wasn’t going to be joining us thru the rest of the trip. She is amazing and spent time getting to know each one of us so she could help us enjoy her country. There is not a better guide in Tokyo.

“ Tokyo highlights in 1 full day ”

Yukiko was a fantastic tour guide. She created an itinerary that showed us highlights of Tokyo in a day. The tour was fun, historical and varied. Saw temples and shrines, learned about Japanese history and culture. Rode the train and rode the boat. Yukiko was prompt and very nice. I highly recommend her as a tour guide to anyone who visits Tokyo.

“ Great way to start our Japan trip! ”

Having never been to Japan before and not speaking a word of Japanese we were a bit nervous about our trip. This tour was a great introduction to Japan and really helped us feel a lot more at ease. Yukiko was a fabulous guide both informative and very friendly. We did half day tour with visits to the tsujiki fish market, hamarikyu gardens and finished up with a boat taxi up to the asakusa area. She also provided us with a nice introduction to the transit system (including maps and how to buy pasmo cards) which gave us the confidence that we'd be able to navigate around on our own. Overall a fantastic experience which I would recommend to anyone.
