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.

“ Awesome experiences for us ”

I could not find a better words to describe your services for our family. We are well taken care of, having you is the best experience that we could ever have. As a family with a 4-years and 7-years kids, we are already restricted by the time and movement that we have during tour. However, we still tour Tokyo on places that we wanted to visit and also based on your recommendations. We enjoy the trip to Karamura and Tsuji Market and experiencing the local food and of course, the Kimono. Now, we are back home, we missed you so much. We hope to see you again.

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for your heartfelt review! I am really appreciated. On the second day, I was so impreesed that your children showed me how to count in Japanese and gave me a card! They are so adorable and sweet girls. I spent a great time with uou and your family that will never forget. I also miss you all. Hope to meet you again in Singapore and Japan! Domo Arigatou!!

“ A memorable tour with Yukiko ”

We were happy to engage Yukiko for our trip to Kawaguchiko. Yukiko planned a detailed itinerary for us and all panned out smoothly. She was also patient. We had a great time and our trip was memorable. Without Yukiko , I don't think it was easy to have made it by ourselves especially with a young kid with us. Thanks Yukiko and we hope to meet you again !

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for taking my Kawaguchiko tour! I am very appreciated for your review about the tour. I'm glad that you had experiences both nature and culture throughout Aokigahara jyukai hiking, ice cave, going up to the mountain by rope way and visiting pagoda. Mt.Fuji was a bit shy on that day, but we could see many other things and tried to eat local foods which we can not experience in Tokyo. There are many more attractions in other places. I hope you will visit Japan again with your family. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ Pop and Modern Sights of Tokyo ”

We were very fortunate to select Yukiko as our guide for a day to see the modern sights of Tokyo. She met us at our hotel wearing a beautiful kimono, which carried respect as we moved through crowded trains and streets to visit Meiji Shrine, Harajuku, Shibuya Crossing and Akihabara. She was very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and well-organised and easily communicated with us in English. We thought Yukiko was delightful and we thoroughly recommend her for any tour she offers. Thank you for a very enjoyable day, Yukiko!

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for your very nice review! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and also other visiting sites in different cities. From the beginning, we had a great time to talk about many topics. Especially I impressed about several Australian sports like net ball and Australian foot ball. I really like this job to meet everyone like you from all over the world and exchange something invisible, but very valuable things. Domo Arigatou Gozaimashita!!

“ One day tour based on on our request ”

From the beginning to the end this was an excellent tour guide and tour. Yukiko was on-time at our hotel to pick us up, dressed with a kimono which impressed us. She is very knowledgeable about the city's history and sites we visited. She showed us how to ride the metro so we could move around the city on our own during the days following her tour. Very accommodating with our requests and suggested sites we liked very much. She is fluent in English and taught us a few words and phrases in Japanese. We strongly recommend Yukiko as your tour guide in Tokyo. Thank you, Yukiko, for making our visit so memorable and we look forward to seeing you again! Arigatou Gozaimasu!

Yukiko:
Thank you so much for sending your review!! I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed the tour and you could move around the city by your own with no troubles. I also could learn some easy Spanish from you. On the other day, I could understand meaning of one menu at Spanish restaurant! Thank you once again. I look forward to meeting you again and hope to speak some more Spanish until then! Muchas Gracias!!

“ Extraordinary tour guide ”

Yukiko is an amazing, talented, knowledgeable, and fun tour guide. From the moment of booking she communicated, made suggestions, altered the itinerary according to our needs and throughout the 2 days we were with her she investigated details and made arrangements for the rest of our trip after we would not be with her. I recommend her without hesitation. You'll be lucky if you are able to schedule her.

Yukiko:
Thank you so much, Robert!! I appreciated your heartfelt review! You are very healthy, delightful, friendly and have very nice family. I learned a lot about your culture and custom. I hope to visit your country someday in the future. Thank you once again. Please enjoy the rest of your trip! Domo Arigatou!!
