We will visit Tsukiji fish market (inner and outer but not tuna auction) area and Ryogoku where is famous for Sumo , Ukiyoe and history. In Ryogoku we will visit 3 museums which are Sumo museum, Sumida Hokusai museum which is Ukiyoe museum, and Edo-Tokyo museum which is a history museum. Also, you can enjoy good food in Tsukiji or Ryogoku whichever you prefer to.

What to Expect

Tsukiji is an exciting place to visit to see different world from our normal life. There are 2 markets which are inner and outer market and you will see both. The inner market is for professional people to trade fishes and vegetables. There are almost 800 whole sale stores in the market and each store has its own specialty. It is fun to see many fishes and vegetables in original shape. And sometime you may find very rare items. But inner market is not designed for public and we must recognize we are not the first one to be paid attention.
On the contrary, Outer market is for retailers and fun to see Japanese food culture. You can buy whatever you like and there are many restaurants to offer their own original dishes. If you like Tsukiji, you can spend easily 3 hours .
Ryogoku is another very exciting place in Tokyo. It is about 15 minutes ride from Tsukiji. Ryogoku is famous for Sumo because there is an arena named "Ryogoku Kokugi-Kan" for grand sumo tournament held 3 times a year. In Ryogoku area, there are many kinds of sumo related restaurants and stores. In Tsukiji, everybody wishes to eat Sushi. Then In Ryogoku, "Chan-ko" which is a special food for Sumo wrestlers, is very popular. Some Chan-ko specialty restaurants are run by former professional Sumo wrestlers. And some restaurants have Sumo ring inside of the restaurants. Also, you can buy Sumo related souvenirs at specialty stores.
Inside of Ryogoku Kokugikan, there is a "Sumo museum" which is opened for public except grand sumo tournament period. You can see some special items actually used by sumo wrestlers.
Next to Ryogoku kokugi-kan, there is a huge building which is Edo Tokyo museum. This museum is specialized for 17th century and after. This is a great place to know people's life in Edo which is current Tokyo and you will find many new facts in this museum. If you are interested in Japanese history, you can easily spend 3 hours or more. Even you are not familiar with Japanese history, you can enjoy various displays.
After Edo Tokyo museum, we will visit a newly opened Sumida Hokusai museum which locates 10 min. walk from Edo Tokyo museum. Sumida is a name of location and Hokusai is a famous Ukiyoe painter who made over 30,000 drawings in his life. In the museum, Hokusai's actual drawings are displayed and you will learn more.

This tour is very exciting and if you have request to visit other places, please tell me in advance. I will arrange the tour as much as possible to meet your request.

“ Full day of Tokyo sights ”

Hiroshi-san showed us around Tokyo during a full day tour. He came to pick us up at our hostel, early, and we saw Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple, Tsukiji market, had lunch at a very nice sushi restaurant, visited the Hokusai art museum, the Fukagawa Edo museum, and the Sumo museum near the stadium complete with a visit to the Sumo clothing store. So you can see that you should prepare for a full day of walking and learning! Hiroshi-san is very knowledgeable about all the history of the places we visited and can answer almost all of your questions. He adapted the tour to our specific interests when we exchanged emails prior to the trip and even prepared tour materials in English to give to us about other places we were planning on visiting on other days in Japan. He put in alot of effort to make sure he is very knowledgeable on the sights of Japan. I would recommend taking his tour, especially early in your trip so he can help you get your bearings in the country. We enjoyed our day with Hiroshi-san.

“ Delightful Tokyo ”

Hiro met us as planned, communicated well and explained many things we saw and about life in Japan. We went to the Meiji Shrine, many interesting buildings in Tokyo and a large Temple with a long street of shopping we had a nice tempura lunch at a restaurant frequented by locals. Last he took us to Chinatown back in Yokohama where our ship was docked. Was a nice day and I recommend Hiro for a guide if you are visiting Yokohama or Tokyo
