Amazing way to explore an old fish market within Tokyo. Naomi is an amazing guide who taught us so much about Japan itself, as well as numerous types of foods and treats within Japanese cuisine. Then we were treated to sushi making with Miwa! Beautiful food and traditional ways of making it. And I learned my new favourite saying ... “oishi!!!” *delicious Thanks so so much from Georgina and Seamus.

Really informative and fun tour and cooking class. Amazing value!

Naomi was an excellent tour guide who clearly loves the Tokyo area and culture. In the fish market she showed us many shops and talked about the things they sold. After that we went to a more commercial part of town for the cooking class. Our instructor, Hitomi, was similarly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The food was amazing, I was inspired to buy a tamago pan so I can start making it at home! I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. If you have any interest in sushi or the fishing industry you owe it to yourself to take this tour.

What an amazing experience!

This was a fantastic experience! We went to both the exterior and interior markets. The exterior market is a combinaion flea market and food court. So many vegetables we have never seen before. So many places to buy lunch! The we shifted to the interior market. This is the commercial market and it is open to the public. We walked among the e saw so many dish we have never seen before. We walked through narrow pathways that were shared with workers walking, riding bikes, on motorcycles, and even small equipment! Truly remarkable and once in a lifetime experience!
