Our guide Yoshino is very good. Knowledgeable, thoughtful and gave us a lot of information about the different local food. She was very patient with all our questions. We highly recommend her as a guide for the Tsukiji market tour. The sushi making class was also very good. The chef was a good teacher and the food was good.

I booked this tour because I thought it would be a great combination and a fun activity to do with other people. I often travel alone and it’s nice to occasionally have some interactive time. Our guide, NAOKO, did a fantastic job explaining various items in the market, taking us to some interesting stalls we might have otherwise missed and explaining not only the foods we were tasting but also their cultural significance. There were a couple of kids on the trip and she also worked to engage them and keep their interest. We stopped at the local Shinto shrine for a quick cultural lesson. I think it would be easy to miss, so I was glad Naoko took the time to take us there.
The sushi lesson was fun and just challenging enough! I enjoy cooking so I now feel a little more confidence possibly trying this out at home. Plus, we ended up having a pretty large lunch as part of the package and, yes, we ate our own creations.
I think the only think I might has liked to do is possibly try a few of the items for sale at the market stalls (I’m looking at you unagi!). But, I can also understand how that might interrupt the flow and slow us down.
Thank you for keeping the group relatively small—we were seven. So it never felt like a huge challenge keeping everyone together.
Thanks Naoko! ありがとうございます😊

We've done a lot of tours all over the world, so we can absolutely say this one is one of the best! We had Sachimi which was the sweetest, most wonderful and intelligent person ever! Somehow we ended up with just her (my husband and I) so it was like a a private tours! Tsukiji Fish Market is a MUST SEE when visiting Tokyo. All the delicious food stalls and sights and smells were ones to remember. We ate so much food! The inner market has moved to another location but there is still so much to eat and taste. We actually lucked out -- someone had a bought a $10,000 tuna and ended up cutting it live in the inner market! This isn't common, but we had really good timing. The sushi making class was in Ginza in a beautiful under ground restaurant -- we got to sit in a traditional-style private room and watched as the chef cut up sushi in front of us! We had the best time. Thank you Sachimi!

This tour and cooking class was so informative and a lot of fun too! I had my own private guide and she answered all of my questions, even a lot I had about japanese culture in general and where off topic! She also told me about a few recipes while wandering around Tsukiji market. From there on we went to a very cute japanese restaurant where a very nice sushi chef teached me and another group how to make sushi. The meal was so huge and it was a very fun experience. After we finished, everyone got a certificate and the recipe with all of the instructions so you can also make sushi at home. I had an amazing time, I definetly recommend this to everyone who is interested in japanese cooking and Food in general!

My friend and I really enjoyed our experience. The Fish Market was demystified by our guide. We had explored the Fish Market a few days earlier and were clueless about many of the items. We left the fish market with a much clearer understanding.

Thanks to our guide Skip for a wonderful tour through the market. Then to sushi making class, which was fabulous. They were extremely accommodating too with some dietary restrictions and dislikes. Delicious and fun day!

We liked the tour guide and nice small group for both. Cooking class and market tour. Timing is artificially long.
