On this ultimate sushi-lover’s tour, you'll visit the world's largest fish market — Tsukiji Fish Market — and try your hand at making sushi, which you’ll then enjoy for lunch. Learn from a sushi master how to make both rolls and nigiri, and meet Tokyo locals who are also in the class. Subway transport to the market with a guide is included.

Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Lunch included
  • Hotel pickup included
Your sushi-themed morning tour starts at the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal in Tokyo, where you’ll meet your guide and head by subway to the Tsukiji Fish Market, the world's largest fish and seafood market and one of the largest wholesale markets of any kind.

The market is split into the inner market, the wholesale portion that is restricted to visitors, and the outer market, the retail portion that features food stands, restaurants and shops selling Japanese kitchen tools. With your guide, stay in the outer market for about 45 minutes to explore the many stalls packed with exotic seafood and learn about the types of fish you’ll work with at your cooking class.

Next, your tour continues at a popular sushi restaurant for your sushi-making class. This cooking school is popular with both locals and visitors, and your guide will translate your teacher’s instructions.

Learn the art of making sushi — both rolls and nigiri — before sitting down to enjoy your creations for lunch.

Your tour concludes at the entrance to Tsukiji Station, where your guide can direct you to your preferred location.

    Excellent tour. Walked around the fish market, similar to an open bizarre. The sushi class was fun and very informative.

    It was fantastic! Everybody's reviews I'd read prior to booking stated how good this tour was and they were right! I'm really glad I did it. The walk around the Tsukiji Fish Market - although fairly quick, was enough I went back afterwards but really we saw most of it and the tour really was enough. It was good to stay with the group even though we were offered the opportunity to go through the inner market and meet up with the tour guide afterwards although it was busy and I and a couple of others didn't want to get lost. The outer market is interesting and we got to see the small kitchens the cooks work in in the restaurants. It was good having someone in the know and someone whose English was very good guide us through the market as well as keep us safe from the whizzing forklifts and other vehicles.

    The sushi workshop was excellent! I would definitely find a way to include it in the next school trip as I think students would love it. I loved it. I had originally thought I knew how to make sushi, but learning it from a real Japanese chef and trying not only maki zushi rolled sushi but also hand rolled sushi and nigiri fish on rice and learning and trying the proper technique. It was fun, engaging and was lovely meeting people from other cultures.
