Join our morning tour of the Inner and Outer markets of Tsukiji. See the largest fish market in the world from an insider’s perspective. Taste specialties from the area, things you simply cannot find anywhere else. We know all the hidden gems and will make sure you have a chance to taste the many flavors related to fish cookery. Start out with an amazing coffee and a tour overview at one of Tokyo’s best artisanal coffee spots.
There are a lot of visitors in the market, and a lot of other tours that just go from expected to expected– the obvious stuff. We go beyond what everyone else does to find delicious vendors and chefs who are passionate and love the market and enjoy sharing the best stories, food and flavors of Tsukiji.
Seasonal sashimi/sushi, other fresh fish, original recipes, and a tasting session where we try new and unique food every time we tour! You will not find this on any other Tsukiji tour!
We start off in the area where local fish vendors have their morning meal for your own special Tsukiji breakfast. Spend time touring the inner wholesale market- seeing some of the 700+ seafood specialists that make Tsukiji world famous. Stop off and get a blessing at the local shrine. Special tasting break with seasonal bites and then tour the bustling outer market where you will try more famous foods from the area, learn about the history and future of the market community and end your tour with a delicious sweet snack that you will only find here! As we explore this food heaven you will have a chance to try 10-12 different dishes and food tastings.
During the outer market experience you will find many great things to purchase. Most vendors do not take credit cards so please bring cash in local Japanese currency so you can bring home some wonderful souvenirs. Many guests like to purchase a Japanese cooking knife as a memory of our Tsukiji day, knives range from 5000 yen to 70,000 yen or more (50.00USD to over 700.00USD).
