You have probably heard that the wholesale fish vendors have moved — But this part of town is still one of the best and most inspiring areas in all of Tokyo, home to delicious restaurants and market shops, some dating back over 100 years or more! See things you simply cannot find anywhere else. We know all the hidden gems and will make sure you have a chance to explore with us even from your own home.
We will visit the 65 specialty vendors who decided NOT to move to Toyosu at the wholesale building. They have remained in Tsukiji in a custom-made facility great for workers and visitors alike. We can often see the whole Tuna being prepared for selling. You can see the best of what is in season this time of year. Visit a shrine with 300+ years of history.

I have to admit, I wasn’t sure how a virtual food tour would go without being there to see and taste things. But it was AMAZING. I’m so impressed with how Arigato has adapted these tours for online. The guide was engaging and funny. The tour was very informative and covered everything from food history, to geography, and even learning some Japanese terms … but all in a very fun interactive way. –Rachelle_Lucas_FL Orlando, FL
