Tsukiji Fish Market Food and Culture Walking Tour

Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    Eat and shop like a Japanese local during this immersive, 3-hour, food-themed trip inside Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji Market. If you want to get a sense for Japanese culinary culture, you couldn’t possibly start at a better place.

    Meet up with your guide at Tsukiji Honganji Temple, just outside the market’s main gate, in the morning. As you navigate your way through this labyrinth of all things seafood, learn from your guide about the market’s history and why many Japan’s top chefs visit here daily to pick up the freshest-quality ingredients. You never know what you might find as you stroll past the stalls of this amazing food center. You might see piles of sea urchin (uni) stacked neatly in boxes, watch as vendors carve massive Bluefin tuna or spot puffer fish floating in tanks.

    With all this walking, you’re sure to work up an appetite. Luckily, you’ll sample a tasty assortment of Japanese foodstuffs like sushi, Japanese-style omelettes, Japanese tea, sake, fried fish cakes and fresh oysters to help fuel your exploration. Finish your trip back at Tsukiji Station.

    Very knowledgeable tour guides that went above and beyond to make our trip memorable. Our tour guide (Yuko) even spent an extra hour after the tour helping us purchase a good set of Japanese cooking knives in the market. WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

    You can go with young children. Each tour company can have a different policy but since this is a walking tour, most likely young children don't have to pay since they won't eat neither.
