About the tour

Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market was one of the biggest markets in the world until 2018 and has long supported the city's food culture. This tour explores both the history of the market as well as Japanese food culture over the last 400 years. You will go to down narrow alleys of the local shops and many of them have been running these businesses for over a century. The tour will stop at one of the seafood shops which mainly sells tuna. Let's check out the tuna they sell on the day of the tour and you will also learn lots of interesting facts about tuna and sushi! The tour will stop at one of the Japanese knife shops where you will see varieties of knifes and the craftsmanship. Join the morning tour in Tsukiji and explore the Japanese Food Culture. Why don't you have your sushi on your side as you virtually walk through the allies of Tsukiji. See you soon!

This is my second time in the market, and I just can't get enough of it. It is fascinating to stroll and look at the products. You learn much more than food, you learn about culture, traditions, language, etc. Yoshi was very professional and clearly an expert in this topic.

I wanted to know more about Japan. He is a lovely man, but because of the language difference, he is not as good of holding my attention. I liked seeing the markets and the food

This tour of the seafood market was wonderful. We saw many interesting edibles and really caught a glimpse of everyday life in Japan. Yoshi was kind in answering questions and engaging the audience.
