I had the most fantastic time with Mr. Yukio. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, hardworking. We made a good 2 hours at different parts of the Tsukiji market. I tried to keep myself a bit hungry which was hard given so much you can to try there. Yukio made sure you take the best of the many varieties offered. We also had sake tasting before making it Asakusa market which is mostly for buying souvenirs. Thank you
This tour was very interesting but not what we were expecting. Our guide Noriko was very good and really informative. We had plenty of ingredient tasting opportunities, a sushi lunch and a Japanese tea with desserts. However, there was no cuisine tasting as would be more typical.
The tour takes you through the food stalls and shops outside the Tsukiji Fish Market to try some Japanese food and Sake. It was fun looking at all the stalls and trying some of the foods and Sake. Our guide Toshi was excellent in explaining about the foods. The trip up to Asakusa was nice, but it was very touristy with lots of souvenir shops. Overall, I would recommend this tour.
This is a great tour of Tsukiji market and fish market. If I were to make one change to the tour, I would stop the tour after the fish market rather than going to Asakusa. Asakusa has really nothing to do with food and since we had already seen it on another tour really wasn't that impactful for us. Would like the tour to start and end at Tsukiji and then we could have had lunch at Tsukiji with all of our new found knowledge of the area. As a part of the tour we did eat at a great sushi place before taking the subway to Asakusa.
This tour was amazing!
