About this activity
Though so-called Tsuikiji Fish Market has moved to the new location, the outer market still has active atmosphere of fish market. People are enjoying shopping and eating sea foods , fruits and some Japanese sweets.

First we will waik around many small shops in this outer market. Also your guide will take time for eating sushi there, if you would like (sushi i not included in the tour price).

Then, you will stroll around the quiet Japanese garden constructed in 18th century by Tokugawa Shoguns and observe an interesting duck hunting site, while enjoying the unique contrasting landscape of the traditional garden and skyscrapers. And you can enjoy Japanese traditional Macha tea and confection at a tea house(fee is not included).

After cruising on the Sumida River that is the mother river of Tokyo, the final spot you will visit is Asakusa, a historical and religious place. Walking through the oldest and energetic shopping street leading to Sensoji Temple, built in the 7th century, you will see a deeply religious side of Japanese culture.

You will find find some differences between Buddhism and Shintoism at the Asakusa shrine located next to the temple. Also you'll get a chance to try tasting some sweet samples and find souvenirs after visiting the temple.

どうもありがとうございました to Mr. Takao Kawanabe for his clear and useful explanation. At 68, he is still strong, energetic and good memory. We really enjoyed the trip on 11 Aug. Thanks God for the excellent weather, freshest fishes, safe water bus ride and many blessings along the way.

This tour was perfect for us coming off 11 days of 12-14 hour days on a group tour of Korea and Japan. Takeover was friendly, knowledgeable, polite and accommodating. We had already done a tour to the Imprrial Palace, so Takao let us take more time at the markets and gardens.

My husband and I took the private walking tour of Tsukiji Fish Market, the Hamarikyu Gardens, and the water bus on the Sumida River to Asakusa. Takao, our guide, was friendly, very knowledgeable and eager to share information about Tokyo and the places we were visiting. We took the metro with Takao, which was interesting to us and something we would not have ventured to do on our own. He was solicitous of us, making sure we did not get separated when we were in crowded areas. Never having been in Japan before, we had many questions to ask about Japan, the Japanese people, the language, etc. and Takao was happy to respond to our questions. We were very pleased with our guide and the entire tour, and we highly recommend both the tour and our guide, Takao.

Our guide was a Tsukiji expert. He was organized, professional and flexible with the interests of our group. The temples were amazing and his secret local spots to view of the city were priceless. My whole family enjoyed our tour and it was a highlight of our Japan vacation.

We had high expectations for this tour. Our guide got us around to where we needed to go, that was about it. We expected to be educated along the way...that did not happen. When we got to the fish market, we felt very rushed. We walked and looked at all the booths, and our guide walked ahead. The boat ride was nice, but we had to buy his ticket, and he did not talk to us at all on the ride. I would recommend you go to these places on your own, and take your time. Save your

Wonderful guide who provided plenty of information about Japanese culture and history. The fish market was crowded and exciting and we learned a bit about how the seafood we enjoyed at last night's restaurant made it to the table. No talk of whales though! We enjoyed the gardens and sat down with our guide in the tea house overlooking the pond for a sweet and a cup of green tea this is relaxing and great value for money. The water bus was a standard river trip but the Asakusa temple and approaches were enjoyable despite the rain.
