Why take this tour?

You have probably heard that the wholesale fish vendors have moved — But this part of town is still one of the best food areas in all of Tokyo, home to delicious restaurants and market shops, some dating back over 100 years or more! Taste specialties from the area; things you simply cannot find anywhere else. We know all the hidden gems and will make sure you have a chance to taste the many flavors that make up the heart and soul of Japanese cuisine. 

Start out with an amazing coffee and a tour overview at one of Tokyo’s best artisanal coffee spots. Then, follow your foodie guide and head out for a special Tsukiji breakfast where locals usually go. After, you will spend time touring the specialty fish market while visiting seafood vendors that make Tsukiji world-famous and have elected to stay here rather than move.

Join this tasting session in Tsukiji where we try new and unique food every time we tour!

You will meet your guide at the designated meeting point. Your guide will provide you with an overview of the tour over a delicious cup of coffee, one of Tokyo's bests.Soon after you will walk around the outer market with around 700 stalls in the fish section and 120 shops in the fruits and vegetables section, each unique in their very own way.

Spend time strolling about the inner wholesale market, seeing some of the world's best seafood specialists that give Tsukiji its world-famous culinary reputation. You can also stop to get a blessing at the local shrine. You will stop for tastings along the way. 

You will then continue exploring the bustling outer market where you will try famous dishes from the area, learn about the history, controversy and possible future of the market community and end your tour with a delicious sweet snack.

During the outer market experience you will find many great products which you may want to purchase. Most vendors do not take credit cards, so please bring cash in the local Japanese currency.
