This half day activity is an experiential one where you will get to learn about the wide variety of seafood and fish in Japan’s largest fish market and try your hand at making the most iconic dish of Japan – Sushi. Your tour will start with a morning pickup at the Hamamatsucho Bus Terminal in Tokyo, where you’ll meet your guide and head by subway to the Tsukiji Fish Market, one of the largest wholesale markets of any kind.

The market is split into the inner market, the wholesale portion that is restricted to visitors, and the outer market, the retail portion that features food stands, restaurants and shops selling Japanese kitchen tools. Explore the outer market for about forty-five with your guide and explore the stalls packed with rare, exotic seafood. You will also get to choose the fish you want to cook at your cooking class. Next, your tour continues at a popular sushi restaurant for your sushi-making class. This cooking school is popular with both locals and visitors, and your guide will translate your teacher’s instructions. Learn the art of making sushi — both rolls and nigiri — before sitting down to enjoy your creations for lunch. Your tour will conclude at the entrance of the Tsukiji Station where your guide can help you with the directions to your preferred location.
