Overview

Explore Tokyo’s kitchen through a guided tour on a gastronomical journey and soak in the tastes, smells and sights of the world’s largest fish market.

Start your day with the most delicious sushi breakfast one can hope for, at the Tsukiji’s outer market which has a bevy of lively and vibrant food stalls and retail shops. With over 2,500 tons and 450 types of fish coming through the market daily, you are bound to come across some foods and fish that you have never seen before. Savour some of the unusual snacks available here. Tsukiji surely promises to be an unforgettable experience!

Discover and learn about the vendors who work here and round off the morning with a Japanese sake tasting to whet your appetite.

Enjoy live commentary on the history of the market, all the different seafoods on offer, the legendary tuna auction (not included in the tour) and what a typical day is like for all the vendors who work inside the inner markets. We’ll stop to sample a couple of fresh foods, and you’re free to try any additional snacks at your own expense that may catch your eye or make you drool. Of course, it can be difficult to know where to start so your guide can point out some recommendations as well.

Discover the best craft and souvenir shops and meet the vendors behind the counter.

Please note

The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details. They’re a nice bunch and will happily answer any logistical questions you may have. Please give them a call at least 24 hours before your organised activity to reconfirm.

Voucher Information: No need to print! You can show your voucher on your smartphone or other device.

Since this tour starts early morning, to tackle with the crowds during rush hour on the trains and subways, please start early to get to the meeting point on time.

If you have your voucher, your booking is confirmed. You will be in small group size with maximum up to 8 people.

Please wear comfortable shoes for walking.

A visit to the new wholesale market is not included on this tour, but if you are interested in visiting, your guide will give you directions on how to get there.

As tour groups are not allowed inside the inner markets, we’ll leave you at the door to Tsukiji’s inner markets where you can go explore on your own and watch the wholesale vendors in action. Your tour leader will give you tips for exploring on your own after the tour has finished.

If you are happy with the services provided by your local guides, a tip - though not compulsory - is appropriate. While it may not be customary to you, it is of great significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels, inspires excellent service, and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Intrepid Urban Adventures destinations. Please consider this when budgeting for your extra expenses on this tour.
