Experience Details
Once the largest fish market in the world, Tsukiji Fish Market was a wholesale market in Tokyo for fish, vegetables, and fruits. It’s was an absolute logistical marvel, with buyers and sellers bustling about in the morning, surrounded by scooters and trucks whizzing around the market. It’s long been a major attraction in Tokyo, and despite the wholesale market’s move to Toyosu in late 2018, the beauty and noise of the Tsukiji Outer Market continues to be a sensory overload, making it an exciting place to visit and get the freshest sushi around. One of the most iconic and delectable foods in Japan, you’ll be able to find sushi almost everywhere in the country, but it’s at its freshest at Tsukiji Outer Market, which gets its fish fresh from Toyosu Market every day. After you’ve visited the Tsukiji Outer Market, a street food heaven, you’ll make sushi from scratch during this Tsukiji Fish Market and Sushi Making Tour. Find out everything you ever wanted to know about sushi during this Tsukiji sushi experience. The 4-hour sushi extravaganza is the most amazing chance to learn about the ins and outs of Tsukiji Market and how to make the best sushi for yourself. You’ll explore the Tsukiji Market, sampling tasty ingredients along the way. After the tour, you’ll be taught how to make your very own sushi with the help of a professional sushi chef, and gain knowledge about the history of Tsukiji, tips about sushi preparation, as well as info about Japanese food and culture. With insider tips from your local guide, you’ll eat delicious sushi dishes, made by you! Note: The inner, auction area of Tsukiji Fish Market closed in October 2018, so you will not be able to see the tuna auction. But the Tsukiji Outer Market still has traditional shops and vendors, who have been making sushi and selling street food for decades, some establishments even have 100 years of history and are still going strong.

Experience Location
The early-morning bustle and the spectacle of seeing whole fish expertly carved right before your eyes, combined with an array of local delicacies, make Tsukiji Market a must-visit in Tokyo. While the Tsukiji Fish Market’s auction was relocated to Toyosu in October 2018, many of Tsukiji Outer Market’s street vendors and restaurants remained. Some shops and restaurants have been in business for over 100 years! And since the seafood sold at Tsukiji Market is delivered directly from Toyosu Fish Market, Tsukiji Market is still one of the best places in Tokyo for fresh seafood.
