Experience Details

Build stronger teams through shopping and cooking during one of the best team-building experiences in Tokyo! Perfect for large groups, this experience starts with splitting into teams at a large commercial cooking studio in Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Market area. Groups can choose from a range of theme dishes on the menu. Next, it's shopping time! Groups will be allocated a set budget for shopping at Tsukiji Market. Armed with a provided map, teams will be unleashed into the bustling Tsukiji Market precinct, and they must work together to purchase their required ingredients in a set time frame. Racing against other teams and the clock, if needed, an instructor can also join teams to support them while shopping. Instructors will explain different ingredients available at the market and help to communicate with shop owners. Back at the cooking studio, teams will watch a detailed, hands-on cooking demonstration of 2-3 dishes hosted by an English-speaking instructor. Once the lecture is done, it's over to the teams and the game is on! Teams will collaborate and cook together to create the demonstrated dishes themselves using the local ingredients they purchased during the shopping challenge. Groups will compete to have the best teamwork, cooking skills, creativity, and overall presentation of their group dishes. After cooking, teams will vote on who did the best work, or one of the studio's staff will judge the winner. This group cooking and shopping experience allows time for team members to share their learnings about working as a team during the event. For groups who wish to extend their team building day, this event has a range of customizable cooking activities to learn new skills and challenge teams! See the different package options available. This experience is suitable for large groups such as corporate team building groups.
