Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market Tour

Experience this unique Tsukiji Market food tour, complete with a visit to the mini wholesale area, culminating in a super-fresh sushi meal with sake.

Explore the Tsukiji Market, popularly known as the “Kitchen of Tokyo,” in this unique food tour experience, complete with sushi and sake. While the Tsukiji Fish Market auction has been moved to Toyosu, Tsukiji Market is still as vibrant as ever and boasts some of the freshest fish in Tokyo. Experience the wide variety of Japanese foods on this Tsukiji Fish Market Tour, from finger foods to the most culinarily exquisite bites that the market has to offer. This tour also takes you along to the mini wholesale area, where you can still see different types of fishes and foods being sold, and eat the freshest tuna. At the end of the tour, you’ll be taken to an authentic sushi restaurant and try the high-quality sushi available. And what pairs better with sushi than Japanese sake!

Note: While the Tsukiji Fish Market has been closed since October 2018, and relocated to Toyosu, the Tsukiji Outer Market still offers the freshest seafood straight from Toyosu and the same scrumptious bites!

Tsukiji Market: The early-morning hustle and bustle and the spectacle of whole fish being expertly carved right before your eyes, combined with the array of local delicacies you can’t find anywhere else, make Tsukiji Market a must-see 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. 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. Additionally, Tsukiji Market has such a long and rich history in Japan, and some market shops and restaurants have been in business for over 100 years!
