WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Tsukiji Market Tour
The first half of this program features a walking tour around Tokyo's famous Tsukiji Market. For many years the largest fish market in the world, sadly the inner market, which famously held the world's most expensive tuna aunction, was moved to Toyosu in 2018.
With all the charm of 80 year's worth of history, however, the outer market continues to thrive and our expert guide will show you around its over 300 distinctive shops, restaurants, and vendors.
En route, you will see the likes of fish shops, numerous street vendors, and specialist knives shops, and stop off at Tsukiji's official shrine, Namiyoke Jinja. You will also pick up some of the ingredients you will use in your sushi making class, so you know you'll be using the best seafood and vegetables in Tokyo!
After exploring Tsukiji Market, your guide will take you back to a private home in Tokyo to try your hand at sushi-making the way Japanese families do.
In our sushi-making workshop, your nationally-accredited sushi instructor will teach you how to make 2 or more forms of sushi, as well as detail for you the history and etiquette behind the famous cuisine.
Your sushi instructor will teach you to make the following sushi types:
• Nigiri Sushi - The most traditional form of sushi. Hand-molded rice capped with a seafood, meat or vegetable topping.
• Gunkan Maki - Also known as "boat-shaped sushi." This type of sushi is wrapped in nori seaweed and is usually topped with softer ingredients such as cod roe or imitation crab.
*Please note, depending on time your sushi instructor may choose to teach more forms of sushi, if there is interest. We are also happy to accommodate any food restrictions or requests.
