Spend your morning with us exploring the famous Tsukiji Fish Market. We will start by wandering through Tsukiji’s market, which is brimming with vibrant food stalls and retail shops. This is the place to be if you’re looking for the freshest and dare we say, most delicious sushi breakfast one could ever hope for! The wholesale portion of the market where the famous tuna auction takes place has moved from the original Tsukiji site, a few kilometres across the water to Toyosu, but Tsukiji still is the best place to check and try all the products sold in Toyosu. With over 2,500 tons and 450 types of fish coming through the wholesale market every day, you’re bound to come across some foods and fish you’ve never seen before. Squid jerky, anyone? Or perhaps omelette on a stick? No matter what kind of unusual snacks you may encounter, Tsukiji promises to be an experience for all five senses. Along the way, your tour guide will explain the history of the market, all the different seafood 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. During the tour we’ll take a step back into Japanese history and experience authentic Japanese culture by visiting impressive small shrine next to the fish market. As shrines are such a sacred place, observe locals before and after passing through a torii gate and learn the way to show respect before entering the main hall of the shrine yourself. Before you go off on your own, don’t forget to ask your local guide for additional tips on where else to visit during your stay in Tokyo.

We reserve the right to change both the route and places visited within the tour. Food inclusions are subject to change, dependent on availability on the day.
