Our guide Chihiro was terrific. Her English was excellent and she was extremely knowledgeable about not only the area and the markets but Tokyo as well. There were only four of us on this tour which was a perfect number as it allowed us to move through the areas with ease.
Chihiro also offered us advice about other activities in Tokyo and was kind enough to email me with directions for the metro to other areas we wished to see.
I had the most fantastic time with Mr. Yukio. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, hardworking. We made a good 2 hours at different parts of the Tsukiji market. I tried to keep myself a bit hungry which was hard given so much you can to try there. Yukio made sure you take the best of the many varieties offered. We also had sake tasting before making it Asakusa market which is mostly for buying souvenirs. Thank you
My sister and I had a wonderful time with Michiko...she was very informative on Japanese etiquette, and she bought us different kinds of things to taste and experience. Japanese omelet, oysters, sake, green tea, delicious and super fresh sushi, Japanese light and fluffy pastry. She took us to a rooftop to oversee the Tsukiji Market and got a glimpse of Mount Fuji off in the distance. We took a train to Asakusa and went to a wonderful shopping area that led to a Temple. I really enjoyed my time with Michiko and I would highly recommend this tour! Don't miss out on this one, and be sure to come hungry, as you will be eating quite a bit! :-
Being foodies, Tsukiji market is an amazing place and to have our guide Sachimi show us around in detail, made it a truly memorable experience, especially since we not Japanese speakers. The wholesale side of the market will be moving to its new location sometime in the future, so we are happy to have the tour at its current historic location. The tour was also extremely good value as it includes food and sake tastings, a sushi lunch, as well as a tour and tea at Asakusa. The tour involves a lot of walking that helped to burn all those calories . A highlight of our Tokyo stay. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting Tokyo.
We took this tour in December 2016 and loved it. Our guide was Yurika and she was the best! Very patient, kind, and knowledgeable. She had relationships with the vendors and made it really smooth for us to get all the food samples. We even got traditional sake cups, very cool. The tour was small they keep all their tours to five people or less I believe, which makes it a very personal experience. I HIGHLY recommend!!
Our tour guide, Sayoko, was extremely kind and informative throughout the entire tour. She knew exactly how to navigate some of the more crowded and complicated areas, and was able to find alternative options for food when some of the stands we stopped at had lines that were too long. She's not only very knowledgeable about the tour, but also about the rich cultural history of the areas we were going through.
