Tsukiji Market, which was reclaimed from the sea during the Edo Period (the name Tsukiji literally means ‘reclaimed land’), has long been the vibrant heart of Tokyo’s culinary culture. While the inner wholesale fish market has been relocated to Toyosu, the outer market – which boasts around 400 shops – remains a lively centre for visitors and locals alike to enjoy delicious food, and purchase kitchenware and a variety of local specialities and foodstuffs.

The expert guide will share entertaining anecdotes about the local area, shops and restaurants. Visitors will stop by a local Shinto shrine where devotees pray for good fortune and success in business, protection against disasters, and fair weather and calm seas. One of the spots on the tour that aficionados of pop culture will appreciate is one of the caf・s frequented by John Lennon and Yoko Ono during their visits to Japan.
After the tour of the market, head to a sushi restaurant for a hands-on lesson with a sushi chef. Don a sushi chef jacket in preparation for the lesson. Follow the step-by-step instructions and learn how to prepare and arrange different types of sushi, including makizushi and nigiri sushi. After admiring the presentation, tuck in to the mouth-watering meal, which will be served with a side dish such as crisp, golden tempura.
Before leaving, participants will be presented with a certificate of completion – a lovely memento of this delightful experience.
