A highlight of our trip to Tokyo!
Satoko was the absolute best guide! She was so knowledgeable about the history of the market and everything that was sold there. She was also just great company and a lot of fun to spend our morning with. It was definitely a highlight of our trip - I'd recommend this for anyone traveling to Tokyo!
Very fun and informative!
Satoko was an amazing tour guide!! We are so happy we had her to show us around the busy market! She is very informative and we learned so much about the market and the history of it as well. The tour was split into 3 areas: the fruit and vegetable area, the fish market and also the area where all the food vendors are located. We also made a pit stop at the Shrine and learned the origin and meaning of "itadakimasu"
The fruit and vegetable area was pretty calm, all the beautiful foods and vegetables were packaged waiting to be sold or auctioned off. We saw a bunch of different produce that we've never seen before and was surprised at how much of the produce is imported from all over the world.
The fish market was busy and there was so much to see. We're so glad we had Satoko to show us around because it can be intimidating navigating the chaotic market. We have never seen tuna so fresh before. We got to try fresh fish cake and dried squid samples. Delicious!
The food vendor area was probably our favorite part of the tour. We got to sample dried grasshoppers, dehydrated plums, matcha cookies, dried seaweed, tuna and whale sashimi and clams! Everything was so good! Satoko gave us restaurant recommendations for places to get sushi after the tour. Highly recommend this tour!! :D
Awesome Tour! Highly Recommended!
We loved Satoko's tour! We highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to go to the fish market. The tour is great value for your money, much less expensive than the other fish market tours and just as good! She takes you through a tour of the vegetable section and the fish market, and explains about the different types of fish. She is very knowledgeable about the market. She also takes you through a tour of the outer market and recommends good sushi places (that are not touristy!). We liked her so much that after the tour we invited her to eat lunch with us at her favorite sushi restaurant. It was one of the best meals of our trip.
Great Tour with Satoko!!!
We learned a lot about the market and saw a lot of hidden places!!!
And sushi was absolut great!!!!
Great morning spent at fish market with personable & friendly guide
Our guide made the tour of fish market fun & interesting. Bought some yummy produce, daughter got to hold an octopus, and we even got a great tip on where to go buy a specific baseball item we were looking for. Super helpful and knowledgeable.
An incredible tour from a knowledgeable and friendly guide
Our guide, Satoko, led us on an amazing journey through both the inner and outer markets of Tsukiji. She was incredibly fun, and also extremely knowledgeable about the market and all of the food, seafood, and produce being sold there. I was consistently impressed that we could ask questions about interesting looking fish or anything else, and she was completely on point with fascinating answers. As a food lover and home cook, the tour was food-trivia heaven!
Thank you so much, Satoko! Your tour was a definite highlight of our time in Japan!
A great tour of Tsukiji market
A really interesting and informative tour. Our guide, Satoko, was enthusiastic and introduced us to some interesting foods and best non touristy places to eat great sushi at Tsukiji:) She was very knowledgeable and had many facts and figures! Highly recommended!
Excellent tour for family with kids
First, I am so glad that we went to Tsukuji with a guide and would strongly recommend everyone not to try on their own. The market is very busy - unaccompanied visitors were asked to leave the market and come back after 10 am (which is when vendors are pretty much gone from the market). Dontr try to do it on your own - the money you pay for the tour are well worth it. Our guide, Satoko, was very knowledgable and definitely went out of her way to show our kids (10 and 12 yo) to show variety of exotic fish, vegetable, and fruit, provided good historical, cultural, and scientific background to the market scene. She also took us to great placed to sample things and then to a restaurant which was very inexpensive and great quality food. Our tour happened on heavy rain cold day and if it would not be for Satoko care, we could have been miserable, uncomfortable, and would miss a great deal of excitement!
Our host Satoko was very knowledgeable and lots of fun. She went above and beyond our expectations. A perfect tour!
