    Great tour

    This was such a wonderful tour and experience! I don't think we would have ventured off on our own into this enormous market. The tour guide was amazing and explained everything to us. He was able to tell us what all we were looking at and offered a great place to eat.

    Wonderful! Exceeded our expectations

    We loved our tour of the Tsukiji Fish Market Tour with Atsushi. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the history and current operations of the market. The private aspect of the tour was great because it was at your own pace, you could always hear Atsushi, and ask him questions. It felt like we were being shown around by a friend, not a large touristy group.

    Our sushi lunch was probably our favorite authentic sushi experience we had in Japan. Atsushi even helped us with other aspects of our trip outside of the tour. We visited around the NYE holiday, so he called a store that we wanted to visit to make sure they were open before we left, and gave us recommendations for ramen spots, and translated for us at a knife store. These above-and-beyond things make us wish could give Atsushi six stars - we would highly recommend!

    Tsukiji Fish Market Tour

    We appreciate Mr. King's tour. He patiently explained types of toro, history and cooking ingredients. We love the sushi restaurant he recommends!

    Fabulous

    Our family was taken around the fish market by Atsushi who met us at the Tsukijoshijo station. He took time to explain to us about the inner and outer markets and some of the history surrounding the fish market. He then took us around both markets, including the fruit and vegetable market, ensuring that we got experience the locals at work and answering all of our questions. Atsushi explained the importance of watching out for the locals travelling around the market at high speeds, delivering or procuring fish. This was a really informative and fun experience and at the end of our tour we enjoyed the best sushi we have ever tasted.

    Knowledgable guide and fantastic tour

    After reading many reviews and tour info, we decided to start our fish market tour at a later time at 9.30 with Tsukiji King with our kids (8 & 6). It was a great time for all of us and the kids enjoyed the tour without issues.

    Very good guide pleasure

    Couldnt have gone around without him!

    The Tsukiji King is as knowledgeable as everyone says he is in the reviews. He had a guidebook with visuals in regards to where we were going and how the market was broken down. He took us to various food places and was very patient with all our needs. The restaurant he recommended and reserved to us was fantastic. Im sad to hear that Tsukiji Market will be moving but then that means new researching and a plan for the King! If I come back to Japan and want to check out the new market, I will make sure to contact him again!

    Fun and educational tour with great sushi!

    The private Tsukiji Fish Market Tour was one of our highlights during our Tokyo visit. Great guide, spoke very good English, that got us into the right places. The old fish market will be demolished in the fall of 2016, so see the place before it is gone. A great tour and guide. You will see both the inner and outer markets. We ate Edo sushi after the tour. Quit the experience and highly recommended!

    Best Experience Ever!

    I'm so glad we booked this tour!

    Tsukiji King took us to both the inner and outer markets as well as some extra spots where we could get a great view of the whole structure. Throughout the whole experienceTsukiji king was an amazing source of knowledge. He provided us many insights on the workings of the market, the different products being sold as well as great food stall recommendations! - it's safe to say we would have been lost without him!

    At the end of the tour, Tsukiji king took us to an amazing uni restaurant and helped us explain/translate the japanese menu and order - it was one of the most amazing meals we had ever had!

    Thank you Tsukiji King for one of the best mornings in Japan!
