Overview
Take a fascinating 'deep dive' into Japanese seafood cuisine during this 3-hour combination walking tour of Tsukiji Outer Fish Market and cooking class. During your time with us, wander through what locals call "Tokyo's stomach", as you experience the sights, sounds, and of course TASTES of native culinary traditions. There, you will learn how to cook authentic Japanese meals at the largest cooking school in Japan. Top off the tour by enjoying your own creation for lunch along with a copy of the recipe and a small gift to take back home with you. 

*Due to a policy amendment of Tokyo metropolitan government, NO tour of inner wholesale fish market. 

It's just 5mins walk to amazing sightseeing spots from ABC Cooking Studio such as Tokyo Station, Ginza, and Imperial Palace! Explore the heart of Tokyo after the tour!

What to Expect
Your Tokyo walking tour and sushi class begins by meeting your guide at a location near Tsukiji Outer Fish Market. Enter the market, and see the huge variety of fresh fish and seafood on offer—from sea urchin to crab, octopus, and giant tuna. It’s a real feast for the senses, and of course there will be samples along the way. Next, you'll head to local shops to learn about Japanese kitchen tools and accompaniments, followed by visit to a shrine (time permitting). The tour progresses to a cooking class at one of the largest culinary schools in Asia, where you’ll learn washoku recipes (traditional cooking). Dishes usually include a sushi roll, a Japanese omelet, and side dishes. You'll then enjoy the meal you've made, accompanied by your choice of plum sake, wine, or soft drinks.
