The tour of the old fish market area and food stalls is fantastic. It gives you a great overview of the area and history and what all the crazy stuff for sale is. This is followed by a quick tour of Ginza before the sushi rolling class which is a lot of fun. Come hungry because you can buy whatever you want to sample at the market and you’ll have plenty of sushi to eat after the class. The tour is suited well for families and couples, probably wouldn’t do it if I were solo.

I had such a great time with Hatsuko and Nobu at ABC cooking class. Looking around the traditional Japanese market with Nobu before class was really cool experience and i was happy being able to get some ingredients there. Making sushi with Hatsuko also was so great time and i was so happy to learn about how to make sushi and miso soup. Definitely highly recommended for everyone who wants to get some authentic Japanese cooking styles

Amazing way to explore an old fish market within Tokyo. Naomi is an amazing guide who taught us so much about Japan itself, as well as numerous types of foods and treats within Japanese cuisine. Then we were treated to sushi making with Miwa! Beautiful food and traditional ways of making it. And I learned my new favourite saying ... “oishi!!!” *delicious Thanks so so much from Georgina and Seamus.
