Three friendly ladies joined our activity, and visited both Toyosu fish market and Tsukiji outer market. When we entered the Intermediate fish wholesale market in Toyosu, they were surprised to see the varieties of seafood and took pictures of them at some shops. When we stopped by a tuna store, they had a chance to hold a long tuna knife. “Amazing !”, they said.
After visiting the market-related shops, where they bought green tea and miso soy bean paste, we went to Tsukiji market by van.
The lively atmosphere of the outer market attracted the cheerful ladies and made them smile more! While walking around, they enjoyed sampling Japanese dashi soup stock, beans snacks, wasabi flavored peanut and so on. One of their hobbies were cooking, so we visited a knife shop which had a long history. A wide selection of beautiful and useful knives there fascinated them.
They loved sea urchin very much, so they decided to have lunch at a sushi restaurant where they could enjoy a heaping bowl of sea urchin on top of the rice.

Two brothers from United States joined our tour. We got a big whole salmon and a big block of tuna for Sushi-making workshop, which impressed the guests very much. It was rare opportunity even for Japanese to see a whole salmon, so our chef filleted it in front of the guests. They watched it with a lot of interest. Also, they had a chance to scale the salmon with knife under the help of our chef’s direction. They said, “it was difficult but so much fun to try !” Then, they learned how to fillet horse mackerel, which became one of their sushi toppings.
They made sushi a lot and enjoyed them with sake. There were four different taste of sake, ranging from dry to sweet. Their favorite was the sweetest. Aside from sushi, our chef made some dish such as tuna steak, grilled tuna skin, grilled fish ball, which made the guests so full and happy.
