What you’ll do

You’ll join one of our hosts to dive chopsticks first into the world of sushi. First, decide on which neighborhood suits your style - will it be fast-paced Shinjuku, or the entrance to suburbia (aka, lots of hungry commuters), Ikebukuro? Either way, you’ll try out four very different ways of eating sushi, from a kaiten-zushi restaurant (conveyor belt), where you nab a tasty morsel as it scoots past, to a department store where, as it happens, locals swear the most tasty sushi is made. Afterwards, you might head to a glitzy rooftop restaurant and enjoy sushi with a view, or you can go somewhere slightly more puritanical and catch your own fish! There’s also the option of popping into a five-seater restaurant that the real sushi fanatics swear by. And we swear, that no matter where you go, the sushi will blow your local home sushi joint out of the water. Pun sort of intended. Your host will also teach you how to spot a good sushi restaurant and fill you in on the need-to-know sushi etiquette. Don’t let us catch you clasping those chopsticks in an uncouth manner! Now, off you go. The sushi won’t eat itself.

Our Picks

  • Join your sushi-loving host and sample your way around four different places serving sushi in a neighborhood that suits your style

  • Experience four very different sushi styles, from cheap and on-the-go to conveyor belt to a restaurant that leaves the fish-catching up to you

  • Learn how to eat sushi like a local - etiquette is important, as well as how to spot good sushi joint from a mile away

  • Get recommendations from your host for other sushi restaurants to try during the rest of your trip

  • Just eating sushi deserves to be its own highlight, right?

Never enough sushi

This was a really enjoyable tour at some hidden sushi joints around Shinjuku. I am sure we would never have found these if we had not taken this tour. Our guide Martina was really nice and friendly and she really listened to the sort of tour that we wanted. The sushi we tried was the best of our lives and the spots she picked were so characterful, we just loved them! I really recommend this tour particularly if this is your first visit to Tokyo and you love sushi.

Sushi heaven!!

We were not sure if this tour was going to be worth it as my husband and I thought we knew our sushi pretty well. Well, it was an eye opener! Of course we expected to have better sushi in Tokyo than back home but oh my god! First of all, Noriko was great and she really understood that we wanted from this tour. And it was more than we expected. Not only because we tried sushi we'd never had and because even the simple nigiri was like the stuff you pay big bucks for back home but also because of the places that Noriko chose for us! The ambience was phenomenal so combined with amazing sushi, it really made this experience very special! Thank you Noriko!
