We had an excellent walking tour round the market and a fabulous cooking experience perhaps the Sake tasting could have been a little more informative, so if you want the focus on looking at food, buying ingredients and cooking them this is for you, overall a great trip

Price was not as advertised. After booking and being initially charged. The company refused to give us the address we required, unless we paid an additional 3500 yen each. Essentially extorted for more. Expensive, cooking class had minimal English, but nice lady. Would avoid.

Thank you for joining the WAK JAPAN's tour at the last year-end and also your review. We're sorry for the inconvenience this time regarding the additional year-end fee, however we remember you agreed with our request and finally charged the additional fee with your consent. We hope you enjoyed our walk tour with sushi cooking as well as trekking the day before the tour.

We had such a great time!! It was fast paced but still casual. The tour was informative and energetic with the hustle and bustle of the market. The cooking class was so much fun and the hands on experience was just what we wanted. And to top it all off, the food was DELICIOUS!
