"Eat like a local during this market-to-table cooking class in Tokyo, beginning with a 1-hour tour of the Tsukiji Outer Market to pick up the freshest ingredients of the day."
While the Tsukiji Inner Market, the wholesale market, has moved to Toyosu, the Tsukiji Outer Market is still a bustling hub where professional chefs and home cooks alike shop for ingredients and kitchenware. Among the 460 shops and restaurants in the Outer Market, one can find essential Japanese ingredients, like katsuobushi (fish flakes) and kelp, and tools such as kitchen knives. There is even a wholesale area where visitors can purchase fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables.

After an hour of browsing the market and selecting ingredients for the class, you will return to the cooking studio. All lessons are conducted in English or interpreted, so foreign guests can enjoy a lecture that is catered to them and teaches the foundation of Japanese cuisine. The menu includes 1 soup and 2 dishes which can be selected from a list that includes sushi, okonomiyaki, Japanese curry, and more. After the lesson, gather around the table and enjoy the meal together, or dine on the terrace for some fresh air.

This market-to-table class allows visitors to explore the unique market where great dishes get their start and learn classic Japanese recipes that can be replicated at home.
