Sushi Master Profiles

Hirobumi Morita
Morita-san has enjoyed a career pursuing Japanese cuisine in the center of cuisine culture of Tsukiji. He has also spend three years in Milan, gaining experience with Mediterranean seafood. Since 2004, Morita-san began working in Tsukuji to further deepen his knowledge and experience with fresh seafood and its cuisine. “You have to be quick here in Tsukiji. Since freshness is so important, everyone in Tsukiji gets up in the early hours before dawn and shops will start to close soon after lunch. And of course, this need for speed is one of the reasons behind the origins of sushi. We hope to share our passion for sushi and Japanese cuisine with you!”
Nobuyuki Noji
Noji-san began his career at 23 as a chef of the century-old Ryotei, a famous Japanese dining establishment. After ten years, he moved to Tsukiji to rediscover the roots of Japanese cuisine. Presently, he is the owner of his own highly regarded restaurant. “Tsukiji is a town of change. Adapting to both season and age, it is constantly striving to provide the perfect ingredients for cuisine. For chefs like me, it really is a treasure trove. Here I can find ingredients unavailable anywhere else. I look forward to sharing my experience of Tsukiji with you!”
In addition to Morita-san and Noji-san, there are several other sushi masters waiting to meet you and teach you the intricacies of the world of sushi.


The Tuna Auction & Tsukiji InsiderTour

This is the only tour that leads you to the inner market before 9am. Only the “insider guides” with real work experience with fish vendors in the Tsukiji Fish Market can lead you on a truly insider tour!

While the auction begins at 5 a.m., visitors actually must wait for several hours before. Our Tuna auction & Tsukiji Guided Tour is the only English guided tour which can offer the insider information like the best place and time for watching and the exact translation of auction information such as the price and the origin of tuna for sale, and how buyers can see the good tuna. After the auction, we can lead you into the market, before the time that travelers are allowed to enter.
Here, thanks to our guiding during and after the auction, you can fully enjoy a wonderful experience that is totally unavailable any other way.
