UPDATED: Goodbye, Tsukiji! Countdown Until Big Relocation

update: Tsukiji Market Relocation - Postponed!

The relocation of Tsukiji Fish Market to the nearby area of Toyosu was originally scheduled for the beginning of November, but recent changes have led to a postponement of the big move. For now, the Tsukiji Fish Market will remain at its current location until the beginning of next year. 

 

-October 5, 2016


Here at TOKI, we're all counting down until Tsukiji Fish Market's big relocation to Toyosu at the beginning of November.

Ever since we began offering the Tsukiji Market tours, they have been extremely popular with guests of all ages. Led by a master sushi chef, the market tour provides an overview of the facility, takes guests through areas typically reserved for professional chefs, and upon request we can arrange for other exclusive opportunities. Many of our guests partake in a hands-on sushi making experience with the chef directly after the Tsukiji Market tour, learning the skill and knowledge it requires to select and prepare the best cuisine possible.

Although the market will still be in Tokyo and is merely moving to a spot east of its current location, it will no longer be the historical Tsukiji that we have all become familiar with. Take advantage of your last chance to experience Tsukiji, and visit our tour page for more information!

Art of Ikebana: Exclusive Experience with Headmaster of Sogetsu School

About Ikebana and Sogetsu:

Japanese traditional flower arrangement is called "Ikebana". We have prepared a special experience that will be led by the fourth generation head of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, Master Teshigawara Akane, at the school headquarters.

Sogetsu, which is characterized as being the most unrestrictive out of the three major Japanese flower arrangement schools (Ikenobo, Sogetsu, Ohara), is a style that is not restricted by form and makes use of the artist's personality. We promise that it will be a fulfilling time for both beginners and the experienced alike, a moment in which one can satisfy his or her senses and connect with Sogetsu.
 

About the experience:

Visit the headquarters of the Sogetsu School of Ikebana, listen to the words of the headmaster, observe her working in person, and be taught by her directly. This rare experience is not offered to the general public. Allow TOKI to provide you with a truly blissful Japanese cultural experience.

 

Details:

・Lecture by Fourth Generation Master Teshigawara Akane

・Observe "Ikebana" by the Master

・Experience Ikebana using materials from early summer

・Question-and-answer session
