I conduct 2-types of tours.

(TYPE A) Adachi Tour

The Adachi fish market tour starts at the predawn hour of 4am.

The Adachi market is one of the 64 Central Wholesale Markets at the 40 cities in Japan.  The Tsukiji market that closed last year in October was also the same kind of Central Wholesale Market.  The Adachi market opened in 1945, trading in vegetables, fruits and fish.  But in 1979, the vegetables and fruits section was shifted to a new market, so the Adachi market today is specialized in fish.  It is located at the northeastern downtown area in Tokyo.
