We were very lucky as we stayed only one block away from the market. We did not go to the auction as the idea of getting up in the middle of the night to sit/stand in a freezer, which is what it is no matter how others want to describe it, for hours to watch a bunch of guys bid... More

This is a wonderful street market where you can find exotic food to buy or eat right at the street. We bought excellent kobe beef and tuna sashimi, nicely packed in styropor boxes with dry ice. We also bought some beautiful kitchen knives - remember that Japan has a samurai tradition so they make really good knives.

I enjoy food in this place every time when I visit Tokyo. Not only seafood, Ramen is also so great there. Even in hot summer time in Japan, it's something must try for everyone.

We arrived at 3:45am and were too late for the fresh tuna auction but were able to see the frozen tuna auction at 5:45 am and then had sushi for breakfast. It's worth doing once in your life.

Wake up early but still need to wait for quite some time to get the freshest sashimi/sushi. I did not queue for the famous Sushi Dai because the queue is crazy hence I went to the one just beside it and it is surprisingly good enough! The sashimi has noooooo fishy smell at all. Even if you do not eat... More

Great place to visit when in Tokyo. You can taste some of the products being sold and try a few fish dishes. There are also many places where you can eat sushi.

Tsukiji Jogai is a great market where you can enjoy the fresh fish cooked on the spot or, if you have self catering accommodation take it home and cook it the way you like. An easy walk 1/2 hour walk from Ginza Corner and you get to see the newly renovated Kabuki Theatre on the way. An added advantage is... More

Simply put - don't miss this authentic market if you're visiting Tokyo. We didn't aim for the early morning tuna auction since we had young kids with us. But landed up at the market around 8.30am and there was plenty of action and excitement. Our young kids (& us grown ups!) were thrilled with all the displays of food, seafood,... More

I have been staying in this area for the last three weeks and every day at some time I go through the market and always see something I haven't noticed before.There are so many places to eat offering fish just about any way you want. There are a lot of little stores selling other products as well, shell fish, dried... More
