Rows and rows of fresh fish and all kinds of seafood. There was a corner selling dried goods (vegetables and stuff too) and not forgetting the sushi restaurants with long snaking queues! If you are the squirmish type, then you may not like the frequent scene of fishmongers cutting up the fish. Oh! and the tuna.... is ..... HUGE! The... More

Tsukiji market is a must see Tokyo site. We visited with a wonderful guide from Free Tokyo Guides who took us 1st to the vegetable wholesale area, and then to the famous seafood area. Both are very large with some 800 wholesale traders each. After, you can visit tr regular market where there are many small and popular restaurants with... More

Great to see so many varieties of seafood. Obviously had to sample some sushi there and wasn't disappointed - possibly the best I've had - so fresh! The guy behind the counter we sat at was an old guy who said he'd been working there "double my age"! He was a great character and let me round his side to... More

Tsukiji fish market is probably infamous for their tuna auctions, and many tourists pay a visit to witness the various fishmongers doing their trade. One thing to remember is that it is a high-volume fish market, which is a hive of activity. Staff speed down the parallel alleys on electric carts, and visitors should be careful to keep out of...

It is well worth the short trip. Eye opener for those who have never been to a wet market, let alone a seafood market, not just fish, big or small. Be warned of the wet and slippery place and be considerate as sellers and stall holders do not have time for you and none of them understand your language. The... More

Even if you don't like fish, you must see this amazing place. I didn't know there are such creatures living in the sea before I saw them at the Tsukiji Market :) The market is easy to access by the subway. If you can, wear waterproof shoes because the floor is full of puddles and there are buckets of splashing... More

Tsukiji was easy to find and did not disappoint. The food was super fresh and delicious. Unfortunately we didn't get there early enough for the tuna auctions but don't be fooled into not going if you aren't the early bird. We arrived at 9am and it was still buzzing and plenty of street food about. Also great for kitchen supplies... More

Tsukiji is the famous fish market in Tokyo. This is where master sushi chefs buy their fish at auction (which you can no longer see). But if you want to buy fish (fresh, smoked, cooked, packaged, etc., this is the place to go. With endless free samples at every stall, you can almost eat lunch there for free (well, actually,...

Easy access from the subway. Actually a mere 5 minute walk. Plenty of help along the way to guide you along and once you enter this domain you will never look at fish the same way again. It is truly astounding what a wide variety of fish there are in the ocean and the quantity we humans consume. There are... More

One of the best flea markets I've been to. The place is authentic and real. Really fishy smell and the place is busy with business and daily operations. Loads of places to eat sashimi. Some places had really long queues, but we went to one that was shorter. Food was still good. Kinda pricey. Otherwise people are quite friendly and... More
