Main market closed for huge national holiday (Setsubon) but most of the stalls open. Come hungry - snacks, samples, restaurants all tempting. Variety of seafood for sale astonishing to see, ditto edibility. I ate sea slugs once, never again, but other invertebrates>yum! Enough English spoken to make it easy.

This is the outer part of the market mostly tailored for tourists who are not interested in attending any tuna auction or seeing the transportation of sea foods across the floor. To taste something fresh, this is also the right place to dwell in. * To get here, take Tokyo Metro Subway Hibiya Line to Tsukiji staiton and walk for... More

Obviously a tourist trap and you'll see many of them, but still got to come here regardless for the expropriation. Lots of fresh food, a couple of famous ramen and rice stalls and drop into Masamoto knife shop for a real good kitchen knife plus engraving of your name.

Went here again last month on our trip to Tokyo. This place has so many different things to eat. Go for breakfast and shop until lunch. There are so many places to eat sushi, ramen, scallops and other good things. Tons of things to buy as gifts for your friends back home. You must try the Otoro before you leave.

There wasnt anything spectacular about this fish market. It was crowded, wet and smelly. All that is written about the fish market is over sensationalized. There are many restaurants though. Maybe that's the draw. But we found the restaurants were way over priced. Maybe it's all the hype....a tourist trap. So we sat down and had sashimi rice; and surprisingly... More

Most tourists will just wander round looking at the very strange offerings to photograph, but for locals this is truly a working market. Lots of strange fish to view and small restaurants nearby selling truly fresh produce, worth a visit just for the photos

Lots to see and smell. Great place for locals to buy seafood. As a tourist worth a good look around but unless you are self catering I doubt you will buy much ;-)

I visited Tsukiji as there is a massive hype around the place as a must do in Japan/Tokyo and it features in so many recommended places to visit and our guide book. It is literally just a fish market surrounded by a few blocks of food stalls. The smell is a mix of fish and sewage at times which will... More
