There was so much to see, smell and take in at the outer market. This was our first stop in Tokyo once we dropped our luggage. We walked around the different stalls, checking out the dried and fresh seafood. Looks like locals come here to buy their fresh produce. We had lunch at one of the numerous sushi places. We... More

Especially if you can make it for the tuna auction which starts around 5am. But you should get there latest by 4am as they only let in like 100 people on 1st come 1st serve basis...

I had an amazing time. The outer market's where the energy and action are once the sun's up. If you're a super early bird or don't mind waking up at 3am or so, try the tuna auction. But I value my sleep too much. So the outer market it was. The inner market's still worth a walk through, just to... More

People, many people, buying, selling and looking. the Japanese eat every part of the fish so there were products here I had never seen before. Any imaginable form of fish was available and a lot of dried fishes, smoked, etc. If you want to see the market at full swing go just after the auction has finished. Regular types of... More

This market has been in existence for about 70 years and it is said to be the largest wholesale fish market in the world. Set to close in 2016 and move to a larger location, a visit to this historic market was a must for me. I was not able to get there early enough for the tuna auction, which... More

So I have read the review that you have to go line up as early as 4 am to get in to one of the auction session. Well we were late. We got there around 5:30 am and it was all over. At the information centre they suggested that we come for the line up at 3:30am! the session doesn't... More

hundreds of outdoor shops gather here. It is a good place to shop for fresh sea food and have lunch. They close in the early afternoon.

This the more touristy area of the wholesale Tsukij market, and as with all wholesale markets the action takes place in the morning so plan to go early.... Take care - the market traffic is very busy and can be a little dangerous. In the small streets bordering the outside you can buy a wide variety of items and find... More

I didn't get what the hype was all about. I got there a bit late in the morning and people were lining up to eat, get this...RAMEN. So I skipped that and headed down the small alleys. I found the prices higher than expected. I mean we get really fresh seafood/sashimi too but the prices here were just ridiculously high.... More

We came to the Tsukiji Market in the morning to get a sushi breakfast from one of the two well-known sushi places on site. We got lost and wandered the market, which was interesting in and of itself. Just about everything seafood that you can imagine is for sale here. We eventually found the sushi restaurants, which were a bit... More
