Tsukiji market easily accessible by subway. We went there on a Saturday morning and only managed to cover the outer market. It is an interesting place where you can find stalls selling different types of foods and seafood. There is one thing you must do....try the fresh sushimi in any restaurant there...fresh and cheap. You can also find free sampling... More

At Tsukiji fish market food was EXCELLENT, various and inexpensive. It's called fish market but there're also other things like wakyu steak. It was so Yummy.

This is the outer market that I hear is being moved in the next year or so, so go now! Come hungry and sample everything.

Although the primary reason for our morning visit to Tsukiji was to see the fish market, we enjoyed spending the rest of the morning and early afternoon wandering the stalls and stores surrounding the market. Some of the stalls and shops were a bit touristy but there were also some that carried unique items. I fell in love with the... More

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
