Good market for strange fish

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... read more

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

Tsukiji market not far from the city's center is one of the most touristic attraction of Tokyo.Wake up early in the morning to live the tuna auctions and eat there the freshiest sushi in the wolrd.

We missed the early morning auction (must be very interesting) but arriving in the morning we still got a good impression of the workings of the market; a huge, bustling, hectic workplace. And a delight for lovers of (exotic) seafood and all kinds of fish. This might be the last chance for a visit because the market will be moving... More

I am glad I visited this but purely because of all the endless advice from people to go. To be honest it was not fun, it was busy and smelly and several times almost got run over. Seeing the fish was interesting but not worth it at all. The highlight was the restaurant we visited but without detracting from the... More

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.
