We are not wake up in the middle of the night people, so did not witness the very-early-in-the-morning, fish auction. Instead, we visited around noon for lunch. The street scene and street food were interesting and differeent - we sampled oysters - but the various...More

When you whisking through the crowds and tasting some of the Japanese street food, you will realise, yes it’s wonderful experience. And it’s far cheaper than you have it from your hotel restaurant. Wagyu skewers, oysters, Sea urchins, Grilled Scallops, fresh fruits and sashimi name...More

The food, the cleanness, and the overall cultural experience cannot be matched to the amazing Tsukiji fish market.

Is a Seafood market area in Tokyo, this area is clean, and not so big, maybe around 500 meters long, actually only one street. You can choose seafood and ask to cook, according to your taste. Some seafood price is negotiable. There is also a...More

During my Japan tour I stayed 5 days in Tokyo. One day, early in the morning, some friends and I went to visit Tsukiji Fish Market but with great disappointment we were not allowed to enter. There were guards everywhere. They have forbidden to visit...More

I walked around inside the market with a local on an early morning , she explained the daily routines and different fishes. Interesting experience, the visit concluded with great sushi lunch. Recommended.

We did the outer markets and enjoyed every moment. So much food and samples to try. Easy to find from train station. We ate at our tour guides recommended sushi bar (from a day tour done previously) and it was fabulous, Iwasa sushi, remember it!

Tsukiji market is much more than just a seafood area. Of course, there's that, but there are many restaurants and food stalls with different types of Japanese food. If you are a tourist, it's very interesting foods you have never seen or eaten before. We...More

Went there for dinner with friends. Wide range of selection and bit cheaper than other places. Really enjoyed varieties of seafood there. If you are seafood lover, visit this place at least once.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular

I think the whole area will be closed down after October. The outer market might stay open a bit longer to maximize sales. But the whole area is to be developed, as I understand it. I'd expect it to be closed but check in... More

The best thing to do is get there around 10 am I don't think the actual auction is open to the public. It's just as much fun at 10am.
