Fish market. For years they were writing about interesting market and early work there. It is not good for groups and sometimes it is not allowed to enter. Three to five people can still walk around. Best way for strangers is to visit the place on your own. In reality it can be good or bad experience for individuals. You... More

I visited the Tokyo fish market for the first time a couple of years ago on a business trip and managed to make it up early to see the tuna auction. It is a sight to see and I highly encourage anyone to get up and make the trip. It is so worth it. This time did not make it... More

Surrounding the fishmarket this market is a lively and a place well spent waiting for the opening of the market or after visiting.

I really wish I liked seafood. Alas I can't eat it but my wife loves it. We visited on a day it felt like 110 degrees outside so not many visitors. Also many of the shops close early. Tsukiji is definitely a place you want to visit early. If you like fresh seafood this is the place for you!

A visit to the fish market must include a visit to both the inner and outer markets. The inner market is where wholesalers and people with connections can go pick up some fresh fish, It's interesting to see them actually cut and package the fish into styrofoam containers, The place can get a little messy since it is a working...

One in a world kind of experience. Very impressive. But really we were walking through a warehouse with lift trucks and stressed drivers, then through loading docks until we reached the center of the market. A must see in Tokyo. Nice snacks and restaurant around.

Tuna Auction & Tsukiji Guided Tour … you must do this tour before the wholesale Fish Market moves to its new site in Toyosu this November. The current market was built in 1935 and once it moves to the new site, both the original facilities and its unique atmosphere will be gone forever. This tour is not cheap but it... More

This place has the best array of fresh seafood ever! If you can't understand Japanese, just skip the tuna auction and head to fill your belly. :3 Go before 10am!
