Great place to visit if you love to eat fresh fish or sushi. Choose from a variety of welcoming shops and restaurants. Fish is also sold in this market but be sure to arrive early as the best fish tends to sell out early in the morning.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

In case you’re thinking Tsukiji market is no more, the outer market (which is really the best part for visitors) still going strong. All of the tiny restaurants, knife shops, little alleys and stores selling all manner of ingredients are still very much in operation....More

We had a good visit at the market. Most stalls were closed but that didn’t dampen our spirits and the rest of the tourists visiting the place. We had sushi lunch and tasted Mocchi and ice cream from the market.

Been here several times but the first time since the move of the auction or fish market. I personally think it has lost a bit of it’s charm and feeling with the hasty vehicles and noise. The market is still there and good but it...More

Went there 'early' 8.30am. Managed to cover the stalls recommended by various youtubers. The tuna don, the egg, bbq seafood and Inari. The crowd started to come in closer to 10am.

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

A little help with my itinerary during Golden Week please? (5 Replies)
I'm going to be in Tokyo at the tail end of Golden week (from 4th May) for 3.5 days before I'm off to Kyoto/Osaka. I'll then be back in Tokyo for 1.5 days. I need a little help with my itinerary as I'm not sure how long some places take to look around and what is exactly close to what! I'm going to be based in Shinjuku. I was thinking: Asakusa / Odaiba - 1 day Shibuya / Meiji Shrine / Harajuku / Omotesando - 1 day Imperial Palace / Ginza / Akihabara - 1 day Skytree / Edo-Tokyo...More

It's hard to say because we don't know your travel style. Personally the Imperial Palace is not interesting to me. The Edo-Tokyo Museum is interesting, but I have taken some visitors there who aren't into it. If you like museums, you should do it. DEFINITELY do Shinjuku, if not for the shopping or people watching, for a night-time stroll and maybe a drink (do you drink?). Ikebukuro is good for people-watching and shopping if that is your thing. How about a side trip to Kamakura and Yokohama?...More

Looking for sakura jam, paste and essence/syrup. Saw salted cherry blossoms at stores but they don't have the above mentioned. Anyone knows where I should look? Went to Takeshiyama, okachimachi, Tsukiji market, Asakusa. Don't see them. Thanks.

If you are thinking of Nagano, you would probably do that after Toyama. From Toyama you could either go by scenic train to Kyoto via Takayama or shinkansen via Tokyo (I'd pick the first option - it's nicer than the trip Toyama-Kanazawa-Kyoto) The cup noodle museum is ok, and Yokohama has a better car scene than Tokyo (based on a casual observation of the cars being driven on the street). Yokohama is also Nissan headquarters. For another car thing - you could go to the Toyota factory near...More
