  • Triple holiday began at 11 o'clock on the day of the week. Had a lot of tourists during the holidays, but maybe some closed stores and is lively on weekdays with felt. Like many stores, but I didn't eat sushi and sashimi, raw fish is not accompanied by the affordable price. It is a pity I change transfer in the atmosphere now.

  • Buy civilian market, Tsukiji fish market, gathered from around the country such as fresh fish, vegetables, food ingredients to come, always crowded. Lots of tourists come to eat sushi, ramen, especially in recent years, many foreigners.

  • If you are jet-lagged and want to have a unique experience in Tokyo visiting the largest fish market in the world, analogous to the flower market in Holland, visit Tsukiji. You'll have to be there ver...  read more »
  • This was more of a historic visit since they're moving the location soon. I'll be honest. It's pretty dangerous walking around here. My girlfriend and I were almost hit several times by the moving cars or pallet jack vehicles. The fish were cool to see and then people doing theirs jobs. The sushi was fantastic at one of the various restaurants in the area but the lines were HUGE! So be prepared for a decent wait.
  • The famous fish market, know around the world! You need to come very early to see the inside via a tour guide. Otherwise you can't get in until regular persons can buy fish. Very famous and very cool to visit!
  • I was actually pretty disappointed when I visited this place. I did not do the tuna auction and just visited the regular vendors which are open during most of the day. It was packed and offered very little that I was interested in seeing. Maybe the tuna auction is worth visiting but if you miss that don't bother coming here. There are better places to shop and buy things.
  • I skipped the market on my first trip to Tokyo but made sure not to do it on the second. I was under the impression that the tuna auctions were the only thing worth seeing here and coming at 4AM was not appealing. Luckily after some reading I realized I could show up around 9AM and still see some amazing stuff. Even at 9AM it's a huge bustling fish market with tons of vendors and plenty of live, dead, and in between fish to look at. I saw some things that I'm still not sure what they were. It is a market so beware of the little carts that go flying everywhere. Directly outside the actual market are some small sushi shops. Sadly we didn't get to check them out as they all had lines 50 deep at least. Outside the market complex towards the subway station are a ton of open air stalls with all kinds of seafood from the market. You can easily walk up and get whatever you want for a couple of dollars.
  • Can't help but marvel at it! I didn't get to take part in an auction unfortunately, but I had a nice stroll through the inside warehouse which was amazing. The variety of seafood available, the freshness of it, the amount of people there doing business.... it was all amazing to witness! Had a sushi rice bowl in the outer market for breakfast, so many good stalls to choose from. Many of the popular ones have a nice line waiting to get in. Must visit while in tokyo.
