  • Unexpectedly came on Saturday evening, but many people, I was surprised. I think I spot a bowl of rice with seafood and sushi shops, tourists can enjoy.

  • In little separate from toyosu, apart maybe Tsukiji. But I think it's one of the few Tokyo attractions have fun saying eat while walking in. Listed in the guidebooks, so the store are expensive. But the shop seems to know it well and I want to eat that many here, and I wish.

  • I had opted to sleep in, skip the auction, and instead, wandered around Tsukiji at 7-8 am. Frankly put, I do not remember the exact stall which I ate the best sashimi-don of my life, but Tsukiji itself offers an incredible variety of stalls and vendors for fresh seafood of all types. Well worth spending the time and money to try some amazing sushi.
  • Ate fatty tuna at seafood stalls not restaurant. Choose your own portion and pay price as displayed. The fish shop staff will cut them into sashimi slices. They'll offer you toothpick, soya sauce & wasabi to eat on the street. Much cheaper than restaurant if you dun mind standing & eating on the street. We paid 2000yen for otoro ; 9 thick slices.
  • A must. If you want to see tuna auction, verify time the day before. It changes. Suggestion: stand off to side in mkt and get a sense of transporter traffic - very busy and easy to be in their way. Any of the "diners" in the mkt are great. This is a market spectacle like no other
  • Cool place but very busy. Workers are everywhere running around on their transporters and we quickly felt in their way. The amount of tourists clearly aggravates some of them, which made the experience somewhat awkward. There are lots of tourist trap sushi shops that are pretty annoying. Overall it was fun but I wouldn't go twice (as a visitor at least).
  • You're coming to Tokyo for sushi, so why not go to the place where sushi was basically invented, the world famous Tsukiji Market. Sample local fair of all stripes, eat delicious sushi for fair prices, get a beer from a vending machine (no ID required), and swim through more people than you've ever been around in your whole life. Worth the trip!
