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.

Watching the sale of the tuna was interesting however I wouldn't count it as a 'must do' activity. I would have learnt as much by watching the process on youtube. Even though we were there early - we still ended up in the second group...More

If you're looking for the largest collection of sealed polystyrene boxes in Tokyo, this is for you. If you wish to meet snappy security men yelling 'Buyers only! No tourist until 10.00am, Go, Go.' look no further. Best of all, if you'd like to see...More

So worth the 3am wake-up call! You have to get to the location by 3:45 to secure your spot for the auction. We arrived and there were only 3 spots left. The auction only lasts 30 minutes and they split you into 2 groups, so...More

If you like to eat fish for breakfast, do not miss out on an early morning stroll around the area of the Tsukiki Fish Market area. Walk through the various side streets to eat grilled octopus or friend squid, or various dishes with crab. It...More

We were lucky enough to access the 'centre' of the markets. The size of the Tuna is astounding! Keep an eye out for the trolley things wizzing about everywhere - we saw several near-misses. Also wandered through the markets outside Tsukiji and sampled some delicious...More

This has been one of the highlights of our trip to Tokyo. We were able to have a bit of an adventure, wandering around all the stalls & through this enormous wonderland of seafood. A must visit for any sushi or fish lover

A short walk from Central Ginza in Tokyo is the Tsukiji Market which is the beating heart of seafood supply in Tokyo. It requires real commitment to arise before dawn to take in the auction of the fish in the early hours of the morning,...More

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
