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.

Tsukiji market is about 15 min walk from my office in Ginza and I sometimes see tourist trying to go to Tsukiji late in the afternoon. Early in the morning is the time for the professionals who work there / visit there for business so do not bother them. But going to fish market like Tsukiji in the afternoon is... More

Enjoyed the early morning rush at the market with Japanese omelette on a stick. Allow a few hours as this is a fascinating cultural journey. All types of fishs, vegetables, fruits and meats together with sweets, souvineres, Oriental dishes and what not. We loved it.

To be honest, I think regardless what I write here, many people who visit Tokyo will definitely visit Tsukiji Market. The time I visited Tokyo, they just officially announced that the Tsukiji Market will not relocate in November 2016 than it originally said, and very likely be relocated at the end of 2017 or early 2018 (to be confirmed). So,... More

The largest food market in the world. I got to tour behind the scenes with a 5th generation sushi chef. It is a wonderful taste of an older Japan where everything is still done by hand and personal relationship and family traditions govern most of what is done. A must see!

Luckily for us we had to change hotel's in the middle of the night due to a smoking room that was available. Our new hotel was 1 mile away from the market so once we arrived at the hotel at 2AM and dropped our luggage off (we didn't get our room till noon that day), we decided to go to... More

If you want to visit the real fish market warehouses, you will have to come later around 10am, but not after 12noon. Those are the best time to see the warehouse workers packing and preparing the fish and other stuff. You can miss the tuna auction, but don't miss watching them cutting up the massive tunas. Techincally, you're not really... More

If you love sushi, this is the spot for you. I arrived at the market about 10 am and it was hustle and bustle with vendors selling their seafood, fruits and vegetables or kitchen ware. I ate the most wonderful oysters, king crab and tuna. I can't even put in words how fantastic the seafood was. Go! Get a hotel... More

To view the activities at Tsukiji Fish Market come on workdays early in the morning at 4 a.m. to the Kachidoki Gate. Only 120 visitors will be accepted per day on a first come first serve basis in two groups of 60. No other access allowed before 10 a.m. until the interesting activities have been completed and closed. At any... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 with anyone looking for a night out.
