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.

We got there a little after 10 in the morning and the place was already hopping with tourists. You can find fried food, grilled seafood, sushi restaurants, oysters, etc. Whatever you do, don't buy the raw oyster. The one I got was not chilled properly and it was awful! Raw oysters should be served chilled, like beer. Nothing more off... More

The inner market is not very tourist friendly, with lots of puddles and zooming vehicles everywhere. This is understandable given it's for commercial use by the locals. Eye-opening as there are many interesting sea creatures and fish to admire. The outer market is very crowded, but offers rows and rows of eateries and shops selling household necessities and dried foods.... More

If you're a sushi-lover or a seafood lover for that matter, Tsukiji is the place to visit. You can watch the tuna auction early morning if you want to see those humongous yellow-fin tuna being auction at incredible price. But, you really have to be early because the line can be long and the admission is limited. But, if you... More

The fish market itself is extraordinary. It's not a tourist market by any means. It's a wholesale market that the public is allowed into only after a certain time of day (I think it's 10am), which makes it and ideal walk after you've dined at one Tsukiji's amazing sushi restaurants. Here you'll see all manner of fresh fresh seafood. If... More

It is a tourist spot = don't expect here is a place for budget food. It is the many small food stalls, which serves freshly cooked food, make this market attractive. You can find all Japanese cuisine here, fm sushi, ramen, deep fried to shabu shabu..... There are some famous "long queue" restaurant, eg. 壽司大,大和sushi, 八千代,they are all located at... More

Huge place. Need time to orient yourself as there are many rows of shops. Everything seems new - very few repetitive stuffs. Any food looks nice. Too bad didnt spend more time here.

Ther's so much activity here in the morning. When we were allowed in at 10 am, we had to be careful where we walked so as not to get in the way of the stall holders, trolleys and trucks. Seemed very chaotic but interestingly nobody got into anybody's way! Even though the main business activity had been completed, there was... More

Great place to visit. The place is packed. To see the tuna auction you need to get there at 5AM!! But if you go at a normal time the outer market has a great variety of fish and other items.
