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.

World’s largest fish market!

It is a place where the most expensive fish in the world was sold. If you are willing to wake up early to take an expensive taxi ride over, go for the tuna auction. However... read more

You are pretty much going here to have the freshest sushi available. The famous fish market is huge and buzzing with local workers. Be prepared to deal with heavy traffic and the wonderful smell of the sea 😉.

Wanted to go as a avid photographer. You'll definitely get all the sights and smell of an Asian market - only cleaner. Interesting place for breakfast/lunch or to experiment (whale anyone?). Don't bother queuing up for the six restaurants in the inner market area. It's consistently Long and not so much better (I had the premium set at Yamazke). I... More

It is a place where the most expensive fish in the world was sold. If you are willing to wake up early to take an expensive taxi ride over, go for the tuna auction. However, the total number of visitors a day is restricted. A must-go for first time visitors to Tokyo Japan. This popular wholesale market is where you will experience... More

A working fish market, it's worthwhile to read up on its history and evolution before visiting to help with the context of how it operates during your visit, especially if you're skipping the very early morning fish auction. If you're keen on lining up for any of the most popular sushi bars, I'd recommend queuing up well before 10/10.30am as... More

After checking out of our hotel and with a few hours to spare before heading out to the airport, we decided to pay Tsukiji one last visit and make a last minute grab for some more yummy seafood. Man! only on the Metro did we realized we picked a Saturday to visit! As expected, the place was packed...no! it was... More

We had read that you need to be up early to see the tuna auction. In the end we ummed and arred over whether it was worth getting up at 2am but decided it was a once in a lifetime thing. We arrived at Tsukiji just before 3am and there were only half a dozen spots left. 10 minutes later... More

Very busy with a mixture of everyday life and tourists. Wander, enjoy and then pick a place to eat. It's all part of the experience!

Tsukiji is something you have to experience to understand the scale as well as the culture of the worlds largest fish market. Very hard to explain the amount and variety of seafood. Been here couple of times because of jet lag since it opens very very early. One heck of an experience is all I can say.

Amazing and fun market. So much to see! Definitely better if you hire a guide to explain how it all works. Lots of ready to eat options available as well.
