“tsukiji market”(403 reviews)
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.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

Took an early morning walk through this fish market and enjoyed it very much. Although we did not purchase anything or eat here on this day I would definitely come back to eat as there were many good looking sushi places available and you probably...More

Similar to the last reviewer I found myself scratching my head over this one. 2am alarm, $60 uber, then a 3 hour wait in a tiny room sitting on a hard wooden floor with 240 other people. Not allowed to leave the room! So packed...More

I went to the market at 1:30am so that I could attend the fish auction. It’s free to attend but it’s very limited (it’s not really a tour- you stand in the corner for 20 minutes) and only a few people can attend. Here’s how...More

Great place to visit, both the outer market with its food stalls and cooking utensil stores, and the inner market with further food stalls. There are places here you can buy cooking knives which you can have your name engraved in Kanji script - nice...More

Had a fabulous experience wandering the main and little laneways of the market. Lots of delicious foods like grilled seafood skewers, mochi, tamago, fresh fruits, preserved goods and of course freshest seafoods! A great welcome to Tokyo.

I love the foods there very much. Lots of seafood there and many Japan fruits. Price is a bit higher than other places but it's OK to pay to see the market vibe and local foods

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

Hamrikyu Gardens is 15 minutes walk from Tsukiji market. It opens at 9am and is a lovely spot of culture and tranquility in the city. Visit the gardens and traditional tea houses.
