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.

The open market is a great option to try some great sushi and other foods, besides giving you a inside feeling of local cultural. If you want to see the tuna auction, be ready to be there around 2:00am and don't forget to check the...More

The actual fish auction takes place around 5 AM and only 120 people are allowed in (free) to witness sales. It therefore requires that visitors arrive a couple of hours before, but the public transportation doesn't start until later so a taxi is required. If...More

It's a must. Simply a must. Unless you're vegan then don't bother cause all you will do is complain.

Visited here a couple of times. It is an ideal factory with materials coming in on one side, processed and cut fish coming out the other side. It is very busy with an unimaginable variety of fish. The tuna auction is pretty cool and efficient.

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

Ok good fishand very japanese style. But it is not such a good thing as many reviews say. I was expecting more excitement when visiting this market.

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

We didn't use a tour guide for the visit to the market. Just went early (by 5:00 am the latest) at the meeting point. It's well signed and noted what we can do and see and followed the group organized and formed on the spot... More
