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.

A good experience with fresh fish. You must be there if you love sushi. Walking along the outer market area and try all those seafood is very exiting. No need to wait in a long queue for those famous sushi shop. Just try whatever available street food you like.

We went to the fish market in March. We left the hotel at 2:30am to get there around 3am. All the spaces were filled up around 3:30am (we were in group 2). The person who came in and explained the fishing side of thing and the auction process was great and very informative. The auction itself was rapid fire. It... More

There are little places where you can sit down and be served. It's worth finding one for super-fresh, affordable sashimi. Travelled as a (mature age Australian foodie) couple to Japan in April/May 2017 - extensively by JR rail, air BnB Tokyo, hotels elsewhere.

Lots of little stalls to buy things you can't take back with you on the plane. Good sushi stalls. Real fish auction area is off limits to tourists unless you get one of the few passes available each day. Very busy place in the early morning just not much to see.

The Fish Market is a must do appointment in Tokyo, the hub supplying the fish to 14 M people and beyond, just to provide an idea of the size of this market. It is huge. The market has two attractions: the Tuna auction and the market itself, which opens at the public at 10 am everyday. To be honest it... More

We first encountered the outer market area which is just shops and some restaurants - we found the info centre and they were very helpful in directing us to the end of the street and the Wholesale market which is what you want to see. Nothing flash from the outside - just a big warehouse with loading docks - and... More

We started with the outer market at about 8:45am. It was bustling with food vendors and souvenir shops and a lot of people. The tastes, sights, smells and sounds were fantastic. My particular favorite was the fresh oysters. We were allowed into the inner market after 10:00am but by then a lot of the wholesalers were beginning to close up.... More

We didn't go to Tsukiji Market to see the fish auction, but did go to the restaurant area within the market to have breakfast and lunch. Famous sushi restaurants like Sushi Dai always have long lines, but there are many other restaurants that offered just as good sushi. There are bunch of non-sushi restaurants as well. Each restaurant is quite... More

Best sashimi, best sushi. Fresh like you can taste the sea. If you love raw seafood, come here. This is an awesome place if you love food.

We visited the Tsukiji tourist center at the middle of the outer market. The officer provided the details of the fish market. The office was friendly and helpful. The fish market is nice, clean, and touristy. We had breakfast at a sushi restaurant near the wholesale market. We waited in line about one hour. The food was ok. The wholesale... More
