This would be one of the highlights of our stay in Tokyo. We got there early and splurged on a sushi train before winding our way through Tsukiji market. There is some amazing food on offer and even if nothing appeals to you, the quality...More

It is located at Tokyo center, and probably the last chance to visit this old market. It will be moved to another place in this year. It shows the normal life of Tokyo people. Small market but huge products of different kinds of seafood. You...More

The tuna auction is very early. You have to arrive at about 4 am the latest and wait about 2 hrs to come in as a visitor. The whole event takes only 7 mins. Not really worth the effort. The next best area is the...More

Tsukiji Fish Market is a must visit tourist attraction while you are in Tokyo. Fresh seafood and a lots of local delicacies available. Very crowded especially in the early morning.

The opening hours for tourists have recently been moved until after 11.00 am. This means that you arrive when the traders are in the middle of clearing up. We literally saw two fish but lots of wooden pallets and closed polystyrene crates. It is probably...More

This is the original fish market that will be moving the end of 2018 so we were told. We got there just after 10 am and they were cleaning up after their morning wholesale 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

I think the whole area will be closed down after October. The outer market might stay open a bit longer to maximize sales. But the whole area is to be developed, as I understand it. I'd expect it to be closed but check in... More

The best thing to do is get there around 10 am I don't think the actual auction is open to the public. It's just as much fun at 10am.
