This is one of the best food markets I have ever visited. We went on a Saturday morning and understandably it was very busy but the purchasing at the stalls goes quickly. Loads of seafood dishes to try and sweets and beverage stalls available as...More

I was told that the market will move out of the current location in August 2018. I will always eat in one of the restaurants - the price is reasonable and the food is fresh. It's touristy and it's a fun place to be. We...More

What an amazing morning, the culinary delights that await you here are spectacular, the freshest sashimi, oysters, crab, scallops, hot sake, selection of vegetables, knives, to name but a few. Come hungry and sample your way around. Incredible experience, loved it, will definitely go back.

Kon'nichiwa! If you are considering this iconic and historic attraction, do not put it off any longer, as it is destined to be relocated later in 2018. The famed Tsukiji Market is located in central Tokyo – adjacent to the Ginza shopping district – and...More

We took the subway right next to the entrance of the market. It was snowing out and very cold. Walked around in the slush and saw rows of booths with fish, produce, cooking knives, dinnerware and souvenirs for sale. Lots of small sushi restaurants with...More

This has to be one of the true "must see's" in Tokyo. Shame that it will be closing to make way for the Olympics. It's an amazing ballet of buyers, sellers and gawkers (like us). I didn't know so many kinds of seafood existed. The...More

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 went there on a tour starting around 9:30, and there were still some whole tuna dotted about but frozen ones. If you want to see the premium fresh fish you need to join the super early queue. Sushi places nearby are open... More
