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.

Outside of the market is Foodie heaven! I also bought my favorite gifts here. They have everything from sushi supplies and ramen bowls to pretty bags and fabrics. There is so much fresh seafood and little stalls with amazing food. Go early before the crowds. Give yourself plenty of time to explore all the little alleyways.

We weren't able to see the auction, which is a ticketed event, but our group got there by 7:30 just as some of the stores were setting up. The stalls offer fresh raw oysters and other sorts of seafood. There are grilled items as well (crabs, scallops, oysters, etc.) and different fresh fruits and desserts. Plenty of small kitchen items... More

It is the biggest fish market in the world and with the wilder fish and seafood variety as well. VALUABLE TIPS: you can either go insanely early, at about 2am (yes, 2 am) to TRY to check the tuna auction (it is not guaranteed you will be allowed to get in or see anything, but the auction starts at this...

Missed the morning auction, but there was still plenty to experience. Being a sashimi lover, it was heaven. Love their passion for food, even the simplest of food, they prepare everything with heart. One thing though, most shops close at 3, so be sure to go there before 3.

We made our way to the market to see the Tuna Auction by 2AM as it was busy season. While the first 120 visitors are split into 2 groups that visit the Auction at 5:15AM and 5:50AM, the last group to make it entered at 2:35AM. It is well worth it to make it early to see it. A couple... More

The Tsukiji Fish Market is a beehive of activity even at about 10 am, which is when we arrived there, We actually wanted to get to the fish auction, but we had been advised that we would have to wait from 2:30 am for admission at 5:30 am. This was deterrent enough for us. We are vegetarians, and have had... More
