The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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 with anyone looking for a night out.

Full of Japanese character

A great place to visit and get a sea food meal.

You can see fish being sold or simply look for a meal.

Can be very busy at times.

The smell got to me
Mar 2020
I was rather pushed into visiting this market. I had already said I feel nauseous around the very thought of visiting the site and when I got there, it kicked in. If you don’t have a problem with the smell, I’m sure you will have a fun time though.

Authentic local experience
Mar 2020
It took us some time to find this market. Not many people spoke English. But once we were there it was very interesting. The one thing I would say though, if you hold your nose in the supermarket fish counter, then this place isn’t for you. The place stinks!

A must see!
Nov 2019
Tokyos well known fish market - Tsukiji - is well worth a visit! It is probably one of my top 10 experiences during my travels. The market is so authentic, so real, so fresh and delicate and the mixing of all fresh smells and the locals selling their fresh seaproducts is simply just so amazing to experience. Make sure to get here early in the morning and try fresh oysters and fresh sushi straight from the mornings catch. I can highly recommend a visit to the Tsukiji Fish market.

lively and interesting Local Market

Tsukiji Saito’s Fish Market is one of the must-visit places when tourists visit Tokyo, especially for seafood lovers.

The market is lively and crowded from early morning since everyone tries to get the freshest sushi & sashimi or ingredients. One of my Japanese friends told me some chefs from famous restaurants would also purchase their ingredients from Tsukiji Saito’s Fish Market.

There are lots of interesting and trendy street food, traditional Japanese, fusion style of western food...etc. The food is not guaranteed to be good and make sure to check the reviews before you give it a try. The stands with lines, for us were not the best one.

Our favorite was the food truck of grilled tuna steak by the entrance. The boss was cool & awesome and he grilled the tuna steak right with a flame spray tool after our order, which is like seeing a performance.

fascinating little alleys and lanes
Oct 2019
Due to jet lag I had woken up early, so decided to head to Tsukiji market which wasn’t initially on my list but so glad I headed over.

The small lanes were fascinating and the small alleys in between with the sushi bars I don’t think I could have decided where to go if I where stopping to have sushi there!

Ended up having a Wagu beef kebab there as well which was delicious before leaving.

A great way to spend a few hours and a stones throw from the main fish market as well.

Tourist trap? Who care? It is fun ...
Jan 2020
So what if some people call this former fish auction house a tourist trap?
Big Ben, the Eiffel Tower and the Pyramids are tourist traps too but are you going to skip them if nearby? Heck NO.
As a tourist you want to see what is cool about a city.
The Tsukiji Market is one of them.

It only takes about 30 minutes to walk though the market which still has many vendors selling all sorts of sea life; dead and alive. You will see things that 99% of Americans have not seen and 99.9% have not tasted. Bring an appetite because the vendors sell in bulk and also in single servings. for take away. Eat your sea treasures upstairs or outside due to sanitary regulations.

Don't worry about the price because not matter what you pay you will not get the same quality and freshness in the US.

A feast for the eyes
Mar 2020 • Solo
What a place, spoilt for choice with places to eat and things to buy.

I opted for the pre packed sashimi from a stall inside, only because you had a choice of tunas and salmon.

Very reasonable in price and very tasty, came with wasabi and soy and chopsticks.

You can’t eat or drink in the indoor market but there is seating on 3rd floor.

Would highly recommend a visit and to try sashimi at its absolute freshest.

Still a deliciously fun place
Nov 2019
As many now know, the famous fish auction has unfortunately moved to the new location (Toyosu Market), but there are still great vendors and food to see and try. We usually visit this market place every time we come to Japan and always try to get there very early (~5:30-6am). Personally, I recommend getting there this early because this is when you'll get the freshest of picks of sea food to eat, get to see the cutting of large fish such as tuna at individual vendor booths, and best of all hardly any crowds/lines for anything!

Prices of small street dishes are very affordable and are a great way to try out new foods you may be unfamiliar with - just make sure to bring cash since not all vendors accept credit cards. Also, I recommend you bring some wet wipes or hand sanitizer with you since there are very limited places to wash your hands if you're not dinning inside a restaurant.
