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.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

Supposedly the busiest Fish Market in the world this market has giant tuna, giant crabs, sushi to die for and some of the most beautifully presented fish dishes you will ever have the delight to enjoy. Street food on a massive scale.

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

Hamrikyu Gardens is 15 minutes walk from Tsukiji market. It opens at 9am and is a lovely spot of culture and tranquility in the city. Visit the gardens and traditional tea houses.
