"World's Largest Fish Market" Tsukiji Market Tip by sagamigal

Tsukiji Market, Tokyo: 50 reviews and 69 photos

You can watch the fast-paced action in a huge warehouse-like market. There's a sign at the entrance that reminds you that people are actually working and you need to be careful of the cars, vans and wagons that wiz past you in every imaginable direction! It's cool to see what they do with all the tuna and other fish after they leave the ships.
It's best to get there around 3AM and then grab a bite to eat at one the many sushi joints located outside the gates. Don't worry cause there's lots to choose from!

Address: 5-2 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku
Directions: Tsukijishijo station or Tsukiji station. Both of these stations are also on the same line as Roppongi..so if you're tired of partying..take a 15 minute taxi ride to the market (trains don't run at that time)
