Tsukiji Fish Market

Local name築地市場
LocationTokyo, Japan

This market is the largest and busiest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world. Spreading over what used to be a quiet upper-class residential area, the fish market only moved to Tsukiji after an earthquake in 1923. It opened in 1935 and many of the buildings from that era are still standing and are in use today.

Popular with locals and tourists alike, it is the place to enjoy the lively atmosphere of a Japanese culinary hotspot. If you want to buy some fresh food including vegetables and traditional Japanese foodstuffs, head here. You can also take a break from the shopping in one of the local restaurants - they offer excellent sushi.

When visiting, remember not to bargain with the sellers, as this is considered very rude. Also, if you are willing to get up early and register at 4:30 am, you can go and take part in the 5 am live tuna auction.

Tourists are only admitted to the following sections: the Seafood Wholesale, the Vegetable and Fruit Wholesale, the restaurants and the Outside Market.
