Ready your market-appropriate footwear, flashless camera, and tolerance for fishy aromas—it’s time to explore Tsukiji Fish Market! The biggest wholesale fish and seafood establishment in Tokyo comes alive early in the morning, with chefs and restaurant buyers stocking up for the day’s menu. The Tuna Auctions are also quite famous here, but don’t forget to check the schedule before you visit to see if it’s open to the public. Stroll through the inner market to see lanes and alleys of every sea creature imaginable! The area is only open to tourists at 11:00AM, but those eyeing to buy the freshest catch (or taste the best sushi ever) may still enter—just remember to respect the rules. Food-loving travelers may continue their culinary expedition at the outer market where rows of ramen places, sushi counters, produce vendors, and stalls of Japanese staple ingredients abound!
