    Two counters at this enormous, crowded market stand out above the rest: Sushi-Dai and Daiwa Sushi. This is the freshest sushi you will ever try, and the immense variety will impress you too.

    you only get once chance to see the tuna catches early in the morning (and to get kicked out promptly by security), but it's an experience you just have to add to your life to-do list

    Waking up early is worth it for this wholesale fish market. Have a sushi breakfast, or if you’re not buying anything, just watch the activities unfold. Take the Hibiya Line, then Exit 1 in Tsukiji.

    Go at the crack of dawn (like a bit before 5.30am) any day for the tuna auction, get a bowl of tuna sashimi at a stall, and then go take a nap at the hamarikyu botanical gardens nearby.

    Tsukiji is a MUST. Top five places I visited in Asia. Sushi for breakfast at dawn, watch the auction and your jaw drop because you will be consuming the freshest fish you've ever had in your life.

    Check: http://www.shijou.metro.tokyo.jp/english/market/tsukiji.html before going to see if the market is open to the public that day or not!

    Only the first 120 people are allowed to see the tuna auction each morning. Head to the Fish Information Center at the Kachidoki Bridge BEFORE 4am to get a spot, else you'll be crying.

    The craziest Japanese experience I've ever encountered. They do not give two sh!ts about you here, in a good way of course. Watch out for moving carts and explore various species of fresh fish!

    Amazing sashimi. It ruined sashimi everywhere else for me.

    Locals form long lines to sample market-fresh fish at Sushi Dai, but there are plenty of other options. Enjoy sashimi at Nakaya, oyako donburi at Torito, or croissants at Orimine Bakers.

    If you eat sushi here, do your homework ahead of time. Not all restaurants here are created even nearly equal

    4:30am is too late! Get there by 4am to be guaranteed a spot in the auction.

    Susan Loh · October 18, 2012
  • Bruno S.

    Either come early for the Tuna auction or at 9am to see the fish wholesale area (closed for visitors before 9). A few small restaurants outside, not worth. Line for Daiwa rest is huge, I did not try.

    Get the omakase C set at Sushibun (鮨文), best in the world!

    Aki Naito · June 27, 2010
  • Doris H.

    Make sure to check if the tuna auction is open to the public before waking up crazy early. Not opened this time of the year because of busy season.

    4:20am is the late as you can get a spot in line. Come at 4 am to be safe.

    Really do come early! We arrived at 430am and were one of the last few to make it in that morning!

    Justine · January 27, 2014
  • George J.

    Get here well before 4:30am to see the tuna auctions. Note: Trains don't run at this time + they only take a limited amount of people so getting here earlier is better. Once in a lifetime experience!

    George Joseph · June 16, 2013
  • Cam C.

    Ate at Daiwa Sushi, you should too. Best sushi I've ever had. The restaurant is a sushi bar with maybe ten seats. The sushi chef reaches over the bar to put fresh sushi on your plate. Worth the wait.

    Cam Cornish · March 18, 2013
  • Thierry M.

    Get at the information desk around 4am if you want to be allowed in and see the auctions. Only 120 visitors per day. Be reassured, you will wait inside a building, not outside in the cold (or heat!).

    Knife and some kitchen appliances are good quality and well functionality. Lots of things you may find a lovely sovenir :-)

  • Chutima N.

    If you want to visit fresh market and see how people work, open for public and self tour at 9 am, very clean there, no flies. Fresh fish is cheaper inside compare to the store before the market

  • STA Travel U.S.

    Make sure to plan to plan ahead as the Market is closed on Sundays and the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month.
