Love the small eateries here. Will miss it when they close down the original venue
This place makes me nostalgic for an old Tokyo I've never known
Must visit before this market moves away....
Getting here early is worth it. Tons of great food places to grab a meal in the morning. Tuna action is just something you need to experience once. Fresh sushi/tuna for breakfast, nuff said.
There is no way you can get a seat at Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi without waiting in line at least for 2 hrs at any hour.
Any restaurant is good! Do come early for auction.
Try skipping eating at a sit down place and just eat as much of the street food as you can!
Love the quality here!
this is he one & only pace in the world for the best seafood for Japanese cuisine; Hanare from Malaysia has their own staff here to handpick the freshest seafood n produce to the flown in
Moving out November 2016. Going to miss this place
The outer market is good for food but definitely the inner market is more interesting. Don't forget to go inside, the entrance is at the end of the street
People say get there at 530. My local friend took me at 7 and it was still great. Don't feel pressured to go early, or if you missed your alarm clock, still go!
Well worth waking up early to go. If you want to see the auction you must arrive by 4:45 but just to eat arrive somewhere around 6-7.
Yumilicious sushi 🍣 don't expect it to be cheap though. Food in general is quite pricey in Tokyo
A lot of fresh fishes around.. Some even speak Chinese! Tuna fish is a must try!
Got there about 5am. Snuck in to witness the auction (didn't line up to be part of the 120 ppl) and the wholesale markets which didn't open until 9am to the public. First train out is about 4:40am
Fishy fish! All the fish you can eat but outside of the place in the outer market. Go early for the tuna auction
Tourist Information Centre on one side of the market is invaluable
Visit while you can. This place is slated for demolition soon
As a lazy tourist, I like to see other people work, that's why I come here.
To be in the first group of the day to witness the Tuna auction you need to be here at 03:30. The tour doesn't begin until 5.20 though so come prepared for a long wait
Sushi for breakfast - don't bother queueing, go to Okame at the end of the row. And don't bother with the sets if you know your Japanese fish and what you like.
Try the Gyudon stall on the outer market. Best breakfast and wash it down with a cold Asahi.
Just a normal fish market i guess if you do not go for the auction. Can drop by if you are in tokyo as they will shift to new place in end 2016 for redevelopment. It is a valuable 60acres prime land!
It's worth the wait.
Get here before 330am if you want to be part of the chosen few. Overhear refugee jokes in half-asleep fugue state.
Arrive for 8am to look around the 'outer market' with lots of stalls. At 9am they let tourists into the 'inner market' where the wholesale of fish goes on - it is much more interesting in this part.
More tourists than actual fish on this market 🙈
You can get cheap price for salmon
Everyone likes the sushi but I like the tamagoyaki vendors. You can buy a big slab or a single skewer.
A place u have to come in early morning and long queue for your breakfast!
Woke up at 3am to cab it to the market by 3:30am. The entrance by the bridge. Plenty of staff will direct you to the info center. We walked in with about 90 people already with vests. They let 120 in.
Not to be missed! Got here at 03:15 for the tuna auction, got a place on the 1st group. By 03:45 there were no more free spots left, and this was a Saturday morning with heavy rain.
Humongous place, all sorts of fish, never seen tunas this big, don't miss the tuna auction
donburi row, just follow the crowd
It's enormous! Whatever creature lives in the ocean I bet you can find it here. If you're a very early bird you can witness tuna auction!
Love ti be inside fish market, new experience on fish bidding
Come before 9am
You should go there before 7:00 a.m. After it's not authentic.
Love the ambience. They gives free tester a lot.
Duck into sushi places where you're the only non local - don't sweat the hyped tourism vibe
Find the scallop guy - cooked right in the shell with a sprinkle of soy
Start wandering around at 5am - take a nap - and head back closer to 9am to start eating.
Unless you are a sushi guru, you're probably better off going to one of the sushi bars without the 2 hour queue.
The wait at Daiwa sushi was only around 40 mins (little compared to next door). Our chef was very personable and adorable, and the chef's special was absolutely delicious!
The freshest fish & sushi/sashimi anywhere. So delicious. Get there early and stroll through the outside market. The wholesale / inside market is open to tourists after 9am.
Amazing experience but in weekends gets so crowded that u can't even move! Prefer weekdays for a tranquil visit. Go very very hungry, here sushi prices may be the cheapest in Tokyo!
I don't know how ppl can eat sushi at 9am but there's queues outside several outlets. Can buy green tea, pottery and other food items here too.
One of the must go in Tokyo, regardless if you cannot make to see the tuna auction at 5 am
The main attraction is the sushi restaurants, there are two alleys. Make sure to get there early or you will wait on some seriously long lines for the famous places. Walk to Ginza after.
