    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.
