A busy market full of fishmongers and sushi

While the inner market of Tsujiki is famed for its competitive wholesale 4:00 a.m. fish auctions, the outer market caters more to the general sushi-loving public. Come before noon to witness throngs of hungry shoppers looking for the freshest fish and foodstuffs. With over 400 shops and restaurants to explore, you’ll find everything you can imagine, from roe and shellfish to professional kitchenware and utensils, though sushi is the main draw for most visitors.


  • Exploring the fine selection of rare fish and seaweed varieties, some of which you’ve likely never seen before
  • Trying out one of the less-traveled sushi shops concealed within the many alleys and alcoves of the market

Perhaps the most popular food options for tourists are rival restaurants Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi, which draw long lines of Tsukiji newcomers waiting to get an authentic taste of Japan’s freshest sushi. But you don’t have to deal with the three-hour wait times to find something delicious. There is plenty of sushi to sample hidden throughout the outer market, all delicious in its own right.

Opened in 1923 after the Great Kanto Earthquake decimated the old fish market, Tsukiji Market is located in central Tokyo between the Sumida River and Ginza. After enjoying the food and sights at Tsukiji, consider a visit to neighboring Tsukiji Hongan-ji Temple, a curious temple that melds architectural styles from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam.
