Tsukiji Outer Market 築地場外市場

4-16-2 Tsukiji, Chuo City, Tokyo

A busy market full of fishmongers and sushi

Although the wholesale market in Tsukiji moved to Toyosu in October 2018, the outer market is still a place where you can enjoy dining and shopping. Come before noon to witness throngs of hungry shoppers looking for the freshest fish and food. Although sushi is the main draw, the outer market features a variety of restaurants to explore. And in addition to dining establishments, there are also many shops selling goods such as foodstuffs and kitchenware.

Tips

  • Explore the fine selection of rare ingredients and cooking utensils lined up as you wander the market.
  • Try out one of the less-visited shops concealed within the alleys and alcoves in the area

With its selection of popular shops to well-known hideaways, enjoy the outer market's mouth-watering dishes.

Opened in 1923, Tsukiji Market is located in central Tokyo between the Sumidagawa River and Ginza. After enjoying the food and sights at Tsukiji, consider a visit to neighboring Tsukiji Honganji Temple, a curious temple that melds architectural styles from Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam.
