Toyosu Fish Market (formerly the Tsukiji Fish Market)

Toyosu Fish Market (formerly the Tsukiji Fish Market)

This is one of my favorite stops! I visited the Tsukiji Fish Market in the last week of the market at its original location, but I will give you details on the new location.

This famous fish market opened its doors on October 11, 2018, in the Bay of Tokyo. This market provides tourists an opportunity to see the workers in action selling their catch. There are three buildings, two for seafood and one for fruits and vegetables. These buildings are connected through a series of walkways. Make sure to enter through the dedicated entrances and stay on the paths so as to not interfere with business.

You must arrive early around 5 a.m. to see the tuna auctions that occur at 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.  If you want the full effect of the action, the noise along with the hustle and bustle, then make a reservation for the observation deck that overlooks the warehouse.

Try some of the freshest seafood you can possibly find in the areas surrounding the market.

Helpful Information

Best Time to Visit: It is very important that you arrive early around 5 a.m. If you want to see the tuna auctions they happen at 5:30 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
