The world’s finest seafood is just one of the many reasons people visit Tokyo. And there’s no better place to find it than at the bustling seafood emporium at Tsukjii Market. One of the world’s largest markets of any kind, its history dates back 400 years. Selling over 2,000 tons of seafood a day, it’s no surprise locals call it “A Kitchen for 12 Million People in Tokyo.”
Starting at 5:00 am, you’re welcome to navigate the market on your own, or to ask our Concierge for basic information on how to best peruse the Tsukjii Market. We can also arrange a private guide to provide an inside look at the inner workings of the market, as one of this scale and pace may prove daunting for some visitors. Our guide will not only lead you through the many areas of interest, they'll also identify the best cuts from a selection of as many as 450 different types of fish and seafood.
Once you’ve learned the local customs, visit one of the fine restaurants right outside of the market, where you can eat fresh sushi just like a local.
