Overview

Let's visit world famous fish market! The Tsukiji Market is known as one of the world's largest fish markets handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day. We visit the outer market dute to policy change. The Tsukiji Fish Market is run by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government and they have just changed their policy: we can enter the inner market from 11:00 am. 90% of the shops are closed.

What to Expect

The inner market is consists of more than 600 middle wholesalers and basically for the professionals; restaurants including sushi restaurants, fish shops, supermarkets and so on. Each shop in the inner market has its own specialty. One shop sells only tuna and other shop is for sea urchin. You will encounter a great variety of marine products and people who dedicate themselves not only to sell the highest quality products but also to hand down our food culture with pride. The outer market, meanwhile, is for the public. You can find anything related to eating and food; kitchen utensils, tableware, dried food, seaweed, tea, seasonings, knives, decoration stuff, packages,etc. Last but not least, you can't miss your chance of trying out delicious foods!

“ Two Days in Tokyo ”

We thoughly enjoyed our two days with Haruko. We experienced a plane delay and she accommodated our changed schedules and a rain storm, shared her insights and love of the city, and was both warm and professional. Highlights were the museums and gardens, the markets and a visit to a kimono shop! We plan to meet again on our next trip.

“ Tsukiji market and new old tokyo ”

Haruko is very fun loving. She is very flexible. Change as we go. I had one must to do list that is Tsukiji market and she did her best to show me around. This is the start of the busy season, there is too many people to really stop and tell stories. I wanted also to see the old and the new in tokyo and she just keep going. Every question ask, she tries to help me understand why.
