What to Expect

We have a tuna auction watching tour!

You can experience the traditional auction among the seafood buyers and auctioneers at the back of the Tsukiji fish market almost every morning from 5:25 am.
How many tunas are on the floor? How do you know which is good tuna and which isn't?
Which is better, the frozen one or the fresh one?
I can tell you lots of interesting information about tuna and seafood on this tour.
The highest bid for just one tuna was 1.5 million dollars! Can you believe it?! Why was is so expensive?!

After finishing watching the auction, we can go together to the outer Tsukiji market, which will already be opened for us to shop, to eat sushi, and to feel hustle and bustle of the just-opened market, while walking!
