A must see if you love sushi/fresh fish and you want to see where it comes from Mar 25, 2012
Wow... You can even buy fresh sashimi, eat it on the spot, and keep going... Every asile and corner you turn, there's something else to see. If you get there early enough, you can see the tuna auction. There's SO MUCH going on, it's hard to keep track of. All sorts of fish, all sorts of yummy fresh good "snacks" if you're into SUPER fresh fish. A fisherman's dream, and a sushi lover's paradise...

The pictures speak for themselves. You can snack there, then walk out of the market and find yourself a seat at a nice restaurant and grab breakfast.

Fresh start to the Day Mar 22, 2011
The tokyo fish market is recommended in most of the guide books as one of the top attraction to see whilst in the city.

I set out very early in the morning and got to the fish market for 5am so that I could see the Whole process as the market.

Catches been brought in, Tuna Auction, Industrial Scale prep of the fish, a wander round the market watching the local restaurants come and buy their supplies for the day. The final port of call was to a local bar for some unbeatable sushi.

Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo Jun 01, 2011
Wake up at the ungodly hour of 4 am to catch the famous tuna auctions at the world’s largest seafood market in Tsukiji, Tokyo. The place is a madhouse - giant tuna and assorted seafood being thrown around and bidden on like there's no tomorrow. Also check out the wholesaler section and the outdoor eateries. I find the area quite dangerous though with “turret truck” fish transporters zipping in dangerous speeds all over the market. If you get hit by one of these babies you will literally be sleeping with the fishes.

Wake up early to be in everyone's way Dec 30, 2010
Before going to Japan, I heard from many sources that I simply must get up at 4:30 in the morning to see the fish auctions at the Tsukiji market. So I went and I was very disappointed. I don't know why, it's exactly what everyone says it is, but it's not very picturesque, there's nothing really to do or see, and you're constantly trying not to get run over. If you're curious about the hustle and bustle of a fish market (remember, the fish is not for you to buy), then check it out. The only part of the experience that I recommend is any of the many tiny sushi restaurants surrounding the market. You'd be hard-pressed to find better sushi anywhere else in the world.
Sushi breakfast!
