Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market | Witness the Amazing Tuna Auction

Tsukiji Fish Market is dubbed for The Tokyo Central Wholesale Market. In terms of floor area and sales volume, it is one of the largest markets on earth, providing the millions of residents of the city with fresh produce including vegetables, meat and fish. In particular, the market is most famous for fresh fish, for having a history dating back to five hundred years and handling over 2,000 tons of seafood per day. The wholesale area consists of hundreds of small stands in a large, crowded hall, where buyers and sellers hurry along narrow lanes with their carts and trucks. It is an exciting area for tourists to view and photograph the fish and the action. The sight of the many kinds of fresh fish and other seafood and the busy atmosphere of scooters, trucks, sellers and buyers hurrying around, make Tsukiji Market a major tourist attraction. With the growing number of visitors to the market, several restrictions and rules have been set. Please follow important rules that you may be presented with during your visit to the market, such as staying out of restricted areas and allowing for a steady flow of traffic.

The Tsukiji Market is just one of the many unforgettable destinations featured in Japan Deluxe Tour's tour packages. With these tour packages, the Tsukiji tuna auction tour, usually valued at $150, is free for our tour participants.
