Let’s Go To Tsukiji Market♪ Experience The Fish Market In Japan!

05/11/2017

Tsukiji Market is one of the 11 markets in Tokyo located in Chuo-ku, Tsukiji. This Tsukiji market is the largest fish market in the world.  If you are looking for sashimi, the most definitely saying here is the place to eat tasty sashimi. Moreover, a lot of traders and general people come here to purchase.

Lets visit Tsukiji Tuna Wholesale that you cannot experience elsewhere!

Visiting Tsukiji Tuna Wholesale Market

Let’s wake up early in the morning and visit Tsukiji Tuna Auction Market!

せり市場

Many people are visiting here to see this Tuna bidding market regardless of Japan or abroad.

First, there were a lot of tourists visiting here to experience the tuna auctions. The visitors were impolite and ignored rules. In 2008, the market had banned all tourists from the auctions because the problems they caused. Later in 2010, the market decided to  reopen the tuna auctions to the public. However, there were no improvement so the tours have been prohibited finally. The following year, they started to reopen the tune auctions again by narrowing down the time and numbers of people than before.

Although, you need to visit here in the early morning. I think that it is a wonderful tuna bidding experience you should never miss!

It is also interesting to see the moment each fisherman`s fish raised  the  price of tuna is attached!

 

After the Visiting, Let`s Have Delicious Sushi!

We can say that the most popular sushi restaurants in Tokyo are Sukiyabashi Jiro and Kyubei in Ginza. Although, as some of you know, it is hard to visit and very expensive. I think that everyone wants to go to the best quality sushi restaurant with a reasonable price. Next, I would like to introduce two popular restaurants  that you can have only here and directly from Tsukiji!

 

Sushidai Main Store 寿司大

IMG_0419

This is the most famous sushi restaurant in Tsukiji market.

Some will line up before the opening, and it is normal to wait for 2,3 hours in weekend. “Nigiri Set” is 2600 yen and  “Manager Omakase Set (10 pieces) “ is 4000 yen. The high quality Neta(fish topping) directly from Tsukiji and Shari(sushi rice) are outstanding and reasonable to eat as this price♪  For “Manager Omakase Set”, at last Nigiri you can ask for favorite Neta.

Since the reception ending tag comes out before 1 pm, I recommend visiting here before lunch.

Hi Everyone! Happy to see you all through this website! =) Are you enjoying our articles and Tokyo information so far? I luv traveling abroad! It will enlarge my horizon and I can learn and discover various things ! I feel you also do! What I like about Japan is the four seasons is very clear. We can say that we can be proud of traditional customs, manufacturing, gourmet etc. Also, the more you will know about Japan, I think you may discover more interesting things. Not only Tokyo, but also other prefectures. Tokyo is the capital of Japan and where can discover new trend everyday, but in another hands, you can see Showa era period and old shopping district. I assume that every time you come to Tokyo you can find and experience new things!! To discover the new things , and for those who came to Japan several times or who came to japan for the first time, I hope my articles will help your itinerary!!
