Nice for a short stroll through the (very, very) crowded market and appreciate the wide range of products from the sea. It is also an awesome experience to stop in a restaurant and order sushi directly from a chef and watch him make it right in front of you! Be careful though, some shops don't allow pictures.
Great place to visit, and must go early morning to enjoy as all shops close around 2pm. Any choice of seafood is fresh and considered cheap. Prepare cash instead of plastics, unless in restaurant. Good place to give yourself a knife for cooking, there are shops for general and special purposes knifes, or bring along yours for customize sharpening.
If you love visiting food markets this one is great. Lots of sushi places to eat and lots of other fishy things on sale. You can also find shops selling traditional cooking utensils and knives, as well as a gorgeous like natural wine and sake shop. Really interesting place to visit when you are in Tokyo.
It was a public holiday when we visited, and yet there was still enough stalls open for us to eat ourselves silly. We were also fortunate to find a knife shop and a crockery shop open. We had a wonderful time wandering the small streets, and eating high quality seafood. We went wherever there was a line, and we weren't disappointed.
It is wonderful market with lots of Japanese food to savour and delight your taste buds. I enjoyed the grilled prawns, oysters and scallions. I saw how mocha tea is made. Wow, you must not miss the strawberry mochi, it was just heavenly. The white strawberry tastes so good and sweet. You must not miss this place. You must see, taste and savour all the Japanese delicacies. I enjoyed myself.
