  • Fun place. Find all kinds of fresh Seafood, spices and more. Lots of lil rest to try the fresh catch. Great Pottery stores. Fun part was getting them home but, they packed them very well. 1 of the best knife stores in Tokyo we've been 3 times now n bought so many.. So much to try and enjoy spend at least a few hrs or more.

  • I'm so glad the outer market is still open! I heard it's closing at the end of the year and moving to the new location. If that's true, get over to the market at Tsukiji post haste and experience an important part of Tokyo fishing history while you can! Strangely, this is where I had my first taste of Japanese ice cream, of all things. It's quite different from US ice cream - not as sweet but a much creamier texture. It took a moment for my taste buds to get adjusted but I found I quite liked it!

  • Super fresh seafood market. You'll be served with tasty seafood. The grilled eel is really nice and goes well with the sauce. They sell yummy and sweet strawberries too! I found quite a lot of unique taste here. A must-go destination for sure, especially if you love seafood :)

  • Absolutely the best experience I have ever had with seafood street food. You need to ensure that you get there before 8 am so you can beat the heavy crowds. This place is easy to get to by public transport

  • The old market. Went to get street food and look for some uni to eat. Definitely do some research before going as the sheer amount of places could make finding a place to sit down and eat difficult. A lot of places seem like a tourist trap, but I think the restaurants are truly trying to make foreigners feel comfortable. I haven't had a bad experience the few times going to a random place.
