In 2018, the Japanese government moved its main fish market from Tsukiji to Toyosu. Since then, all seafood in Tokyo is beeing traded at Toyosu Fish Market. But still, the Tsukiji "outer" market remains in the same place with so many shops and restaraunts still active.
On this tour, we'll explore these two biggest fish markets in half-a-day.
Why visit the two markets?
Because, Toyosu fish maket is mainly the place for fisherman and wholesellers to trade seafood. It is interesting to see how they trade and work at the market.
Here, you will get to see an actual tuna auction! It starts very earily in the morning so it is rare for even locals to observe the tuna auction. You'll get to see giant tunas from all around Japan and the rest of the world and buyers and wholesellers actually doing auctions from the 3rd floor. It is a very unique experience and worth waking up early!
However, I'd say Toyosu is not the perfect place for people who would like to sample fresh seafood and snacks. That is the reason why we are also visiting Tsukiji fish market.
After watching the tuna auction and strolling through different floors of Toyosu market, we'll take a public transportation and head to Tsukiji Market (takes only 10mins).
At Tsukiji fish market which has over 400 stalls and stores lined on the both sides, we'll explore and taste what delicious delights they have to offer. We'll sample fresh seafood and local snacks recommended by your guide. The tour includes a couple of street foods as well!
We finish the tour by enjoying a seafood breakfast at the local restaurant inside the Tsukiji market. You'll get to choose a seafood bowl from their selections.
Don't worry if you have no idea where to watch the tuna auction and best foods to try at the both markets. Also, our guide will give you local insights into their history and culture you couldn't learn on your own!
