Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo

by Krista


Tokyo rocks. I can’t wait to go back. I need to spend more time exploring Tsukiji. I got to the market last Tuesday morning at 3:40 a.m. to meet my Tsukiji tour guide, Mr. Nakamura. Mr Nakamura used to work at the market himself.


During the tour of the market, I saw frozen tuna…

And I saw fresh tuna.

And then I went to Dai Wa Sushi and had a superbly awesome breakfast. I would have taken more photos, but the staff weren’t too keen on photo-taking. I squeezed in just this one.

In short, I would get up at 3 a.m. again to go tour Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market and I would highly recommend Nakamura-san as your tour guide.

Oh man, how I wish I were having that excellent sushi right now. A couple of other places to try, if you have time: Ten-Ichi tempura in the Ginza District, Kozue at the Park Hyatt (they do a modern interpretation of kaiseki), and the place at the top of the Sumitomo Building (but I can’t recall the name). Looking forward to hearing what else you find in Tokyo.

Wow, I would love to visit! I’ve been to the wet markets in Hong Kong but this looks spectacular (especially the frozen tuna!).

You’re sooo lucky! I’ve been to Tokyo four times, and can’t believe I’ve still not made it here. Last time I was very close to going. Next time!
