Best to pre-arrange your market tour, nowadays they don't allow you to go inside the market without permission. This is also more popular now because of Jiro Dreams of Sushi documentary. It's an interesting place also, I'm sure it's more active when it's early morning. Expect foreign tourists. Overall an interesting experience. Some restaruarants don't allow filming their place.

There's the main functional market that everyone goes to witness the wholesale auctions and chaos. Right by the main gate is a much calmer and cleaner market featuring seafood stalls for the individual tourist. One thing that is a Japan-only phenomenon is the "no eating and walking" rules - they actually have a guard walking the hall with a big... More

Came to see all the seafood unfortunately most is closed to the public, after 10am most of the seafood has gone. The outer market has some interesting shops with different and unusual food types. You can buy pretty much anything else you want in the area but very crowded and hard to get around. If you do not like crowds... More

The Tsukiji Outer Market has so much cool stuff to see and eat. Lots of food stalls, lots of seafood. If you don't like seafood, there are other items to eat too. There was even ice cream. You can get skewers of different proteins for cheap too.

Wonderful local food market with large range of food options ranging from eat on a bench with 3 chairs to large restaurants to takeaway raw and some cooked. Also a few sweet stalls, produce and ceramics (limited). Go with like-minded-food-friends. How was I supposed to know my colleagues don't eat raw food!

Walking around here is like smell of food heaven. So much to try and so little time! They also have cute souvenirs around but mostly eating.

You will most likely see fruit, vegetables and seafood you have not experienced before. It gets crowded so remain patient. And bring cash as most stalls do not have card machines. Some souvenir stalls are also among the food. Be prepared to walk a long way.
