Tsukishima is a man made island in Tokyo Bay, just across the channel from Tsukiji fish market. Tsukishima is best known for monjayaki, a kind of runny pancake with different ingredients, such as seafood, meat and vegetables, mixed into the batter.

Its a good place to try monjyaki and okonomiyaki. There is also a shop that sells Japanese clogs but each pair costs at least 1000 Yen. Besides that, the freshly baked melon pan is great. There is also a place to buy freshly roasted coffee beans.

Trinkets and souvenirs galore. So many vendors and huge crowds. Lots to taste and see. All different price ranges for souvenir gifts and items to remember your trip to this culturally rich area. Lots of delicious treats and foods to experience. Bring your camera and be prepared to visit surrounding temples and other areas as well. The rickshaw is another... More

This is a really fun experience where you get to cook your own meal on a hot plate. It's very hot, so I wouldn't recommend it for a family with children under middle school age, but it was great entertainment, and we all ate until we were satisfied.

Monjya-yaki is a local Tokyo food. Made from cabbage and flour. They come with different meat toppings and some shops even offer curry flavours. A delicacy in Tokyo but be aware as depending on the shop, you might need to make the monjya-yaki yourself so be sure to ask for help on how to cook a monjya from the waiter... More

My friend and I took the metro to Tsukishima Monjya St on our last night in Tokyo. We went to specifically to eat the local specialty- monjya. We found a place that had an English menu and went inside for a beer and monjya. Monjya is a tasty savoury pancake cooked on a hot plate in the table you sit... More

If you're a fan of seafood then you wouldn't want to miss this...it is just a market but the vibe is buzzing in the morning and you get to see all the fish you have in its natural form before plated for lunch. It is best to go in the morning or just before lunch then you can pop in... More

If you are so hungry, this is not the place because you got to cook yourself and it takes time. But if you gathered with friends, chat and don't mind slow eating, this place is fun. The street full of selection of restaurants, all with the same type of food: monjya yaki/okonomiyaki.

Being in the heart of the fish market, you can purchase knick knacks and also buy foods that they will serve right in front of you or to snack on. Highly recommended to enjoy this after eating at one of the restaurants here or visiting the fish market in the am.

Really fascinating to see these restaurants where they (and you) cook the food literally on the table, on a hot plate in front of you, built into the table. Fun for groups and kids (but make sure they're careful not to get too close or touch the hot plate of course). We ate at one of these and it was... More

Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic.
