Tsukiji Outer Market

Top choice market in Ginza & Tsukiji

Here, tightly packed rows of vendors hawk market and culinary-related goods, such as dried fish, seaweed, kitchen knives, rubber boots and crockery. It's also a fantastic place to eat, with great street food and a huge concentration of small restaurants and cafes, most specialising in seafood.

The area can get very crowded – avoid the narrow lanes if you're pushing a stroller or pulling luggage. Come early as most shops in the Outer Market close by 2pm. Some shops are closed on Sundays and Wednesdays.

Some wholesalers and shops from Tsukiji's inner market have stalls in Tsukiji Uogashi here.
