What we will do

Meet Zens Friend in front of the gate of Tsukiji Honganji Temple and start exploring the Tsukiji fish market.

Explore the maze of seafood vendors at the inside seafood market.


The sight of the many kinds of fresh seafood and the busy atmosphere of scooters, trucks, sellers and buyers hurrying around, make Tsukiji Market a major tourist attractions. It is an exciting area for tourists to view and photograph the fish and the auction, but it is also an area where tourists are likely to interfere with the professionals at work.

Eating delicious marine foods at the outside market!

The outer market consists of a few blocks of small retail shops and restaurants crowded along narrow lanes. A visit to Tsukiji Market is best combined with a fresh seafood meal at one of the local restaurants.

Marine cuisine such as "Sushi" is one of the most famous Japanese food you shouldn't miss. Here in Tsukiji you can taste fresh marine dishes.
