Tsukiji Market
Fruit, vegetables, flowers and meat are sold here, but it's seafood – around 2000 tonnes of it traded daily – that Tsukiji is most famous for. The frenetic inner market (jōnai-shijō) is slated to move to Toyosu in 2017 or possibly later; the equally fascinating outer market, comprising hundreds of food stalls and restaurants, will stay put. Before coming here, check the market's online calendar to make sure it's open, and for instructions on attending the tuna auctions, which start around 5am.
