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 Seafood Intermediate Wholesalers' Area, part of the inner market (jōnai-shijō), is slated to move to new facilities in Toyosu in late 2018; the equally fascinating outer market, comprising hundreds of food stalls and restaurants, will stay put. Check the market's online calendar to make sure it's open, and for instructions on attending the tuna auctions, which start around 5am.
