Check the calendar before you go
First things first: plan your visit and be informed. Theis closed on Sundays, public holidays and certain Wednesdays. Before you go, check the ’s calendar, which is regularly updated on the Tsukiji Market website.
Take a peek at the tuna auction
Hundreds of tourists are attracted to the market by a tuna auction that happens on a daily basis. Honestly, I am not intrigued enough to wake up in the wee hours of night just to observe the rapid-fire bidding on hundreds of frozen carcasses.
How to get there
Take the Oedo line and get off at Tsukiji-Shijo subway. You can also use Tsukiji on the Hibiya line — it’s a five-minute walk from there. From Ginza station, it’s 12 minutes on foot.
