Tsukiji Outer Market - 築地場外市場

The 200-square meter area is packed with about 330 fish stores, greengrocers and restaurants, with energetic shopkeepers calling out from every side. The adjacent Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market (inner market) is strictly for wholesalers, but the outer market is open to the public. Many people come here to shop not only for fish but also for a wide variety of foodstuffs such as vegetables, soup stock, seaweed, teas and rare delicacies. The best shopping hours are between 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. The market bustles with family shoppers on Saturdays, the day before the market closes.
