About Tsukiji Market
The former Tsukiji Market was the oldest of the 11 central wholesale markets in Tokyo, and was a general market handling marine products and fruits and vegetables.
The market supplies not only Tokyo but also the surrounding prefectures of the Kanto region. In particular, it handled one of the world’s largest volumes of marine products, and served as Japan’s market for quoted prices.
The market is closed on Sundays and most Wednesdays, and it is also closed on public holidays, so be sure to check the official website before you leave.
Tsukiji Market is divided into onsite and offsite, and onsite is divided into the Fisheries Department, the Fruit Department, and the Fish Gashiki Yokocho Shopping Street.
On-site Closing Hours: The closing hours of the Fisheries Department, the Fruit Department, and the Ugashi-Yokocho Shopping Street are roughly the same, but the Fruit Department is closed for two additional days during the year.

Uchiba consists of three parts: the fishery section, the fruit section, and the fish gaoshi yokocho shopping street.
There are many famous restaurants in the shopping street, which will be introduced in detail below.
The fishery department and the fruit department are for wholesaling and auctions, and the tuna auction starts at 5:00 and ends at 6:30, followed by the fruit and vegetable auction.
Although the inside wholesale is the real essence of Tsukiji Market, but the number of visitors is limited every day (about 120 people) 5 o’clock to enter, it is said that the queue will start at 4 o’clock, and the queue may not be able to enter (first come, first served) E and the nearby subway only starts operating at 5 o’clock, so to visit first, you need to live near Tsukiji Market
Tourists play mainly on the outside, various stalls, many people choose to eat breakfast here (well, sushi set ….. Basically, lunch can be waived)
The outer field ends at 2:00 p.m.

I got up at 4am and went to the Tsukiji Market, which was a little disappointing because the main market was closed to people, so I had to go to the outer market, where there were more dry things.
There are also oysters to eat, but the price is expensive.
