Know before you go
• Tsukiji inner market is moving to Toyosu on the 1st October. So after the date, tours will not visit the inner market (wholesale business area). Instead the tour will walk around Tsukiji outer market and Uogashi wholesaler market. The tour will run from 08:30 AM - 11:30 AM
• This is a group tour
• There is a moderate amount of walking involved in this tour
• The minimum drinking age is 20
• Because your guide may not be allowed to accompany you to the inner market, you will be given a handmade map and useful information before your exploration
• Tokyo metropolitan government changed the inner market entrance time to 11:00 AM from 10:00 AM. The market is less busy but you will stay for a slightly shorter time
