Full description
Your tour begins early in the morning when the fresh tuna has just arrived at the Toyosu Fish Market. Meet your guide at the southern entrance gate. From there head up to the observation floor, where a master tuna monger will provide background on Japan’s fishing industry. Watch the auction unfold and witness the excitement as buyers compete for the highest quality fish. During the auction, your guide will offer commentary, giving context to this thrilling daily drama.

After the auction, stroll through the wholesale area, which is normally not only open to professional buyers and not the general public. Meet local fishmongers and pick their brains about fish, food, and their industry. Ask the professionals what the best way to pick out a good fish is.

Finish your tour with a visit to the shopping and restaurant area of the market. Get a recommendation from your guide on some of the best restaurants to have breakfast.
