This wholesale market is the 'kitchen' of Tokyo, providing fish, meat, fruits, vegetables and flowers. The most famous is the fish section, the largest in the world, that attracts tourists with early-morning live tuna auctions. The limited number of visitors, on a first come basis, are allowed to watch these auctions from 5:00 am to 6:15 am. Be careful with forklifts and vehicles moving around.

In the so-called outer market, there are shops to sell fresh fish to the public and restaurants to eat sushi and other seafood. For seafood lovers, this is a place to relish Tokyo's treats for breakfast. Most of shops close early in the afternoon.

It is worth visiting the world biggest fish wholesale market. May I ask you not to bother their commercial activities and to pay attention to the fast-moving motorized carts in the fish market for your safety.

If you visit Tsukiji wholesale market, why don't you extend your leg either to Ginza, most prestigious and cosmopolitan shopping street in Japan and/or to Hama-rikyu Gardens of the Tokugawa Shogun family, which are both located within ten-minute walking distances from Tsukiji Market. I am fully familiar with the historical backgrounds of the develoments of these areas, which you will find very informative to better understand the rapidly changing Tokyo.

After the visit we picked around the market looks good seafood restaurant to enjoy delicious.

我非常喜欢吃海产品,所以在来东京的行程中筑地鱼市场是必不可少的,我一定要去看一看这个世界最大的鱼市场的景象。那天我们一大早就来到了鱼市场,眼前的景象令我大吃一惊也令我眼界大开,这里居然有好几百种海鲜。参观完后我们在市场周围挑了家看上去还不错的海产品店享受美味。

We come early in the morning to the Tsukiji wholesale fish market famous for its tuna market. View is a stunning picture. On thousands of tuna into lying on a wooden platter, fish close to the sea, the weight of the label, marketing staff and all the people who come to the wholesale foot wear high boots, head into the Japan traditional white towel. I don't understand what they are saying, only hears a bargain like a singing folk songs, a section of the tuna buyers out of the market. Was truly spectacular. After the visit, we in the market surrounding a sushi restaurant to taste the next Japan authentic sushi, and much tastier than at home.

我们一大早慕名来到筑地鱼市场著名的金枪鱼批发市场。映入眼帘的是一副令人震撼的画面。成千条金枪鱼横卧在木盘上,鱼身上贴着海域、重量等情况的标签,市场的工作人员和前来批发的人都个个脚穿高统雨靴,头上扎着日本传统的白毛巾。我也听不懂他们在说什么,只听见一阵象唱民谣一样的讨价还价过后,一条条金枪鱼被买主拉出了市场。真是壮观。参观完后,我门就在市场周边的一家寿司店品尝了下日本正宗的寿司,比在国内的好吃多了。
