Welcome to SeeVoov,
Where would you like to go?
Chūō (中央区, Chūō-ku, "Central Ward") is a special ward that forms part of the heart of Tokyo, Japan. The ward refers to itself in English as Chūō City. Literally meaning "Central Ward", it is historically the main commercial center of Tokyo, although Shinjuku has risen to challenge it since the end of World War II. The most famous district in Chūō is Ginza, built on the site of a former silver mint from which it takes its name. The gold mint, or Kinza (金座), formerly occupied the site of the present-day Bank of Japan headquarters building, also in Chūō. As of May 1, 2015, the ward has an estimated resident population of 141,454, and a population density of 13,850 persons per km². The total area is 10.21 km². However, because of the concentration of businesses, offices and retail space, the daytime population swells to an estimated 650,000.

Didn't go for the early auction, but came around 10 or so and just walked around the outer marketplace. It was super cool! We tried a ton of different street food from different vendors selling super fresh seafood and amazing Kobe beef! If you like seafood and want to try some of the freshest around and try a lot of different things this is a great place to go.

This is not simply a market; it is an experience! There were so many things to see and eat here and the sizes of the tuna are incredible. Tsukiji is an action-packed, frenetic marketplace so watch out for the speeding carts and be sure to eat in any of the sushi restaurants surrounding the perimeter as it's wonderfully fresh! Against our instincts, we went for the one with the shortest queue and it was beyond delicious and full of only locals, so don't be fooled into thinking long queues equals best.

Great place to see the fish shopping crowds and eat the freshest sushi there is outthere. A must visit. Make sure to be there well before noon, as the lunch lineups for the good sushi places might get you disappointed (most places close at 1pm and run out of fish sometimes earlier). You can easily plan to go directly for breakfast instead, to guarantee you get all the fish you want :). And - if you're into not sleeping 😁 - you can line up around 2am for a 5am access to the tuna bidding. Only the first 120 in line get in though, hence the early need to line up.

GO BEFORE IT IS GONE!!!! The hustle and bustle and the FISH of every type and size is a big fat 'wow'. You can also grab some VERY FRESH sushi in the surrounding restaurants. BE CAREFUL of the the ZIPPY mini truck things. THEY MEAN BUSINESS and they will mow you down. Also film surreptitiously a lot of the vendors don't want you taking pix. You can't enter the main bit until after 9 or 10 so unless you are doing the 'go at 2AM to see if you can get into the Tuna Auction then sleep in. There will still be stuff to see. WEAR sensible shoes and know that you will be stepping on fish guts.

This fish market is obviously one of the most famous attractions in Japan. If you're able to get up super early you can see the fish auction of the Tunas. The market will be closing at the end of this year and move to a new site. I highly recommend you check it out before it's gone forever. This Market has been here for over 300 years. If you can't make it in time to go see the auction, don't worry there's plenty to see it's an amazing place. Don't forget to bring your appetite though as you will find some of the most amazing sushi and sashimi in the world. You can't beat the prices either.
