Explore the brand-new Toyosu Market with a professional, English-speaking guide, and watch the famous tuna auction in the early morning.
Experience the energy and excitement of Tokyo's premier tuna auction at the brand-new Toyosu Fish Market, with a professional and knowledgeable tour guide! Your guide Kiyoshi will lead you each step of the way to watch the tuna auction. With his many years of experience in Japan's hotel and food and beverage industries, he will also teach you about the history of the fish market, its offerings, and about the food industry in Japan. You'll be one of the first people to arrive at the auction site at 05:00, to reserve your spot and see the brokers checking deep inside the tuna with flashlights as they assess the quality before the auction. Then, witness the famous tuna auction between 05:30 and 06:00. You can experience this exciting event live and see the extravagant prices paid for the highest quality tuna. After watching the tuna auction, complete your morning with a sushi breakfast at a highly recommended restaurant. This is sure to be the freshest sushi you have ever eaten! Following your breakfast, you'll tour the Toyosu Seafood Market, and the old market town of Tsukiji where the auction used to take place — still a vibrant and interesting place to visit.
**Application for the lower observation deck** We usually observe the tuna auction from the upper deck. There is also a special lower observation deck limited to 120 people each day, only for visitors who apply in advance. If you'd like to watch from the lower deck, you need to apply by the middle of the month before your intended visit. 120 successful applicants for each day are chosen by lottery. Therefore, please book well in advance if you want to apply for access to the lower deck.
