I will take you to the outer market of Tsukiji including its new fish retail area where you can see a lot of sea food. There are many food shops but popular ones are over crowded with long lines. If you want to have a good sushi without waiting a long time, we should have early sushi lunch before 11AM (sushi lunch from 3,000 JPY). So please have a light breakfast before the tour.
