At Tsukiji, central Tokyo, we'll watch an energetic tuna auction !!

After the auction, enjoy "Uogashi-yokocho". Being in this old style shopping arcade is like a kind of "Time Slip" to 60's Japan !

Shall we share this amazing experience together ? I'm looking forward to seeing you !


Check out what we are going to do.

Watching Tsukiji Tuna Auction

Strolling in Tsukiji Uogashi Yokocho (shopping arcade)

Ending Point

Tsukiji Fish Market

What to Expect

That'll be really unique experience for you !! That's because year after year, this auction attracts more people.

At 1:30 am, our meeting time, near the Kachidoki Gate of Tsukiji Fish Market, in front of "Osakana Fukyu Center (Fish Information Center)", there must already be a line of people waiting for the auction. Please find me near the head of this line having your name board ! It's me !

We'll wait for about half an hour before entering the building of the Center and we'll wait there for about 3 hours before the auction.

But, that's the prelude of the unique exciting auction !

Undoubtedly that'll be your one of great memories of Tokyo. I'm sure the auction itself will greatly impress you.

Adding after the auction, the busiest and coolest atmosphere of the market will also be your unforgettable scene.

Braceing air of early morning. Small carts and vehicles come from all directions. In the sky, sea gulls are crying......

Inclusions & Exclusions

What‘s included

guide fee

What‘s not included

breakfast, taxi fare or public transportation fee from your hotel to the Market if necessary

(If you need hotel pick-up, depending on the location of your hotel, pick-up might not be available. We'll confirm it before fixing this tour).

Important Information

This tour depends on the calender of the Tsukiji Fish Market and temporary closure of the auction site to the public.

There are some visiter's rules for Tuna Auction. After our tour is fixed, I'll introduce you details of the rules.

At the auction area, you can take photos but please don't use flash !! That's very important because flash interferes the auction.

High heeled shoes and sandals are not allowed to enter the market.

Our meeting place, "Osakana Fukyu Center (Fish Information Center)" is by the Kachidoki Bridge entrance of the Tsukiji Market.

The address is,

6-20-5 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku

If you use a taxi to the Center, please let your taxi driver know this address.

Your presence at the Center before registration time is a "must".

If you don't appear until 1:50 a.m., this tour would be difficult because registration time is actually from 2 a.m. on a first-come first served basis.

The number of visitors per day is up to 120. Recently, this registration time became earlier and earlier because more and more people gathered earlier.

Please don't be late. I'd like to guarantee your visite to the auction. I'd wait for you as soon as possible. But your presence is a "must".

Most shops in the Market accept only cash. Credit cards are not available in many cases. Please take care.

The Tsukiji Fish Market has a plan to move to Toyosu, 2.3 kilometers south of Tsukiji. But the date for the moving is not fixed yet.

This tour depends on the moving. If the Market moves at the date earlier than the one you reserved, I'm afraid the tour would be forced to be cancelled.

Cancellation Policy

  • Free cancellation - 30 days prior to meeting time
  • 50% Refund - 15 to 29 days prior to meeting time
  • No Refund - Within 14 day(s) prior to meeting time
