Tsukiji Fish Market, in the centre of Tokyo, is the biggest in the world. You need to get there for 5am, but trust me, it’s well worth the agony. Visitor numbers are strictly limited and to get in on the action at the tuna auction you need the early start.
2000 tonnes of seafood is processed and sold here every day and the inner market is a maze of stalls selling every type of marine creature known to man. A plethora of fish, molluscs, seaweed and crustaceans, in every colour, shape and texture, from the beautiful to the grotesque.
Whatever you do, don’t miss breakfast at one of the tiny sushi restaurants in the outer market. Perch at the counter and feast on the freshest, tastiest sushi and sashimi. Without a doubt the most memorable breakfast I’ve ever eaten.
