Walking distance from sleek and glittering Ginza, Tsukiji begs you to trade your swanky shopping totes in favor of heavy-duty plastic bags. Tsukiji is home to the world’s largest wholesale seafood market—speeding turret trucks zip by the inner market as voices rise in fierce competition for fresh tuna during early morning auctions. If waking before 5 a.m. doesn’t bait you, Tsukiji’s less frenzied outer market reels in late(r) risers and diners destined for sashimi plates.See 4 places to stay Save this neighborhood
