Toyosu Wholesale Fish Market
Despite the controversial closure of Tsukiji’s inner market in late 2018, this event paved the way for Tokyo’s newest and even bigger fish market, Toyosu Wholesale Fish Market. Spread across two separate warehouses, the new fish market covers multiple floors with each dedicated to different foods. Not only fish, Toyosu sells fruit and vegetable produce, as well as kitchen wares and professional knives. One for fish and one for fresh produce, the buildings are joined by a series of walkways weaving in and around the enormous marketplace. Wide observation windows gaze down upon the hustle and bustle of the tuna auctions and wholesale market, separated from the visitor’s retail area but nevertheless, visitors will be spoilt for choice with 3 restaurant areas. The food options at Toyosu Fish Market are overwhelming yet delicious, as many popular stores from Tsukiji transferred too, so digest a seafood feast of sushi and sashimi while taking in the views from the rooftop garden. Tokyo’s best place to get a fishy fix, Toyosu is newer, bigger, and better, with plans to continue expanding.
