The reason I’m putting this in my Good Things section is simply because I don’t speak Japanese therefore I’m not able to tell you where to go exactly to eat at Tsukiji Market. BUT…I did take pictures which I know will help. The first spot – I’m not even sure what we were eating but it was kind of like the Japanese version of a Philly cheesesteak on rice minus the cheese. Amazing!!!!!!! We got there fairly early and by the time we left there was a long line so it must be “the place”. Our second stop – fresh tuna. Need I say more?! You get to choose how fatty you want your tuna – lean, medium fatty or fatty. I chose to go middle of the road and it was delicious. Third – dried fruit. I’m not even sure what we bought but they had samples and they were sweet but subtle. The kind of mysterious snack where you keep eating it because you want to figure it out but can’t.
I suggest going early in the morning (by early I mean 8:30-9am) and just wander. Get lost, turn left, turn right, just explore and have fun. I promise you won’t have a bad experience and if anything you’ll wish you had more time.
