However, we must not forget that Tsukiji fish market is a work place for many professionals, though it is an interesting tourist attraction.? Just walking around and taking pictures might block their communication, or damage the fish.

The fun of Tsukiji fish market is not just watching the huge tuna fish and the?auctions.? There are many places where you can eat the fish which were bidded in the early morning.
In the numerous?Sushi restaurants , you can eat fish which were brought to dry land only?a few hours ago!? But remember, all restaurants are always?crowded, especially?in the early morning and around noon, so this dining won’t be very elegant.? Well, being jolsted in the crowd is the pleasure of Tsukiji.

If you would like to share the joy of the fish markets with your friends, there are?shops selling both fresh and manufactured food.
