Great place to visit if you love to eat fresh fish or sushi. Choose from a variety of welcoming shops and restaurants. Fish is also sold in this market but be sure to arrive early as the best fish tends to sell out early in the morning.
Suggested duration: 1-2 hours

The outer market is fantastic. Walk around, stop everywhere, it’s real, with real people, and real seafood. Try everything it is all delicious. Absolutely a Must. Can’t miss it.

Theres a lot of food you can try here. We thought we would be eating sushi but there are so much food that we ended up eating other food than sushi. It is definitely a must to visit!!!

We visited whilst the inner market was closed & transitioning to new premises. The outer market was still a vibrant bustling market with lots to see and taste.

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
