In this short video, we checked out the Tuna Auction, where we had to deal with crazy 50 mile per hour storm while avoiding getting ran over by the zipping little Turret Trucks during our tour in Tsukiji inner markets. That was not fun at all... We had to make sure our camera gear did not get wet. Right after, we probably ate one best breakfast we've ever had, at one of the oldest restaurants in Tsukiji, called Kaisendon Oedo! It first opened in 1885 and the restaurant has been passed down by the same family since then! You'll see the owner in the video, old lady wearing a yellow jacket, hovering around the entrance making sure everything is clean and tidy.
Tsukiji Market (築地市場, Tsukiji Shijō) is a large wholesale market for fish, fruits and vegetables in central Tokyo.  Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.

Visiting the tuna auction

The number of visitors to the tuna auction is limited to 120 per day, the maximum number which the market's infrastructure can accommodate. Tourists, who wish to see the auction, have to apply at the Osakana Fukyu Center (Fish Information Center) at the Kachidoki Gate, starting from 5:00am (or earlier on busy days) on a first-come, first-serve basis. A first group of 60 visitors will be admitted to the auction between 5:25 and 5:50, while a second group of 60 visitors will be admitted between 5:50 and 6:15.


Visitors usually start lining up hours before 5am, and the maximum number is likely to be exceeded, in which case later arriving visitors will not be able to see the auction. Successful applicants will be able to view the auction from a designated visitor area. It is not allowed to view the auction from anywhere else or to use flash photography or to interfere with the business action in any other way.
