A market that comes alive well before dawn, Tsukiji Fish Market is a focal point of activity even before the sun comes up. We visit the Outer Market, through the many bustling shops with items lining market stalls all for restaurants as they prepare fresh ingredients for the day's menu. The market boasts many specialty shops selling seafood and fish eggs as well as kombu (seaweed), dried bonito, groceries, delicacies and more.
Next it’s time for your sushi-making workshop where you can learn how to prepare the perfect roll using seasonal seafood ingredients.
