Tsukiji Outer Market 築地場外市場
Various wholesalers, kitchen supply stores, retailers and restaurants line this site, the retail or outer market of the world's largest fish and produce market located in the suburb of Tsukiji. Most of the shops at the Tsukiji Outer Market close by early afternoon, particularly the restaurants, and many are closed on Wednesdays. While Tsukiji Market as a whole is planned for relocation to Toyosu after November 2016, about 25 percent of Tsukiji Outer Market's retailers are estimated to stay put.

Super busy, major crowd especially it is a Major fish market operating during the morning time. There is ALOT of delicious food to try. It is a very snacking walk through the market. Here I would suggest carry cash with you especially if your going to buy food. Most things are cheap with the quality food your getting. It is a very large market that would take a nice chunk of your morning and noon eating your way through. Most vendors are nice they would give you samples and they are not cheap with the samples. If you don't like crowds this might not be a place to be but if your traveling with a couple of friends you can send them off to get some food for you. Most are food vendors, some are dried goods and there are a few souvenir shops.
when I went there, the inner market was closed and decided to just find the outer market. some of the stores were closed and some are happily entertaining the tourists.
tip: fall in line where the stall are crowded sure it will be delicious!
I tried the tamagoyaki it was sweet and yummy! for only 100 yen, you can get a stick of egg! also tried the grilled scallops and they were fresh! for only 300 yen you can get 4 pcs. (I ate the first one in the stick because it was about to fall and you don't want a waste food right?). Didn't get a chance to eat sushi donburi beacuse all the open stores have long lines and some are closed.
