4 Visit the Tsukiji Fish Market before it moves
If you dream of sushi, you’ve probably witnessed the live tuna auctions at the famed Japanese fish market already or have detailed plans on what to eat and do there. Best to hurry up and fly to Tokyo as soon as you can though, as the wholesale market is expected to close and move to a new site in Toyosu – about 2km east from Tsukiji’s current location – in autumn 2018. Before you go, watch the excellent ‘ Tsukiji Wonderland’ documentary, which focuses on the market’s fish experts as well as the before and after of the auction, from the arrival of the fish at the market to it being served to diners.
