The best time to visit and eat and drink is on “Wednesday Opening Day”.
There are many sushi restaurants in Toyosu Market, and all of them are popular, so you may not be able to get in even if you went all the way there.
However, there is one day when the market is usually crowded, but not so crowded that you can’t get in. That is the opening day of the market on Wednesdays.
Many people think that Wednesdays are closed, so restaurants are relatively empty.
On Saturdays, the restaurant area is crowded and popular sushi restaurants have long lines, so if you aim for this day, you may be able to enjoy gourmet food at the Toyosu Market smoothly.
On Wednesdays, restaurants, supermarkets, and other retailers often take a break from delivering goods from the market to their stores, so there are fewer visitors to stock up.
If you aim for the market opening day on Wednesday, both the food and the tour will go smoothly!
