On October 11, 2018, the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market Toyosu Market, also known as the “Toyosu Market,” finally opened, inheriting the 80-year history of the Tsukiji Market.
In our previous article, we introduced the area of the 6th district, which is located to the right of Shijo-mae Station on the Yurikamome Line.
This time, I would like to take you to the 7th district, the best place to take pictures, and the “Rooftop Greenery Plaza.

The 7th district, where you can visit the auction floor
The closest station to Toyosu Market is Shijo-mae Station on the Yurikamome Line.
Shijo-mae” station used to be a rickety station with few users, but since the opening of the Shijo-mae Market, it has become a bustling place every day.
Go out the ticket gate from “Shijo-mae” station and turn left.
From Shijo-mae Station on the Yurikamome Line, take the passage on the left, which will lead you to the 7th Street viewing corridor. We will guide you here this time.

There are many sushi restaurants. Tsukiji Kagurazushi.
Kimuraya” selling coffee and sandwiches.
This is also a sushi restaurant, “Sushi Restaurant Okame
Yajiman” is a ramen restaurant that was loved by market workers at the Tsukiji Market. The ramen has a relaxing taste.
There are many other stores in the 7th district. It is still crowded, but hopefully you will find one that suits your taste!
Go to the back and you will find the Toyosu Market PR corner. The official character “Itchino” is on display.
Beyond the restaurants is the “Toyosu Market PR Corner. The structure, role, features, and history of the Toyosu Market are explained in detail.
If you read it properly, you will understand the origins and functions of the market. Now that we’ve gone through all that, here’s an exhibit I hope you’ll take a look at!
In the back, there is a figure of tuna? There is a tuna figure in the back of the room. Many people take commemorative photos here. Tuna is cool after all.
Also on display is the Ichiba Fairy “Itchino,” the official yurukyara of the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market!
Overwhelmed by the huge tuna exhibit.
Going to the back of the market, we will finally visit the 7th district where the auction room is located. Let’s proceed to the “Fisheries Wholesale Market Tour Gallery”!
As stated on the signboard in front of the station, you can visit the market from “5:00 am”. As stated on the sign in front of the station, the market is open to visitors from 5:00 a.m. General visitors are not allowed to enter before that time.
Giant tuna exhibit and elaborate miniatures of the Toyosu market
As soon as you enter the Fisheries Wholesale Hall building, you will see a giant tuna exhibit!
Surrounding it are explanations about the different types of tuna and logistics, making the exhibit well worth seeing.
There is also a miniature exhibit of the Toyosu Market, which gives visitors a good idea of the structure and scale of the market. Toyosu Market looks pretty cool as a building!
Tour the state-of-the-art auction house while looking at the history of the past!
Finally, you can visit the tuna auction floor. The tuna auction starts at 5:30 a.m. and lasts until about 6:30 a.m., depending on the amount of tuna arriving. The tuna auction starts at 5:30 a.m. and continues until about 6:30 a.m., depending on the volume of tuna arrivals.
The photo was taken at noon, so there are no tuna in the line, but during the auction time, many large tuna are lined up and it is a spectacular sight.
On either side of the tuna auction area are panel displays showing the history of the transition from the Tsukiji market to the Toyosu market.
Great photo spot! The “Rooftop Greening Plaza” is worth it just to see this.
After visiting the auction house and getting hungry, you should definitely visit the “Rooftop Greenery Plaza.
Take the elevator up to the 5th floor and go to the rooftop, where you will find the “Rooftop Greenery Plaza,” a vast open space surrounded by lawn.
The view from here is truly spectacular!
You can see the whole Toyosu area and the Rainbow Bridge.
It is also a great place to take commemorative photos and portraits. On this day, many tourists were enjoying taking pictures.
Incidentally, you can also go to the rooftop from “Toyosu Gururi Park”.
Toyosu Gururi Park” is a very large park connected to Toyosu Park from Toyosu Station. You can see people running and walking here and there.
Gururi Park has not yet been used by many people, so you can use the large park in a luxurious way.
When I am tired of working at Toyosu Market, I go to this park to relax and enjoy the view of the sea.
Sushi restaurants and seafood bowl restaurants are always crowded, so if you are tired of waiting in line, this is a good place to take a break!
Also, although it is not well known yet, the night view from the rooftop is the best. It will be a great spot for relaxing and taking pictures without too many people!
I have a feeling the Toyosu market is going to get more and more touristy from here on out!
Right now, information about this rooftop facility and the tuna auction house tour is still scarce, and although there are a few people here and there, the sightseeing is still comfortable and enjoyable. (Restaurants such as sushi restaurants are very crowded.)
Toyosu Market is sure to become an even hotter spot in the future, and I highly recommend seeing it while you still can!
