They sell pickles in the store. You will be surprised how wide their selection is!

7) Torito

It was after 9am when I walked by. I was surprised there were already piles of people getting fresh chicken!

They sell not only fresh chicken but homemade tandoori chicken, roasted duck, deep-fried chicken thigh, Teriyaki chicken thigh, grilled chicken, etc in the showcase...

The POP says “hugely popular ½ sized deep-fried chicken” ...Then, why not to try!? I’ve never seen this large deep-fried chicken before! I am excited to eat it!!

Look how beautiful it is! It is simply seasoned with soy sauce, but this well balanced chicken and batter are the best thing ever! I understand people love it! Awwww my mouth starts drooling while I write this article~~~!!

  • This chicken wholesale merchant has been in business over 100 years in Tsukiji. Their homemade chickens are delicious! They also have Yakitori (seasoned chicken on skewers) available on Saturdays. The savory flavour attracts you for sure!

Mac More is a cafe in Tsukiji Market.

Even though it is a cafe, they offer various seafood set menus!

  • This cafe is packed with local people (and workers in the market)!

  • Business hours: 08:00-23:00

9) Niku No Yazawa

This is another few of the shops in Tsukiji not related to seafood. Huge blocks of pork, beef, and other meat are lined up in the showcases.

  • Their homemade roasted pork is fantastic!! There are two kinds of roasted pork: shoulder and thigh. Also, their pickled egg is awesome!!
  • Business hours: 05:00-12:00 on Mondays to Fridays and 05:00-13:30 on Saturdays

Marutake’s best selling omelette is only 100 yen for a piece. It can be a good finger snack with you while you are walking around! Enjoy their freshly cooked omelette!

Do you think omelette is not the thing to buy at the store? Try their omelette!

Japanese omelette is called Dashimaki Tamago which has large amount of Dashi (soup stock) and delicately cooked. It is VERY hard to make it at home…

  • Marutake is run by Japanese famous celebrity’s family, and their signature omelette is often on TV.
  • Business hours: 04:00-14:00
  • Closed on Sundays, national holidays, and when Jonai Shijo is closed.

  • Business hours: 06:00-15:00
  • Closed on Sundays and irregular days

I love to go on a trip each season, to stroll markets for finding dainty foods, and to soak in a hot spring more than anything.
