Toyosu Market (豊洲市場, Toyosu Shijō) is scheduled to open on October 11, 2018 on the man-made island of Toyosu in the Bay of Tokyo. It will take over the business from the aging Tsukiji Market and provide tourists with an opportunity to observe the market action and to dine at restaurants across its large, modern premises.
The huge wholesale market consists of three main buildings: two buildings for seafood and one for fruits and vegetables. All buildings are connected with each other and Shijo-mae Station via elevated walkways, and tourists can enter them along dedicated routes and view the action from observation decks that look onto the auction and wholesale halls for tuna, other seafood and produce.
Several restaurants can be found in multiple locations across the market, many of which serve fresh seafood and produce directly from the market. There is also a collection of shops, named Uogashi Yokocho, open to the public where non-perishable industry goods like knives and apparel are sold. The wholesale section; however, is off-limits to tourists.
On the roof of the seafood wholesale building sits a spacious and pleasant rooftop garden that is open to the public and faces the bay. A facility for additional shopping and dining, as well as for a public bath and hotel is planned to be added to the complex in the future.
Toyosu Market surrounds Shijo-mae Station on the Yurikamome. The Yurikamome is an automated, elevated train with rubber tires which connects Shimbashi Station on the JR Yamanote Line via Odaiba with Toyosu Station.
