Toyosu Market (豊洲市場, Toyosu Shijō) opened in October 2018 on the man-made island of Toyosu in the Bay of Tokyo. It took over the wholesale business from the aging Tsukiji Market and provides 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 walkways, and tourists can enter them along dedicated routes and view the action from observation windows that look onto the auction and wholesale halls for tuna, other seafood and produce.
Fish Wholesale Market Building
This is the building where the tuna auctions take place between around 5:30 and 6:30 in the mornings. It consists of two main halls: the hall for tuna auctions and the hall where seafood other than tuna is auctioned. For tourists, the building complex houses a small restaurant area and many windows and an observation deck to view the auctions:
Fish Intermediate Wholesale Market Building
This is the building where the many wholesale businesses have their shops and sell seafood to licensed buyers. The wholesale market is off-limit to regular visitors, however the building offers tourists several attractions on its upper floors:
Fruit and Vegetable Market Building
This building combines the auction hall and the wholesale market for fresh fruits and vegetables. Visitors are able to observe the action from windows on the upper floor. A small cluster of restaurants is, furthermore, located, near the entrance of the building:
A facility for additional shopping and dining, as well as for a public bath and hotel is scheduled to be added to the complex by spring 2023. Until then, it is not possible for the general public to purchase fresh seafood at Toyosu Market (other than by dining at a restaurant). Those interested in purchasing fresh seafood should head to the Tsukiji Outer Market where several wholesale businesses continue to maintain a second shop.
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. The waterfront area of Tokyo is also one of the city's few areas where access by bus can be worth considering.
