It is the most famous of over ten wholesale markets that handle the distribution of food and flowers in Tokyo. Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world’s largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day.Instead of visiting the inner market, tourists are encouraged to visit Tsukiji’s outer market, which is located just adjacent to the inner market and caters to the public. The outer market consists of a few blocks of small retail shops and restaurants crowded along narrow lanes. Here you can find all sorts of food related goods, knives and fresh seafood and produce for sale in smaller (than wholesale) portions.A visit to Tsukiji Market is best combined with a fresh sushi breakfast or lunch at one of the local restaurants. There are restaurants both in the inner and outer market area, which are typically open from 5:00 in the morning to around 2pm.Directions:Tsukiji Market is just above Tsukiji Shijo Station on the Oedo Subway Line.

六厘舎, Rokurinsha

This ramen store in Tokyo station serves arguably the best Tsukemen (Dipping noodles) in Tokyo. Tsukemen is a style of ramen that has become increasingly popular, particularly during the summer, as many find it more refreshing than regular ramen. The noodles are served either cold and warm and you can dip them in the broth before you slurp on.  

You can go for either the Ajitama Tsukemen (950 yen)—Rokurinsha’s original ramen with a flavored, boiled egg OR the  “special recommendation” of Tokusei Tsukemen (1,050 yen) which comes with the addition of buta hogushi (shredded pork). 

Address and website:

1-9-1 Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo, Japan (Tokyo Station Ichibangai Basement Floor, B1F Yaesu South Exit) (map) (81) 03-3286-0166; rokurinsha.com

東池袋大勝軒 Taishoken in Higashi-Ikebukuro

This ramen store serves the most traditional and best Tsukemen in Tokyo, It was formerly run by Taishoken founder, Kazuo Yamagishi (who passed away in April 2015) and located near the Higashi-Ikebukuro metro station. He was known as the inventor of Tsukemen as well as ‘godfather of the Tokyo ramen scene’. Try the Morisoba (¥700) where   noodles are served with a  seafood, pork, chicken broth and a boiled egg. The portions here are very generous for the price they are charging.   The regular ramen (‘Chuka Soba’, ¥700) is popular as well.
