Tsukiji market was quite different from Nishiki market in Kyoto. It had a lot more food that could be eaten right away, and there were many more tourists. They even had an information center with resting area. I didn’t eat that much because I was going to eat at the airport.
Fried corn stick – JPY 320 (~ USD 3)
The line was very long so I joined it and ordered whatever that looked popular. It was slightly sweet and crunchy. It was good but overpriced.
Swordfish skewer – JPY 200 (~ USD 2)
It was alright. Mostly sugar and soy sauce flavour.
Tamagoyaki – JPY 100 (~ USD 1)
Sweet, but the texture was a little rough compared to the one from Nishiki market.
There were lots of interesting looking food and some looked really fancy and expensive. I would recommend bringing enough cash if you intend on having enough for a meal here.
It was very crowded and touristy overall, but there were lots of great-looking food. It might be a challenge for a family with small children or people with accessibility issues. I’m a little skeptical about the food quality here since most things looked overpriced, but it was fun to walk around.
