Tsukiji Outer Market
Since the world’s biggest fish market moved from Tsukiji to Toyosu the outer market remains a fascinating place to explore and one of the city’s best street food locations. Soaked in history and with an atmosphere all of its own it is one of Tokyo’s must see sights. The outer markets are packed with stalls selling everything from the freshest fish to grilled eel, rice crackers, vegetables and even kitchenware. A stroll through the alleys is a great and delicious way to start the morning.
Hamarikyu gardens. The famous gardens once the duck hunting ground for the Shogunate during the Edo period are now an oasis of calm nestled amongst the skyscrapers of Shiodome and just a 10 minute walk from Tsukiji fish market. The landscaped gardens with their tidal pools provide the perfect setting for a stroll and a cup of traditional tea at the tea house.
Asakusa. The district of Asakusa part of the Shitamachi (low town) is situated in eastern Tokyo and exudes the atmosphere of yesteryear. Once situated outside of the city limits and a famous redlight and entertainment district in the Edo period, it is now an area known for the famed Senso-ji temple, the Sanja festival, and its shops selling traditional Japanese goods. Hoppy dori located behind Senso-ji temple is a lane packed with small izakaya serving traditional izakaya food, beer and sake.
