Tour the Toyosu Market

Step inside this established fish market in Tokyo, Japan

By Google Arts & Culture

Toyosu Market opened its doors in October 2018 and has established itself in the metropolitan area, replacing the Tsukiji Market. The market's biggest feature is that it can protect products from the effects of outside weather and can maintain the freshness of the fish. It also not only offers easy distribution and stable pricing across the variety of fresh food products that were traded in Tsukiji Market, but the market meets the high expectation of modern consumers for food safety. Step inside the market and explore for yourself...

Welcome to the market

Toyosu market is split into three areas depending on the products being sold: the Seafood Wholesale Market Building, the Seafood Intermediate Wholesale Building, and the Fruits and Vegetables Building.
