  • Duration
    2~3 hours

Many assume that the auctions held at big-city markets like Toyosu (prev Tsukiji) in Tokyo are the heart of Japan's seafood trade, but this is actually the second time the giant tuna have been sold to market! The true heart of the action actually occurs a day earlier at Shiogama City Fish Market, the home of the largest catch of fresh tuna in all of Japan. 

Experience the action for yourself with this rare chance to view the auction up-close from the market floor itself, guided by a local tuna wholesaler. This area is usually completely off-limits to the public (who can view from the closed-off gallery) - only on this tour will you gain special permission to enter the market as if you were a local wholesaler yourself! 

The auction is also famous for being the fastest in Japan, with the action over and done with in around 30 minutes! Watch in awe as the pack of wholesalers moves down the lines and lines of giant tuna at a crazy pace, calling out unintelligible prices and bids as they go. 

After the auction, retreat to the onsite seafood restaurant where you'll have the chance to carve-up one of the massive tuna bought at the same auction. Use the fresh sashimi to make your own nigiri-sushi and devour it for breakfast, alon
