The morning of Tsukiji fish market begins very early.

 

Many of shops in inner market begin to do business mostly after 6 am and many of shops in outer market begin to do business mostly after 10 am.

Please note that it will be crowded after 7 am in inner market and after 10 am in outer market.

So, it is always good to get up early and visit right after 6 am so that you can enjoy going sightseeing much easier.
