Yokohama City Central Wholesale Market

The Yokohama City Central Wholesale Market is the base for the distribution of fresh seafood that supports Japanese food culture. It was established in 1931, the third in Japan.

Usually only authorized personnel can enter the market, however, it also offers tours that allow visitors to observe auctions up close and personal, and to taste and purchase fresh seafood.

On this tour, you can look around the market's unique facilities, such as a minus 50 degree Celsius tuna freezer, which is normally inaccessible, and a live fish tank for stocking fresh, live fish.

You can also view the mouth-watering variety of seafood right in front of you, and even eat it for breakfast.
