The Tsukiji Fish Market gets real busy during the weekdays especially in the morning. It is located 5 minutes away from Tsukiji Station. There is another market (wholesale) close to Tsukijishijo Station. Another landmark worth visiting nearby is the Tsukiji Hongan-ji temple, of somewhat middle-eastern style.
