Markets

The Tsukiji Market, which was popular among foreigners, ended its 83 years of history and moved to Toyosu. Actually, in recent years markets all around Japan have been very popular among foreign tourists. The reason is that markets are a gathering of small shops that are closely related to daily life. You can find rare foods, cuisine, and miscellaneous goods, and you can catch a glimpse of the region’s lifestyle and diet. Above all, the energy from the people gathering attracts foreign tourists. We investigate the appeals of such Japanese markets.
