Tsukiji Fish Market Part 5 - The Outer Market for food and accessories

After spending a few hours at the temperature-chilled and viscerous tuna auctions and Wholesalers Market, the Outer Market seemed to be a whole world apart. It was certainly a few streets away enough to separate it.

The sunlit, open-air atmosphere of the quieter stall-fronted shops offered some completely different but seemingly complementary products to the fish market.

Stores combined dried foods and snacks with fruit, spices and utensils alongside seafood fare direct from the wholesalers or previously dried to perfection.

If the early morning fish market awakens your senses, then the Outer Market appeals to your appetite. We'd just had our Daiwa Sushi so weren't too susceptible to the curious-looking snacks, but if we were any hungrier, we would have bound to have stopped by at one of the street side cafés along the fringe of the Outer Market, for a portion of ramen.
