Japanese Street Food Tour TSUKIJI FISH MARKET


today we’re going to be trying out some awesome Street food and one of the most popular tourist destinations in Tokyo [Music] hey guys it’s Thursday which means it’s time to once again explore the streets of Tokyo for some delicious food today we’re at world-famous soukichi if you didn’t know already Tsukiji is one of the largest markets in the entire world when people here to qiji they usually think about the tuna auctions that happen early in the morning they happen in the inner market for the casual visitor who are more interested in trying out the street foods you want to go to the outer market and that’s exactly what we’re gonna be doing today if you’re new to this channel and you enjoy videos like this one don’t forget to subscribe and make sure to press that Bell icon to be notified every time we release a new video let’s get started first we bought at unagi fishing Tello they are selling a seafood on stick just 200 yen or 1 stick and I bought carob so it was great very beautiful Yaya’s the body is very soft and outside ear pod is critically toe crispy and soy sauce tastes really nice unagi is super expensive here in Japan but this is 200 yen for this Nagi I mean you can’t get it this cheap anywhere else really anyway I’m hoping it’s good thank you awesome hmm oh okay that’s actually not bad for some reason I was expecting it to be a bit dry because it is after all only 200 yen but it’s actually not bad for this price mmm that wanagi or eel is a little bit fatty which is actually nice it has to be fatty there’s nothing worse than like a dry munagi but the dragon Aki’s even exists I’m happy this is a great start to a food tour if it’s called the model cozy again deep-fried Kong and fish cake the inside is a fish cake with calm and it’s deep-fried this is a problem as you know Hamato it’s a shop ready said this is a number one popular stuff mmm it’s sweeter than I expected it’s a taste of a calm fish cake it’s like kamaboko really tasty this shop has been in operation for over 80 years so they’ve been around so they know what they’re doing okay I didn’t expect to taste this good this is deep-fried fish cake but it’s not that really I’ve actually never had corn fish cake before I’m a huge fan now I think good stuff the next that we came to die Sara it’s a very nice egg omelet shop both of these omelets are 120 yen hot and cold let me cut into this this is the Hot Tamale like you guys okay it’s super super fluffy super fluffy check that out hey don’t like you off hmm that was good this is a really pleasant sweetness the egg is super fluffy so here’s a cold one and immediately I can tell that it’s not as soft oh it’s absolutely different from the hot one it’s interesting how different they are in texture and taste this one is also a little bit sweet but it also has a dashi taste whereas the regular hot one doesn’t have any dashi flavor it’s just kind of like a sweet omelette which is actually delicious and I actually prefer that one we’ve got a lot more to eat let’s go to the next place next stop is Sookie Ben where they specialize in the analysis sheet but not just any old analysis sheet this is secret top in an easy shape this is the one I got I got the analysis sheet with crabmeat and salmon roe hakuna crabmeat and Samurai CUDA on top of Inari by the way that is a deep-fried tofu pouches just in case you guys didn’t know please go for 500 yen they do have other toppings such as uni sea urchin but I’m not really a fan of sea urchin so I’m gonna go to the crab in that you grab the crab meat is so fresh and juicy so much juice was dripping down my chin right now I actually don’t want to give Satoshi any of this it’s so good alright I’ll save you I’m gonna save you some mmm so juicy yep seafood Arriba the club me Trevor really nice let’s go to the next place the next McGraw no miako seafood agree justice 1000 yen tuna seocheon club and inside maybe scallop it it’s just grilled in front of us the char grilled on the surface sea urchin I love sea urchin no grave of all naturally greedy with the soy sauce that is true I’m very the tuna that has so much flavor the seafood super super fresh so you don’t really need to add too many seasonings they think like just the right amount of saltiness it’s not too soy sauce or anything oh oh and it’s tuna super super meaty okay here we go look at that check it out guys oh that is so good I love crab oh my god that’s so good if Lisa’s suka shorten they are famous for their shoe mine which are Chinese dumplings I know we’re here to eat seafood but we’re eating pork and chicken but I heard these are good so we had to try them out this is the pork this is the pork shumai and this is made with Kagoshima pork so it’s supposed to be very very special oh this ship might actually taste so much more flavorful than the shu mai that i buy at my neighborhood store it’s really really moist and soft on the inside there’s almost some like no vegetables in here I think it’s just pork and I don’t know what else they use but it’s really good this is the chicken streamer I’ve never had chicken Streamlight before chicken shumai it’s kind of unusual oh I actually like this chicken one I think this one is favored with a little bit of ginger so it has a little bit of kick a totally different flavor from the pork one and because this chicken is a lot lighter and less fatty the chicken one is 90 yen the Park one is 110 yen so they’re actually very reasonably priced and especially when they are this good definitely worth it this is from a shop cut he zoomy they were cooking these up on the on the street and there’s no way I can resist this Oh food me this is actually fish cake it’s fish cake but it does have the favor of crab they got some mustard here so I’m gonna like dip my imitation crab fish cake into a little bit mustard oh yeah that mustard that’s a nice little kick to do some fresh flavored fish paper oh no bad this gravich cake really fluffy and capable no we were walking down this small alleyway in between the streets or we found this really nice and quaint shop that sells fish burgers called fish burger masa they were right in front of us what I thought was a bowl of miso soup it was actually a pot of ginger ale he was actually making fresh ginger ale right in front of us so of course I had to get myself ginger ale I mean I’ve never seen ginger ale made right in front of me like that and then we got a ton of burger which translates to called burger and this is 500 yen and it’s so cool because he makes everything fresh I mean right in front of you he actually battered the fish in front of us he deep-fried it and then I mean everything was just fresh so I’m just impressed well that is a good fish burger the outside is so crispy the inside is so piping hot and flaky the fish is so fresh there’s no fish penis whatsoever there’s a slice of cheese that’s melted on top of the fish there’s shredded cabbage as well and the bun is a very specially made bun he’s a ginger ale oh oh that’s that is so refreshing it’s so refreshing Wow and so much ginger check it out I mean look at the ginger look at all that fresh ginger right inside that’s amazing basic chop is called Naruto’s CSUN press in the 500 en that larger size they have also smaller side is 160 M that the shop owner said it is very good as it is so if you don’t really like oyster so please add lemon juice OSE good in Japan we said we call this oyster sea milk it’s like a milk it’s so totally smooth I got all sweetness so good I get over there all right we got the menchi-katsu from a shop called yoshizawa shorten they are famous for their men cheek cutlets and it’s made with a hundred percent Matsuzaka beef which is one of the top three Wagyu beefs here in Japan and we had to wait for a while because they were sold out and they keep selling like hotcakes all day long that’s how popular these are hi oh wow this is incredibly juicy it’s so juicy has so much beef flavor it’s it’s like it’s not like the beef that I’m used to eating is so much flavor in here it’s so simple all it is is ground up Matsuzaka beef is rolling some panko breadcrumbs and then it’s deep-fried that’s all it is but it’s wonderful I told you it’s crazy isn’t it oh so juicy mmm so much you so much umami over beef hmm isn’t this like the juiciest menchi-katsu ever I need one more no we got more to eat let’s go to the next place okay let’s go to the next place the shop name is margarita Croghan you guys are probably saying finally you guys are eating tuna I know it took us a while but you know there’s just so much food that’s you know like trying to catch our attention anyway we’re finally having tuna this is the two total which is the medium fatty tuna and the reason why we chose a medium fatty tuna is because the fatty tuna which is all Toro we both don’t really care for all Toro it’s a bit too fatty for our taste but if you like fatty taste please go for it because I heard it’s really good I’m gonna eat it with a little wasabi I’m gonna have it with a little bit of rice like that and see what it tastes like mmm wow that is so fresh it is one of the freshest tuna I’ve had this is definitely worth the 1500 yen it’s a pretty small bowl but they actually give you quite a few pieces of tuna in this bowl I wish my mother was here right now she loves to know so much I wish you were here so I could give you a taste of this mom you would love this check this out check this on the key out guys look at this gigantic rice ball with a shrimp tempura inside this is from a place called mother toil and all these sell are rice balls Japanese rice balls called onigiri and because this is Tsukiji they have fillings such as this shrimp tempura they have clams they have oysters salmon and all type of fish for fillings had to get one of this to try it let’s give it a go thank you mas where do I start the tail or this part I’m afraid I might just have rice on this side mmm-hmm good rice with the tempura sauce I didn’t get any of the shrimp yet mmm there you go I just bit into the shrimp that is a pretty big sized shrimp I was kind of surprised because this was actually only 220 yen that’s pretty cheap for a rice ball with a big shrimp inside this is the yummy this would be perfect if you’re really really hungry yeah I think two of these would like to fill you up right away hmm pretty good last but not least is this thing right here this is from a shop cuts a Nokia and they serve these tuna pastries that’s right you’re not gonna find savory tuna in here but I think it’ll find something like red beans or something that’s what I think this is like a tuna version of the famous taiyaki that you find all over the city but as this is Tsukiji they got to do things a little bit differently oh wow oh my god okay that’s a lot of uncle in there uncle is sweetened red bean paste and this is the the bumpy type where there are some actual whole beans inside okay and then the outside is like kind of crispy and kind of like a pancake batter I guess by the way this is called the chew total yaki which means medium fatty tuna whatever this is like us hmm it tastes just like a taiyaki no difference guys no difference from a taiyaki the only difference is the shape the shape is in the shape of a tuna and that’s the only difference the beans are really good it’s not super sweet so it’s the perfect way to end a meal it’s okay it’s okay it’s okay it’s not bad guys this is a perfect dessert but that’s only if you like Azuki beans goodness gracious great balls of fire I can’t believe we ate so much food today I am so sleepy now what was your favorite thing that you ate today Satoshi the fish ball game oh yeah the fish burger that was good you know I pretty much forgot what I ain’t because we had so much food today how many islands do we eat today 13 iTune 13 13 13 happy no wonder I’m ready to fall asleep you know I gotta say the one thing that stood out for me is definitely that fish burger that we had I really like that that was a discovery we weren’t planning to do that one I gotta say they’re my favorite of everything we had today with the exception of that fish burger was that annatee that Inari sushi with the crab meat on top that was the bomb I could go for another one right now I know III can’t know again anyway thank you so so much for joining us on this epic street food tour of Tsukiji please let us know your favorites in the comments down below and you’re gonna see more videos like this one please let us know that in the comments down as well the email marketer will close this October but the out up market will remain yes so no worries you can always come here for

  1. you can put a long needle several well maybe three next to each other an ark between on outside of hull put it's feed back into a computer to see while invisable

  2. Great video guys as always 😄 I did chuckle at the imatation crab stick and Satoshi says "Mmmm….mmm…mmmm…mhmmm!!" Translation "This fish cake goes really well with this Asahi beer…highly reccommend!!" 🤣

  3. I prefer chuutoro over ootoro too … not that ootoro is bad, but I think the natural tuna taste is more present within chuutoro tuna, and ootoro is just a bit too fatty in taste 🙂

  4. Tsukiji fish market looks amazing! So much to eat! Adding it to my bucket list. I could really go for one of those Tara fish burgers right now! 😋 Thanks for another great video!

  5. It all looks so gooooood!! And thank you for including the info that the outer market will remain, after the fish market move! But, does that mean it’s only the Tina auction, that’s moving?

  6. For anyone going, please do try the beef organ stew rice bowl at the very outer row of Tsukiji. No gamey taste at all. Just pure bliss. I have always been afraid of eating organs but that was just a bowl of deliciousness. I wouldn’t even have guessed it’s organs if no one told me! 🤤

  7. For people that worry that tsukiji outer market will move out, I read that the outer market which is the location for shops and restaurant won't move out. Only the inner market that will move out. Here is the news link, https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2018/09/04/national/tsukiji-outer-market-begins-campaign-tell-people-staying-put/

  8. I heard that the fish market is going to close on oct 6, 2018 and move to the new location. Will you do an update on the new place?? Want to find good food there this Christmas. Thanks

  9. Love your vids! A bit sad they are moving before I was able to visit. Going to try the new location when I head out there in May.

  10. WOW, that Crab filled Inari looks super good! The Shrimp Tempura Musubi also looks mouthwatering, especially after you said the rice was moistened by the Tempura Sauce. Great video.

    I wonder how the new fish auction place will turn out. So sad that this market is shutting down this week and reopening at the new site at the end of this week.

  11. Wow, hello from the Philippines you make me very hungry, it looks like very very yummy,, I wish some day I can visit your country and eat the food your eating,

  12. I could literally make a quick vacation to Japan for like 4 days, visit that fish market and all its food vendors stalls anbe happy and go back home to the USA knowing I did a full culinary tour of Japan. that would be an ideal realistic vacation and worth it !!

  13. うわ、美味そう。
    東京都に生まれ、住みながらも、今日まで1回も築地地区は訪れた事が無く、しかも訪れた事が無いまま場内市場は移転してしまったけれども、この動画を見て、是非とも残った場外市場の食べ歩きをしてみたいなと思った(^_^)b。それにしても食う量が凄い。

  14. せっかく良い動画作ってるのにクチャラーはあかんわ。
    クチャクチャ直して

  15. So Shinichi or Satoshi, I have a question….did most of these food market places you visited in the video of the outer market move to the new market location in Toyosu? I visit Japan often and I haven't been back in a year now and will return in April and wonder if the new market is worth a visit? Thx for the great review of the old outer market!

  16. went to Tsukiji today, follow all your recommendation and it is amazing. 
    but was not able to find the fish burger, i roamed all the streets. hope next time you can share the location too. even your nakano video cannot find the nikuman so i went home sad. 🙁

  17. every video of yours makes me want to visit Japan just to eat food. I especially loved the fish burger / ginger ale place!

  18. Hey Shinichi and Satoshi, I have a video request for you if you're feeling adventurous!
    Every year, in Serbia, they have an annual grill festival in Leskovac. I plan to visit there someday to try out the food. I'd love to see you sample the different meats and cheeses. It's a bit of a trip but it would be a treat to see you do a Street Food Tour in a European country!

  19. Could you please update where they (the market) has moved to? I’ve already subscribed your channel Love you content. Great job guys

  20. We went there just a month before you shot this video. So much good food. Thanks for bringing back those happy memories. Wish we could have eaten as much as you did that day.

  21. Thank you so much for eating (so much) for us! The following is just a note for myself since I'm planning a visit to Tokyo soon, with locations on Google Maps. Maybe these will come in handy for anyone else?

  22. I love sushi, catch it, fillet it, salt and lemon or not, tear it up.  what you ate in this video looks bloody awesome, fantastic,  i'm drowning in my own juices.  I, personally, would like to see more seafood videos.

  23. My favorite giveaway that Satoshi likes something is how much he moves around while eating lol it's so cute!

  24. Mmm, I definitely need to try that fish burger when we're in Tokyo again! I didn't see that during our visit a couple months ago.

  25. You ate alot! Food coma ensues from eating n then falling asleep, great video as always! Thank you for making them, someday I hope to go to Japan too and eat like that!

  26. Hi I love your channel.
    I have a question about tsukiji.
    I’m planning a trip to Tokyo this summer and wanted to got to tsukiji for some street food.
    Would it be best to go to the old market area or the newer market?

  27. After tasting the amazing food in Japan, now, even when I travel in the US, I'm always looking for a good Japanese restaurant. Thanks for sharing!
