Tsukiji Market opened as the central wholesale fish market of Tokyo in 1935. It has since attracted many people as the “kitchen of Tokyo.” All shops in the Outer Market cater to professional chefs, specialising in ingredients that range from fish, shellfish, and dried roe, artisanal drinks, bonito flakes, dried foods, and other delicacies. Apart from many food stall, the market also sells professional cooking utensils and knives used at restaurants—seldom carried at general kitchenware stores—which are perfect as souvenirs. 
Originally Tsukiji Market used to be the wholesale market for the professionals. That is why items sold there were generally too big for a small family to buy. However, some of the wholesale shops in the market have started retailing high-end merchandises for ordinary customers. For example, ready-to-eat omelets for sushi are now sold in smaller sizes. Even a bite-sized egg roll can be had for those who just want to try it. Tsukiji Market, primarily catering to the professionals, has recently opened its doors to ordinary customers and visitors.

Most tourist come for the variety of fresh sushi/sashimi breakfast.
