Auction is lot of fun to watch, but you gotta get there early like at 5am. Afterwards, can get fresh sushi breakfast at one of the restaurants next to the market.

I heard that real Tuna is really costly. I came to know that most of the restaurants in Asia put alternatives of Tuna because they can't afford the real breed. Is it true?

Thanks for the quick overview of the market. Not sure when you shot this/when the visit occured but I heard that they have closed the tuna auction area to visitors (tourists). Is that so? Or can we still get in there, minding the rules of course. Appreciate any feedback that can be provided based on any recent visits there.
