I want to ask about the Tsukiji Outer Market. It will be my first time in Tokyo and although I have checked several sources , some questions cannot be answered.
According to youtube, www.japan-guide.com and other sources: In Tsukiji Outer Market and near it there are several small shops/restaurants offering seafood, fish and other items that can be consumed on the spot. Tsukiji also seems to have a variety of food stores.
Also it seems that Tsukiji Outer Market is closed during holidays and 31 December to 3 January.
Do all these shops/restaurants belong to the "Tsukiji Outer Market" ? Will all these shops/restaurants be definitively closed or can some one find such shops/restaurants that are open 31 December to 3 January?
Is there any similar experience in Tokyo available 31 December to 3 January?
