20 of the Best Things to Do in Toyosu

Lately, Toyosu is getting a lot of attention because it will hold several venues for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, including the Athlete’s Village.

In this guide, we’ll show you the top 20 spots in the area, including family-friendly leisure facilities and the Toyosu Fish Market, which moved from Tsukiji last year.

    The teamLab Planets museum is a completely new experience. Guests will first remove their socks and shoes before entering the museum, since “immersive” in this case means you’ll be moving through water. At its deepest point it’s only about 30 cm. You can borrow shorts if you need to. Towels are also provided to wipe down your feet afterwards, so no preparation necessary there.

    The teamLab Planets museum opened in the summer of 2018, and have plans to stay open for at least 2 years. You might want to check it out some time before then, on the off chance they close it.

    Toyosu Market

    The famous Tsukiji Fish Market moved to Toyosu in 2018, and it’s fully prepared to welcome those looking for the fabled Tuna Auction.

    Now there’s a viewing deck to the auction site, so you can observe the rows of fresh tuna and the bidders buying them from a great vantage point without worrying about getting the way. You will want to get there before 5 a.m. to guarantee your spot though.

    Those looking for a taste of the market should head over to Sushi Dai. It’s both affordable and amazing, but there will be a long line as early as 6:30 a.m.

    Nakaya is the front-runner in seafood bowls, and it has less of a wait than Sushi Dai. You can fill up and head out.

    Toyosu was home to many shipbuilding factories in the Showa period. As a testament to this history, a lot of the equipment from that time is now being used as monuments across the area.

    The Monument Crane is a towering permanent fixture in the LaLaport area. At night, it’s beautifully lit for some great pictures. There’s a yellow Crane Counterweight (omori) that’s now also being used as a circular bench in Toyosu Park.

    In the park you can also have a seat between the Wheels of an Open Railcar, or sharin, that was used to carry supplies. A Light Anchor now sits proudly in front of Foresia, painted blue with holes drilled in a pattern to make it lighter.

    About an 8-minute walk from Toyosu Station is Hide Coffee Beans Store. This is one of Toyosu’s rare third wave coffee shop. The shop is a remodeled warehouse that mainly sells coffee beans, but there’s also a cafe inside.

    A cup of their drip coffee is 380 yen, and you can get it to-go as well. But the cafe’s vaulted ceilings and low-key atmosphere make for an easy spot to take a load off.
