    I have been to Tsukiji market once, but unfortunately the market was closed that day because of Sunday.
    It is disappointing memory.
    So, don`t go to Tsukiji market on Sunday, however even though the market was close, there are nice fresh sushi restaurant around there, so I did enjoy some fresh sushi though.
    Here is info about Tsukiji market, so please check it before you go.

          I've seen it and its worth the train trip, but you have to get up early in the morning and I think now you may have to book to see some areas, as they have limits on the people moving around

          Outer Market: varies by shop, typically 5:00 to 14:00
          Wholesale Area: open to visitors after 9:00am
          Tuna Auction: open to visitors from 5:25am to 6:15am (restricted to 120 visitors/day)

          Sundays, national holidays and some Wednesdays (see "English Links" below).
          The tuna auction gets closed to tourists for a few weeks over New Year (usually from early December to mid January) to ensure a smooth and accident free course of business during that busy time of the year

            Its not as free as it used to be, once you could walk around with your camera a bit and get some excellent shots, but now they restrict access a lot to the main market, but still worth a look for sure.
            It became too popular and they had to restrict access in some areas, after all it is primarily a commercial site
