築地場外市場のご案内は、車いすユーザーの私、YUKORINがいたしましょう。場内市場は豊洲へ移転しても、場外市場は今後も営業します。

Hi! I’m YUKORIN, a wheelchair user. I will show you around the Tsukiji Outer Market. The outer marker is open even after the Tsukiji Inner Market was moved to the Toyosu Market.

偶然にも、場内市場の最終日にバリアフリー調査をした私たち。歴史的な日だけあって場外市場はすごい混雑でした。

We coincidentally carried out our wheelchair accessibility review on the very day when the Tsukiji Inner Market was closed for its move. This place was extremely crowded as it was a historic day.

人混みを縫っていくと築地魚河岸という大きな建物に到着しました。ここはバリアフリーの設備が整っていそう。入ってみましょう!

We arrived at a big market building named Tsukiji Uogashi after we threaded our way through the crowd. This building seems wheelchair accessible. Let's go in!

1階は生鮮市場になっていて、お魚屋さんを中心に、いろいろな生鮮食品のお店がありました。

The fresh food market is located on the 1st floor. There are mainly seafood shops and also a variety of other fresh food shops.

さすが市場。屋内でも小型運搬車が通過します。乗り物にはご注意を~!
It is a real marketplace. A small vehicle which carries food and goods sometimes passes through the inside of the building. Be careful of such vehicles even when you are in the building.

このエレベーターで最上階の3階に上がってきました。エレベーターの大きさは車いす1台と3~4人が乗れるくらいです。
We took this elevator up to the 3rd floor which is the top floor. It accommodates up to 1 wheelchair and 3 or 4 people.

3階にはフードコートがあります。ここで昼食にしようと思ったけれど、それぞれのお店のブースが狭く、この混み様では車いすは入れそうにありません・・・。店員さんのお話によれば、土日のお昼時はかなり混むようです。

There is a food court on the 3rd floor. Although I wanted to have lunch here, each booth was too small and crowded for my wheelchair to enter. According to a salesclerk, it is that crowded at lunch time on Saturdays and Sundays.

3階には屋上広場もあります。ここなら広くて安心。広いところでお食事したい車いすユーザーの方は、何か食べ物を買ってきて、ここで頂いてもいいですね。

There is also the Rooftop Plaza on the 3rd floor. I found it spacious and safe. If a wheelchair user were to have a meal at a spacious place, I can recommend you to buy something to eat somewhere and then enjoy it here.

「せっかくの築地市場のブログなのに・・・」という読者さんのために、メンバーのランチの写真を拝借します。海鮮丼、おいしそう ♪

Some readers might miss some food photos in spite of my writing the blog post on Tsukiji Market. I put a photo of a lunch one of our members enjoyed. The seafood rice bowl looks delicious!

さて、お話を屋上広場の場面に戻します。ヘルパーさんによると、このドアーが非常に重く、開けて押さえておくのが大変だったそうです。自走式の車いすの方は、ここを通るとき、どなたかにドアーを押さえてもらうといいかもしれません。

Let me get back to the scene of the Rooftop Plaza. My attendant said this door was very heavy. She found the door a little hard to open and hold it open while pushing my wheelchair. Manual wheelchair users might want to ask someone to hold it open to pass through here.

1階に下り、出入口付近にあった多目的トイレを利用しました。「市場のお手洗いだから、そんなにきれいじゃないないかも・・・」と心配していましたが、想像していたより清潔でした。それに適当な広さで、私に必要な設備が整っていたことにも一安心でした。なお、築地魚河岸には多目的トイレが2か所あり、小田原橋棟の出入口付近に1つ、そして海幸橋棟の出入口付近に1つとなっています。

When we went down to the 1st floor, I used a multipurpose restroom near the entrance. I had imagined that restrooms in the marketplace would not be so clean. But this restroom was cleaner than my imagination. To my relief, it was also appropriately spacious and well-equipped enough to meet my needs. Two restrooms are located at Tsukiji Uogashi, one near the entrance of the Odawara-bashi building and the other near the entrance of the Kaikou-bashi building respectively.

建物を出て、場外市場の散策です。道が迷路のように複雑で、メンバーの誘導がなければ迷子になりそうでした。しかも、細い路地で人通りの激しいところが多々あるため、車いすユーザーの方は人にぶつからないようにお気を付けくださいね。

Getting out of the building, we took a walk around the outer market. The streets are so complicated like a maze. I would have surely lost my way without our members' guide. Besides, there are many narrow and busy streets. Wheelchair users have to take care not to bump into others.

でも、様々な飲食店や食べ物を売るお店があって、賑やかな光景を見ているだけでも楽しかったです。築地市場が“日本の台所”と呼ばれる理由がよくわかります。

However, I enjoyed just watching the busy landscape where a lot of lively people went in and out many different restaurants and shopped around various food shops. I could see why the Tsukiji Market is called the "Kitchen of Japan".

こうして、私たちは築地場外市場の調査を終え、次の目的地である築地本願寺へ向かったのでした。
We completed our wheelchair accessibility review at the Tsukiji Outer Market in an enjoyable way. And then we headed for Tsukiji Honganji Buddhist Temple that was our next destination.

なるべく安全路線を選ぶ私は、混雑しているお店でのお食事はご遠慮しましたが、「お店が狭くて混んでいても平気!」という車いすユーザーの方は場外市場でのお食事を挑戦してみてください。地上階で営業しているお店が多かったので、階段の心配はそれほどないと思います。もともと市場というのは人が多くて活気に満ちているもの。この独特な雰囲気が多くの外国人観光客を惹き付けているのかもしれません。あなたも築地場外市場に訪れてみてはいかがでしょう。五感で日本の食文化を堪能できますよ。

I avoided lunch at a crowded restaurant on the day since I choose as safer a way as possible. However, wheelchair users that might think "I don't mind if I have meals at crowded and small restaurants", why don't you try meals at the Tsukiji Outer Market? There are many restaurants at the ground level. You don't have to be concerned much about stairs. Markets are very lively and congested with people in the first place. This unique ambience might attract a lot of tourists from overseas. Can I tempt you to visit the Tsukiji Outer Market? You will enjoy Japanese food culture through your five senses, I can assure you.
