Photographer's Note

This photograph is taken at the Chōshi fishing port which is on the northeast part of Chiba Prefecture in autumn of six years ago. Choshi is a town facing the Pacific Ocean which is in 100km within the circle from Tokyo, and is located in the easternmost tip in Kanto Plain. As main industries, it is the town developed centering on soy sauce brewing industry, a fishing, and bare ground vegetables. Especially a fishing has the leading fishing port in the country. When I arrived at a fishing port, the auction of the fish has finished and the tuna which attached the red number was easily placed on the floor of a fish market. After a while, the fish broker stacked it and carried to the track. The main fish landed by this fishing port are a sardine, mackerel, a horse mackerel, a Pacific saury, a tuna, etc. Especially, a sardine and mackerel are proud of the No.1 amount of landing of the country. The truck which loaded the loading platform with the Pacific saury like a mountain had parked to the street where was faced to the fishing market.
