Surely Tsukiji fish market is an interesting place to go.
Better if early in the morning, you can see how japanese work.
A lot of fish types, many of them are still alive waiting for transportation prior to their final destination.
It is very hot now in Japan, more than I expected coming from a very hot country as Paraguay.
Pd: I have a new camera, so it is more probable to see me around again...happy to be here too!

Kike! Finally you´re back! Be welcome!
What a beautiful image to celebrate your return!
Japan? how is that?
Great shot with the lower part so graphic and being a counterpoint to the man´s face in the upper part. the warming tones are a surprise because fishes are usually related to silver/blue. very well done!
Hey I would love to know what brought you to Japan!
In my mba (which I am about to finish, thanks god! is about a guarani comunity in SP!)
Kiss, friend, and be welcome!

Hola Kike, good to see a new photo from you - and even more so from Japan (a country that has gained a lot of meaning for me - I have traveled there 7 times in the last 2 years, and my wife - whom I married last summer - is Japanese). Ironically, during all my trips we never went to Tsukiji (just couldn't put up with getting up early enough to be present for the most interesting part of the daily market business). This is a simple but interesting catch, with the foreground fish tank providing a good context to open up the view of the market workers behind. Good handling of the exposure. I look forward to seeing more of your Japanese impressions, which area(s) did you visit?
Take care -

Very good perspective showing the fish and the working men and environment behind. The vertical framing works well to capture the main protagonists in your image.

Kike!!! What a nice surprise! If only this comes out of checking TE every now and then (meeting old friends), it's worth it.
Nice to see you here, friend. Like you I'm not very active, but still I upload more than you ;-))
Seems an interesting place, nice, with the moisture on the glass. Nice layers
Do you ever have to come to the Netherlands?
And how's the family doing? Fabri? Big boy now, I guess.
I hope you are well, Kike. Give my love to Fabri and Vero.
