This photograph is taken in the early morning in the Tokyo fish market in Tsukiji. Market participants were working busily in the site from early in the morning.
Here, the fish and shellfish which were landed all over the country, and workpiece food gather. Into several buildings or a certain building, many wholesaler's store faced the thin alley and it has jostled. Various kinds of fish are arranged in the shop front, and it was easily loaded with the box after taking out by the side. Moreover, big fish, such as a tuna, also have the store finely processed on the inside of a shop using a kitchen knife. Movement of goods has gone the inside of a site back and forth busily by a peculiar vehicle like a scooter. Busyness is a peak even around 8:00am and, seemingly the rest will do business as a fish dealer or a restaurant partner. However, it seems that it is obstructive for the persons concerned that an outsider loiters around the inside of a site at busy time although I took a photograph forcibly.

I think this is possibly one of the most famous fich markets in the world for its incredible varaiety of fresh fish and their superb quality. We get just a hint of the hectic rush among the tradesmen and customers but it's an exciting view. There is such a lot of details to watch and I can only imagine the sounds and abover all the aroma of the fish and shellfish.

Been away for a while now i am back again to catch up something i have missed!
This is the biggest fish market in the world, Tsukiji in Tokyo and I have seen this doc on NatGeo a few times. They sell so much fish there, fresh every day. a truly rewarding shot but have to get get there very early morning as seen here. Great colours and action but it's a shame it's not a big crowd that I wish to see here. There's a really nice balance of elements/focal points, human and other elements in this scene that reflects the energy of the market. A wonderful place to chill but abundance of
photographic opportunities. Good documentary shot, well spotted and excellent additional image, Mikio. Congrats
