This photograph is taken by the Tokyo Tsukiji outer market which faces as Shin-ohashi street. The items dealt with in the Tsukiji market have vegetables and fruits, chicken and chicken egg, pickles, and various processed goods besides a marine product. Like this photograph, there are many stalls in outside the main market, and it provides the visitor with the bowl centering on a fish mainly. Although surrounding environment supposes that it is disorderly, it is always filled with people's wave to vigor. And, it is not the place where it was refined here unlike the nearby Ginza, however it will be a place suitable for getting to know a popular life view of people.
1. The inside of fish market: workshops

Ah yes, Tsukiji market, as a professional chef I had to visit that one while in Japan back in 2009. I have bought two great knives from one of the stalls there, still using them daily, they are so good.
Very pleasant market shot. I love your black and white approach, it suits the sujet very well.
have a good weekend

Hi dear Mikio. I am reading Banana Yoshimoto at present and have finished Murakami's After the Quake. Your photo has immersed me even more into the Japanese ways. Lovely scene where there is order beneath the apparent disorder- everyone going on quietly with their lives, savouring the food, enjoying the ambiance. As always, i wish i was there. Best wishes for a relaxing weekend. Klaudio.

The choice of sepia in this scene gives it a timelessness, a throwback to 30-40 years ago. The sharp focus, excellent depth of field, and the crowded market scene offers a certain allure.
Have a wonderful weekend,

This looks like a truly fascinating place where I would love to spend some time. There seems to be innumerable things to watch, smell and taste. Whereas the workshops are interesting, and the seafood looks delicious, the sepia tone gives this photo a timeless look that makes it very special.

This look classic well treated in mono to suit your taste, indeed I love the 'oldie' feel. Real hectic traditional market area nice tone, mood and full of life with everything on display. But more importantly is the strong sense of belonging of this place by the residence. The pov works well with background provides a good framing. A picture full of daily activity that just leaps off the screen. Thanks for sharing this 'vintage' look picture. Congrats.

The sepia or rather B&W texture enhanced outlines on image space.
The place is vibrant and crowded, so well conveyed ambiance.
You already know I like to see this in colors version.
Have a nice week ahead,

HI MIkio !!!
This type of markets are the same all over the world..... full of activity and with the best produce and other items. I always visit the central market when I arrive to a new large city.
I like the Sepia colour that you chose for this photo.
Have a happy week end.

A busy but nice photo showing the busy lives of the people of Tokyo. BTW, what are people from Tokyo called, Tokyoites? B&W suits this photo just fine.
