The work of Tsukiji Fish market is early. Many fishes are carried into this market past 4:00 AM on tracks, railroads, etc. from the fish market of national every place. If it is past 5:00, the auction of the fish which values such as a tuna will start in one corner of a market. The auction is knocked down by the observer's peculiar gesture. The right-and-left upper and lower sides have many a broker's booths across a narrow passage at the site of the building of a fish market. It seems that the fish dealt with by a store is also different when it observes well. The just bought-in fresh fish is crowdedly arranged in in front of a store. Big fish such as a tuna are disassembled and subdivided. The peculiar scooters loading with the box of the firing styrene into which the fish was put go a passage back and forth busily. It seems to be a man's battlefield from 5:00 of a morning till 9:00. A fish dealer, a volume retailer, and the customer of the food service industry come to a market, and buy in a fish. If afternoon comes, a store will be closed and will become leisurely. It seems that the sightseeing visitor can enter past 9:00 AM now. Moreover, the auction inspection of the tuna is a license system by the ticket of 100 first arrivals at 5:00 in the morning.

You must be an early riser with this shot, a truly rewarding to be here - the biggest fish market in the world. There's a really nice balance of elements/focal points, the serious looking broker, other elements in this scene and the ambient that reflect the energy of the market. A wonderful place to chill but abundance of photographic opportunities for sure. Good shot in great warm natural lighting and excellent addition shot showing two big deep frozen tunas. This is good documentary shot so well taken and well written narratives. Congrats.

Great sense of the scene, I can almost smell the fish! The light tones and colours work well, and good focus. I like his tired/daydreaming look, amongst the bustle he meditates for a moment..

A fine big fish portrait... my humor only. Yet, a seller-man with a serious face expression, probably waiting for buyers.
Well managed the variable light indoor's - not an easy task, but made best under those condition.
