Photographer's Note

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.
