Tokyo Tsukiji Fish Market
We visited the Tokyo Fish Market at 4:30 in the morning. It is HUGE and so busy! There are workers zipping around on trucks and scooters as they bring in the fresh fish and seafood. Buyers and sellers are everywhere. One even gave us a ride on the back of his truck. So many kinds, and many I did not recognize. It is one of the world's largest fish market and handles over 2000 tons of fish a day. We also observed an auction of some huge tuna fish and many customers choosing the best for their purchases.
