Japan - Tokyo : Tsukiji Fish Market + Ginza

Japan : Tokyo - May 2015


Tsukiji Fish Market 築地市場


On our way to Tsukiji fish market, we walked past petrol station and were very fascinated to see their pumps were hanging from the ceiling. This can save alot spaces!


Here we are at Tsukiji fish market. It was only around 9+am and it was already so crowded. We gave the morning tuna auction a miss because it is too early for us - 4am for goodness sake.

Tsukiji fish market is a famous wholesale market for fish, fruits and vegetables in Tokyo. Most people go there for fresh and cheap seafood/sushi for breakfast or lunch. Most stalls close around noon or early afternoon.
