The Tsukiji Fish Market is like no place I’ve ever seen before.  Most astounding was the fervour of pace, the sheer number of actions being executed at any moment.  Men, women, old, young; handling, preparing, gutting, package, slicing, most while still alive.  I guess being the worlds largest fish market doesnt happen without some serious people power.  Second, the fish!  One fish two fish, red fish blue fish… Holy Hamachi. There were Tuna, monstrous Tuna; Abalone, never seen so many Abalone; Rays, Eels, Geoduck and numerous other unidentifiable mollusks … pretty much anything that swims you can find here.  Best of all, you simply walk out onto the streets surrounding the wholesale market and let the wafting aroma lead you to find some of the most delicious (and certainly freshest) seafood delectables you can imagine.  Below are just a few shots I snapped while was there.  If you find yourself in southern Tokyo, just go there.
