Let’s Visit Tokyo – Tsukiji’s Market
Tsukiji is among the most famous fish market in the world, it is also where most of the fish you will eat in Japan comes from, or at least in Tokyo. If you are lucky enough and ready to wake very early in the morning you may be able to walk among the buyers. Yep you need to be very lucky since it from December 10 2009 to January 23 2010, the morning auctions will be close to tourist…
Anyway if you are interested in seeing the auction, you’d better wake-up early since it is started from 5am.
Now if like me you are just too plain lazy the Saturday morning, you can still enjoy the Market just next to Tsukiji where you will be able to enjoy nice meals at anytime, buy fish and other stuff and get a nice feel of a real Japanese market.
And that exactly what you are going to enjoy today with the video below.
Also, I would like to apologies for the Jerkiness on the video, Tsukiji’s Market is VERY crowded and I could not use my tripod… Shooting with my 5D MK II and its 50mm lens without IS did not really help in getting something smooth… Next time I will make sure to bring my monopod along with me…
