Finally we are here to victim all the big tuna at Tsukiji Fish Market on 22nd March, we were really looking forward to see how they cut 300 kg tuna fishes, but because Tuna Auction open to visitors from 5am and restricted to 120 visitors/day only. So we decided not to try our luck again and go for wholesale area only at 9.30am.
Tsukiji, in Tokyo, is the largest fish market in the world. Beside being huge, it is worldwide known for its really exotic variety of species like huge tuna fishes, whales, blow fishes or mussels the size of your head. There we found many people driving around with some kind of carts that move really fast. If you don’t pay attention, one of those carts will run you over, they just don’t care if there’s people around.
A few more general rules for visiting Tsukiji Market, like do not enter restricted areas, no bring small children or pets, no smoke in the market, no touch anything! Some of them don’t allow photography so don’t expect them to be rude to you.
Besides the wholesale market, there is also the place for you to enjoy the amazing and incredibly freshest sushi for breakfast or lunch in Tokyo. All the shops in the market were having a long queue, maybe from all the recommendations from the tourist books. When we walk through and check out the price, all shops were quite expensive.
Daisada, an omelet shop which has been open for 80 years. They got many flavor here, and we decide to try but don’t know which one to choose since we can’t read Japanese. End up we choose something green, and we eat this after FEW DAYS.
