Discovery Tsukiji


This is the story about 'Tsukiji Fish Market'

You might already know that 'Tsukiji' is currently one of the tourist site
and people come to see 'tuna auction' held in the early morning.
It's quite early....start from 5am..
Even if Japanese poeple, I assume that few people see this auction.
So we thought we should go and see how things going anyway...

We got on the first train 4:34am and arrived at Tsukijishijyo station 5:21am...

We were planning to see the auction started 5:40am but the notice said...

So? it's great, we can now advise you that you would be better to reach there before 4:30am...
*Visitors limited up to 140 people, and start accepting from 4:30am

In case you missed that chance like us, we can still enjoy exploreing in some area :)
This is the vehicle called 'taare', it's running around only Tsukiji market.
Watch out on your behind, because they are very busy working and driving 'taare'...↑
And oh, it's great balance isn't it!

There are many shops selling, of course fish and vegetables, cooking tools and more...
How about buying daily dishes or Japanese pickles for dinner??
And you can find some interesting dry foods :)

The problem is taking a lots of time to decide what we gonna have...ummm

And let's say 'Itadakimasu' before you eat, it mean 'we going to have...(their lives)'.
Yes, that's true, so....don't you think it's good thing saying 'Itadakimasu' in thanks for meals ;)
