Ooh… aah… ohh! It’s amazing to carve a fish this large, and a lot of work to boot! As someone who has worked in the seafood industry, I can testify that carving large, whole fish such as the tuna in this short film requires what my grandmother might have refered to as, “elbow grease”.
A must-see tourist spot in Tokyo.
Tourists often flock to where the most elite of the ocean’s creatures, living or dead, are paraded, poked, haggled over, butchered, and auctioned off to the highest bidder… world famous Tsukiji Fish Market. Being 56 acres of warehouses, hangar, and loading docks, Tsukiji Fish Market handles about 5 million pounds of fish everyday. Their ultimate destinations are restaurants, department stores, bento boxes, and MANY dinner plates. Fish is a big part of the Japanese diet.
This tuna looks so fresh and delicious. Mmm…
If you ever go to Japan, please visit Tsukiji Fish Market. The best time to go is early in the morning before 9am. Tsukiji Market is best accessed from Tsukijishijo Station on the Subway Oedo Line or Tsukiji Station on the Subway Hibiya Line.
