travel asia japan tokyo tsukiji fish market

This fish market in Tokyo Chuo Oroshur Shijo is the largest in the world reportedly selling over 2 million kilos a day.
One of my two favorite markets anywhere in the world (the other is in Hong Kong).
An encyclopedia of sea life... vibrant, dynamic, colorful, exotic, educational... a must see.
