Tsukiji Market

leave a comment »

Located at Ginza, near one of the most expensive shopping streets of the world, the Tsukiji Fish Market is probably overlooked by many tourists. If you plan on traveling to Tokyo, don’t commit that mistake. Very aware of the potential as a major visiting spot, visitors are free to roam most of the market and take pictures as long as you don’t interfere with the business being done there. Very clean and very organized, everyone at the market seems to be busy all the time.

While strolling around, I noticed a large gathering of people on a corner. Curious about the crowd, I noticed that they didn’t work at the market. They were all gathered in lines, waiting their turn to enter some of the several sushi restaurants situated inside or nearby the market. Fresh sushi straight from the ocean doesn’t come cheap, but it’s worth it (at least once in your lifetime).
