Tsukiji Fish Market

A Japanese fish market typically happens early in the morning. This particular auction, happening at the fish market in Tsukiji, Tokyo has origins back in the 16th century when the fish that wasn’t sold to the Castle was auctioned out at a nearby spot – which then became theTsukiji fish market. Today the Tsukiji fish market is the biggest wholesale market in the world!

 

Sushi for Breakfast

Imagine having sushi made from fish caught just a few hours ago. This is what Kei and his friend had at a nearby spot after visiting the auction. Of course, it was still very early, so sushi was on the breakfast meny that day. Take a look at the clock hanging on the wall in the Moment below: one would think it showed 6:30 pm, but it is actually 6:30 am!
