Tsukiji Fish Market

Since being in Japan, I have read this article in The New York Times Travel section about the future of the Tsukiji Fish Market and how, after next year, it will be moved out of the city. Today we walked through the market and witnessed all the stalls and mini cafes. It was hectic and kind of stinky, but something tells me that it harks back to an “old” Japan (it opened in 1935). There were several guided tours happening, and many of the attendees were elderly Japanese people. Moving through the market was slow, in part due to elderly visitors, and in part because you need to weave through the long queues for certain ramen bars along the front of the market.

Here’s some of the pictures I took today…
