Synopsis

Tsukiji, known as the world’s largest fish market, has been at the heart of Japanese cuisine since opening almost eighty years ago. Boasting over 600 wholesalers who have dedicated their lives to supplying only the very best produce, the incredible scale of trade at Tsukiji is a testament to their pride and determination.

Shot at the onset of speculation about its relocation, this enduring snapshot of an iconic national institution is a sumptuous feast for sushi lovers everywhere and a rare glimpse of Japan’s culinary legacy before it is altered forever

Trivia

Tsukiji has been credited with maintaining the quality of washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine), which has been designated by UNESCO as an intangible cultural heritage
