World famous Tsukiji Fish Market 築地市場

Yesterday Morning I was thinking where should I go and then it hit me , Tsukiji fish market! I never got good photos from there even tho it is one of the most famous things about Tokyo.

I got there a bit early at 8am and the main fish market area opens at 9am but it didn’t bother me that much since all the little shops around the area were open, lots of interesting hand made things that I absolutely have to buy later.

Once I got in I started taking photos like a crazy person but the thing in Tsukiji is that us the foreigners need to understand that it is a place of business not a sightseeing spot, need to be very careful and fast not to disturb the people who work there.

Few pointers for y’all of what not to do !
1.Do not touch any fish you see (no matter how cute they might look)
2.Don’t stop in the middle of the pathways for more than 5-10sec
3.If you want to take a photo of the people working, take it fast and move on.
4.This is kinda easy but don’t go there drunk (same as going to other persons work place drunk)
5.Do not wear flip flops (sandals) there in any situations.
6.Don’t bring your children way too big of a hassle. (no rollers as well)

What you will learn at Tsukiji Fish Market!
1.You’ll learn to watch everywhere around you otherwise you will be run over.
2.How to take more fantastic photos fast with quick reflects.
3.That fish blood is actually red ! joking 😀
4.Some fish move even when they are cut in half ( zombie fish anyone?)

But now to the photo part! I hope you enjoy these, only 2 days left until our trip to Kyoto and Osaka so I want to leave something here for you to keep busy!

First couple of photos will be outside of the actual Fish market area.

In Tsukiji they don’t only sell fish but also fruits, handcrafts and much more.

  1. Thanks ! I am somewhat proud of these photos I took there ! need to go again tho ! aye very sharp ! you don’t have to pay anything to enter since it is not a sightseeing place, just walk in from the front get and you’ll get a map and everything. of course buying is different, you can buy fish there of course. They don’t speak English tho so if your Japanese is good enough should not be a problem !

  2. wow nice pictures..i really like those knifes i bet its very sharp. are we have to pay some ticket to get there?or just take a walk?? and can we directly buy some fish from them cause will take a couple of minutes if we do that right??is that possible ??
