Tsukiji Fish Market...





I was very interested in reading about the tsukiji fish market because I had watched a documentary about it on CBC a while ago. Although the reading provides an idea of the activity and energy found in the market, the documentary provided more "life" about the market. The fish auction was similar to that of car auctions, perhaps even more engaging as the purchaser was to base their choice on visual perceptions. They could not cut the fish open or find other means to validate the lucrative prices for the fishes; while cars at auctions are turned on, the hood is opened to view the mechanics, etc. Since I am unable to provide a source for the documentary, I thought that these pictures might induce similar sentiments as the CBC documentary.
