Tsukiji - A look back in photos
The major Tsukiji fish market with 80 years of history closed its doors 2018 shifting to a new market. As of this writing, the building that housed to fish market is being torn down to make way for something, we actually don't know. It's incredible to think that the 80 years of history can effectively disappear in over a couple decisions. On the positive note, the new market just a town away has cleaner facilities, earthquake resistant buildings, and focuses on food. But of course, it'll be missing the charm of the clamor, mess, and chaos that the old building housed.
These photographs were taken in the years 2006 and 2009 with a Canon EOS 30D and later an EOS 50D.
