Welcome to the photo series Eater Scenes, in which Eater photographers visit some of the country's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Here now, Daniel Krieger at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo.[Photos: Daniel Krieger]
The Tsukiji Fish Market in central Tokyo is the largest — and certainly one of the busiest — wholesale fish markets in the world. The early morning tuna auctions are a major draw for tourists, who come to watch authorized buyers try to outbid each other. The market has been open for over 75 years, handling some 400 different kinds of seafood daily. Below, a look at the bustling market on a Wednesday morning.
