Last November after I went to Hong Kong, I had the awesome opportunity to stay with one of my best friends Chloe, who is currently living in Tokyo. There are hundreds of photos from that trip that I still haven't even attempted to go through, but I did recently take a little walk down memory lane of my stroll through the Tsukiji Fish Market.
This is a foodie and photographer's dream combined, so as you can imagine I was in heaven. I didn't wake up early enough to see the auction and the warehouse was pretty empty by the time I got there so I was able to take my time walking around.
I really enjoy seeing people do what they're meant to do really well, if you know what I mean. And these amazing fisherman excel at being the best of the best in the world's biggest fish market. It's pretty cool.
After my walk I waited over an hour (which is very typical) at one of the sushi restaurants right outside the market. I had a near death by sushi episode last April and hadn't touch a piece of sushi since. I figured if there was any place to get back on the horse, this was it. Wasn't going to get any fresher or better than at Tsukiji. However, I am sad to report sushi and I are still at odds. Maybe on my next trip to Tokyo we can try to make amends once again.
