Posted on March 14, 2016 within News

Tsukiji The best Japanese fish markets offer exotic and lively offerings of fresh seafood and seasonal local specialties. These busy and fascinating networks of covered streets are lined with hundreds of narrow stalls and two-story shops juggling the chaotic businesses of the nation’s fishermen. Sample locally produced and sourced delicacies while you and fellow tasters observe as buyers and sellers scurry along narrow lanes with small but efficient carts.

Local chefs awake before sunrise every morning to get their hands on the highest quality fish, meat, fruit and vegetables available. Japanese fish market vendors display the morning’s catch as early as four or five a.m. and exciting auctions for enormous Bluefin tuna can sell for over a hundred thousand dollars. It’s very common for lines to form in front of popular restaurants as customers await the inimitable talents of these illustrious seafood experts.

Bite into some of the freshest salmon, shrimp, squid, mackerel, sea bream, octopus, eel, sea urchin and produce you’ve ever had the good fortune of enjoying. Experience these spectacular marketplaces servicing the most elite of Japan’s seafood restaurants.
