Tsukiji fish market

It is the biggest fish market in the world and it’s a good reason to wake up early: the Tsukiji fish market in Tōkyō, Japan. 2200 tons of fish and seafood are traded here each day; including big tuna fish used especially for sushi. It roots back to the 16th century and was created to provide the Tennō and his house with fresh fish.

It is planned to shift the fish market to another location and to use the buildings of the market as a press conference center for the Olympic Games. The new location in Kōtō is a gas-driven energy production sight and was therefore heavily discussed.
