The world’s largest fish market, Tsukiji, is a place like no other. Known as “the kitchen of Japan”, Tsukiji has been at the heart of Japanese cuisine since opening almost 80 years ago. Boasting over 700 wholesalers who have dedicated their lives to supplying quality produce, the incredible scale of trade at Tsukiji is a testament to their pride and determination.
Filmmaker Naotaro Endo began shooting at Tsukiji as soon as the market’s closure was announced in 2014. Shot over the course of a year, Endo captures the extraordinary operations of this iconic fish market.
