Food Trip at Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo, Japan

The sole purpose of my shotgun-solo-trip to Japan last September was to get to Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo before its closing and relocation this year. In preparation for 2020 Olympics, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government plans to relocate this world-famous and biggest fish market to Toyosu which is not very far from Tsukiji. According to news, Tsukiji will serve as a logistics base for the Olympics.

I've learned about Tsukiji Fish Market when I was still in High School. I used to like watching Japan's tourism promotion on free channel. It features Kyoto, Osaka, Tokyo, and other cool stuff in Japan. Watching clips of the Tuna Auction from television makes me want to witness it in real life.
