Tsukiji Supporting japanese food culture
Uogashi(riverside fish market)started in early Edo period. Seafood
caught from fishing areas in Tokyo Bay began to be
sold at the market near Nihonbashi Bridge. Many years later, in 1923,
the Central Wholesale Market Law was established,
and "Nihonbashi Uogashi" was born as an official market. And in 1935,
the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market,
with an area of 220,000㎡, was opened in today's Tsukiji. Over 70years
have passed since then, and it is now Japan's
representative market. Tsukiji Market receives about 4,000tons of fish
and vegetables per day, and especially as a fish
market, it is proud of its largest scale in Japan. In the early
morning, people not Tokyo but also from neighboring cities
and towns come to the markets, seeking fresh seafood carried from fish

place, and the filled with energy from very early morning. From Edo to
today's Tokyo. Uogashi "Tsukiji" has supported
and created Japanese food culture.
