The fish of number 2 are wonderful, horrible.

#4 & #10 are my favs. This must have been a very smelly and gory experience! It kind of makes me guilty for eating fish.

Be glad you were able to take photos -- there's a new policy banning tourists from the tuna auctions at Tsukiji.

realy like this set! i enjoy the atmosphere of fish markets a lot, i like the people, the sounds and the smell of a fish market. i took pictures of the fulton fish market last year but they haven't been what i wanted them to be. probably try again this year...

That first photo speaks to me. And it says "sashimi."

Great place. I would like to see some black and white work as well. The noise and the smell and energy are all here.

fish heads, fish heads, eat them up yum! a little dr. demento. love sushi, but i love these photos even more. the red fish in the first picture is so luminescent. beautiful! love the profile of the man and the detail of the octopi.

the fish are huge! awesome pics as usual
12 May 05 @ 22:02
SAKANA OISHI!

I was there 25 years ago. I will never forget that place. Your pictures tells it all! Great work. It is not easy to take clear and nice pictures in covered and badly lit markets.
13 May 05 @ 10:06
this is a great sequence - the only thing missing is the smell of the place: which I guess must have been quite something else !!
13 May 05 @ 13:56
Fish heads fish heads rolly polly fish heads ;)
13 May 05 @ 17:01
Great pictures, I really like the one of the cutting bored and knife.
13 May 05 @ 18:33
that tuna in the first fish (tuna, right?) is amazingly red...fresh!
13 May 05 @ 23:51
I'm a vegetarian, and these photos made me absolutely cringe - I suppose that means they were good :-)
15 May 05 @ 11:45
That man's profile... looks like fish head. Was that your intention?

that was absolutely the best sushi i've ever had in my life. 5:30am (end of a long fun night) , second seating at this tiny place. 12 selections for $10. melt in your mouth euphoria.

This set of photos reminds me of one of the first scenes in Memoirs of a Geisha. Great set!
