Although the Tsukiji Fish Market is a major attraction for foreign visitors, I haven’t visited it until now. I guess tuna auctions don’t appeal to me too much. But I visited Tsukiji several times, and I have beautiful memories there (like the Bon Odori from Tsukiji Hongwan-ji).
One morning, wandering near the Fish Market, I noticed something unusual: the shops were… closing, before noon! Actually, because the market opens at 3 AM, it is normal to wrap up the day at 11 AM… like this みやこ shop:
