Soundscape: Tokyo's Tsukiji Fish Market

Tsukiji Fish Market (9:01)  By Akiharu Hioki. The Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market commonly known as the Tsukiji Market is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world and also one of the largest wholesale food markets of any kind. The market is located in Tsukiji - central  Tokyo, and is a major attraction for foreign visitors. This is a beautifully shot non-narrative soundscape exploration of this facility that was built by the city after the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake destroyed much of the existing private markets of the time.
