Tsukiji Fish Market – Tokyo, Japan

 

Though it isn’t geared for individuals, and instead caters to merchants and restauranteurs, the Tsukiji Fish Market is a destination any traveller who finds themselves in Tokyo should be open to checking out.  With thousands of varieties of fish for sale, and tons upon tons of fish sold each day, the Tsukiji fish market is the nexus of the global fish trade.  Any traveller or backpacker wanting to watch serious wealth change hands over fish (and willing to get there at 5 am), should check out the Tuna auctions that take place there each day.
