The Tsukiji Market, called “Japan’s Lively Kitchen”, is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.
Unfortunately the Tsukiji is scheduled to be re-located to the other area, Toyosu in November 2016.
This film is sure to be an enormously valuable account as a sort of film documentary of Tsukiji.

The Tsukiji was built about 80 years ago, when it moved from Nihonbashi area to Tsukiji because of the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923.
Fish and seafood from Tsukiji begins to color the Japanese tables and functions as the core of “Washoku”,
the Japanese cuisine which is added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2013.
Shochiku Film will release the full movie this October in the theater around the world.
