【Tsukiji market 】- We can watch the Tuna auction here early morning.
When I had a night shift in the Sakura Hostel, Many guests asked me to call a taxi to watch a Tuna Auction on the fishimarket.
I was wondering that how is interesting place there.
The time of auction is just midnight so it isn't easy to make a planning.
However, I could get this place finally this day.
So I introduce about Tuna Auction here.
I headed to fish market one Monday on November.
I expected that it would be busy so I left earlier because the market is closed every Sunday.
I got there about 3:30 am. Some people were still made a line to wait.
It' was't easy to wait outside like these cold midnight...
Almost 4 am, a stuff let us entered a waiting room. It was warm in the room by air conditionar.
And then They gave us a print which registration number are wrriten at right bottom. I had a NO.11.
Two sets of nearly 60 people (Total 120 people) can watch the auction each day.
So nobody can expect which date is busy or not.
It can be watched first-come, first-served.
Made us separate to yellow jackets group and green jackets group.
Yellow jackets was first group then.
After that, everybody was just killing a time here.
Fortunately we could wait in the warm room.
If someone would take a own car to get to Tsukiji,
a big parking managed by Chuo city is located at north west of market.
It is every 30 minutes for JPY200 always.
