Flash photography is NOT allowed here. And you have to be in one designated place where they allow ooglers to observe the whole bidding process.
Frozen tunas are everywhere on the floor. I have never seen too many fish tuna in my life! The auction is only open to the public from 5:00-6:15 in the morning.
Before the bidding started, buyers were allowed to go around to inspect the frozen fish tuna.
When the auction started, everyone was encouraged to keep quiet so that buyers can hear the prices clearly.
After the bidding process, each buyer got their share.
They went directly to the saw room.
And cut the frozen fish tuna into pieces like this.
Outside the market are tiny restaurants (can only accommodate 5-10 people inside) where fresh sushi and other raw fish dishes are prepared and served. I passed by these restaurants and the queues were long.
So instead, I went to a nearby coffee shop and had a latte. But before I exited the fish market, I had an obligatory photo with the poor fish tuna.
