Tsukĳi Fish Market in Tokyo, renowned as ‘the world’s largest fish market’ is significant not only by its scale but more by the unique role it has played in Japanese food culture. All the best fish around the world, about 3,000 tons of fish worth sixteen million dollars arrive at Tsukĳi every morning. There are about seven hundred intermediate whole sellers called “nakaoroshi” running their own fish shops under one roof. Nakaoroshi are fish experts with origins dating all the way back to the 16th century. Each nakaoroshi specializes in a certain category, such as tuna, shrimp or eel and their way of business, skills and knowledge in handling fish is passed down from generation to generation even to this day.
Located right next to Ginza in central Tokyo, they have catered to the needs of demanding professionals and Tsukĳi’s effort to offer the best quality fish for their customers never ceases. Through the lives of professionals working at Tsukĳi, the film will portray how Tsukĳi has been the center of fish culinary culture and helped Japanese food culture to flourish as we know it today. It is our great hope that this film helps tell the rich cultural story of Tsukĳi so it can be carried on for the future.
