Great to look as how it's all done. Hand and eye coordination.
I call it the great skill work of art to look at it.
Frozen tuna being sliced by specialists fish mongers.
Just observe how it's all done from being loaded on to the hoist and then hooked on to the slicing table.
The auctioneers selling huge tuna carcasses are very entertaining, and if you have the stomach for it, you can watch the fish being carved up into fillets after they're sold.
Tsukiji Fish Market. Get there early. Wow, the place is bustling with activity, so don't get run over! This is where the restaurants get their sushi and there's outside stalls to eat right outside.
