The Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market, commonly known as Tsukiji fish market (Tsukiji shij┼Ź) is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world and also one of the largest wholesale food markets of any kind. You should see it at early morning when it is crazy as a world wholesale market! BTW-the comment about the banas-chuckle there are 41 varieties of bananas alone in Thailand-there are hundreds of varities from tiny finger banas to huge ones-some yellow, some red. Flavours REALLLLY vary. The "huge" soybeans are Fava beans, and the "daikon" that was narrow and brown is Gobo. The canned papaya was NOT from Japan-probably from Hawaiia where Dole has canneries. Thailand, Indonesia and Philippines also grow many papayas as they need a tropical climate to grow. Great video and very uncrowded due to the World Cup and time of day.
