There's nowhere quite like Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. Work begins before many people even head to bed, with the excitement really kicking off in the early hours of the morning. It is a place of gloriously organised chaos - thousands of people rushing around to secure the best fish for the seafood shops and restaurants of Tokyo and beyond. From the fast-paced tuna auctions to the small army of wholesalers tasked with finding the catches of the day, it is a place that buzzes with life and drama.
Naotaro Endo's documentary spends time in the building that has hosted the world's biggest fish market for more than 80 years. It is a very human story - from the wholesalers who spend endless hours in the market, to the world-famous chefs who rely on the market to provide the 'best of the best' fish. Tourists currently face strict restrictions when attending Tsukiji, and there are controversial plans for the market to move to more modern facilities in the near future - so this thoroughly entertaining documentary is a delightful way to experience the unique pleasures of what really is a wonderland.
