In the entrance we saw a video explaining how the auctions were done and only after that we were able to enter the place.
|Waiting inside the video room. There was a lot of waiting involved in this.|
Here are the pictures that I was able to take.
|Analysing a piece of each of the tunas. These analysis are very thorough!|
|Looking at the meet directly on the fish|
|Their color under the light tells them if its too watery or not|
|They may be very valuable, but they're not always dealt with like that|
|The bell tells that a new auction is beginning|
|And here are the bidders|
|Another auction taking place just a bit further down|
|Some people looked like retired samurais that now spend their time cutting tuna!|
|If you are wondering... these are frozen tunas, not fresh (before I thought they only had fresh tuna!)|
|Inside the market, cars are substituted by these things. My question is, where's the accelerator and the brake?|
|With frozen tune you use tools like this|
|A big market also implies tons of garbage. Specially if everything comes in a styrofoam package|
|Taking a rest. It would be a perfectly normal sight if wasn't 6am!|
