Classy Sh*t Travel

Colors of Tsukiji

I’m a sucker for a good open air market. What better way to get elbow to elbow with a throng of locals and tourists alike. The Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo is home to the world’s largest wholesale fish and seafood market and houses a daily auction for tuna to be shipped all over the world.
