From Tsukiji To Table
Take a sensory journey from Tokyo's world-famous Tsukiji Market to your table
It should be pretty obvious that you can find some of the most delicious sushi in the world in Japan, not only because it’s the birthplace of sushi, but mainly due to the fact that they have the best and freshest of ingredients - especially fish. In Japan, the whole process begins at around dawn, in Tsukiji fish market. Every morning, the best catch of the day comes into Tsukiji to be sold and distributed domestically or across the globe to the most high quality restaurants. Tsukiji’s tuna auctions are serious business, and many tourists have tried but failed to get a spot in viewing the auctions. Instructions vary once the fish reaches its destination, and it’s up to your chef to explain to you how he made a piece of fish into the mouth-watering piece of sushi you see before you.
