Roger's trip to Japan Apr 6, 2018 morning trip to Fish Market in Tokyo. Photos were shot with a Fuji X-T2 camera using a Fuji 10mm - 24mm f/4.0 lens, a iPhone 6s camera, or with a DJI Mavic Pro Drone camera mounted on a 3d gimbal.

This was the biggest fish market I have ever seen. The retail area must be 3 or 4 city blocks. The wholesale area where they pack fish in ice to be shipped all over world probably covers the same if not more area.
This seaweed is healthier than it looks.
Unhealthy Kobe beef but soo good. Look at the marbling in those cuts. 100 grams cost about $8.00. 1 pound is 454 grams so a pound of this beef would cost $36 and that is probably lower price than most markets would charge. I would go for the lean stuff on the upper right at $7.50 per 100 grams.
Various potato and vegetable fried pancakes.
Garlic French fries, vegetable, and shrimp tempura like food. Yum YUM
These strawberries are quite expensive. 1000 yen is $10. So those orange strawberries in the middle cost $40 US per package.
I bought some of the skewered red ones and they were very delicious.
Fresh shrimp, oysters, lobsters, and clams.
Oysters on the 1/2 shell and red tuna sashimi all ready to eat.
Look at the price of those cantaloupe like melons! $30 US each!!!!! I had some in a restaurant that were very delicious but I not sure they are $30 delicious?
Asparagus probably from France.
Look how clear those eyes are on these fish. Japans fish market is the best in the world in my opinion.
Uni sea urchin Malcolm talked me into eating some of this on the trip and now I am a fan of that slimy looking Uni.
They look like they were just pulled out of the Japan Sea.
I considered buying a big sushi knife but did not want to take a chance on getting it confiscated at the airport.
We had white asparagus at several restaurants in Japan. YUM YUM
Look at the size of those Fava Beans.
Japan's vegetables tasted soo good and sweet. Better than any where else in the world.
Huge carrots probably grown in a Mt Fuji Lava plot by a small farmer.
Mr Crab looks very fresh.
After about 2 hours on this Saturday morning touring the world famous fish market we of course decided to have a sushi lunch at a small establishment off the beaten path.
