The Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo needs little introduction. The world’s biggest wholesale fish and seafood market is famous for live tuna auctions and is a popular spot for locals and tourists alike.
To make way for development, the market will be relocated, a move that was initially set to take place this month.
However, the move has been delayed and tentatively rescheduled for early next year due to safety concerns at the new site.
When award-winning, self-taught photographer Zann Huizhen Huang heard about the move, she took the opportunity to visit the market to document the buzz and soul of the place before it closed.
She came away awed by the tuna auctions and how organised the Japanese community is in handling the whole process.
Here is her photostory.
