And the intermediate wholesalers

walk around asking about fish prices.

After a short interaction

the wholesaler puts a sold tag

on the fish.

That's good!

Don't you have a box of 30?


It's not about being able to tell

good fish from bad.

It's about fulfilling

the customers' needs.

The quality and prices

of fish change daily.

That's where a good wholesaler

makes the right choices.

The best seafood in the world

comes to Tsukiji-.

Which allows us to provide fish

steadily to our customers.

Which allows us to provide fish

steadily to our customers.

Each lot is individually numbered.

We wholesalers can spot

a good fish.

It's different every year.

Tsushima fish is good now

but next year it could change.

It changes every day.

I only know conger eels.

I wouldn't last a day

Auction table A"

I check the flavor first.

The color, size, dryness...

I use all my senses to evaluate it.

I use all my senses to evaluate it.

The market deals with

20,000 boxes a day.

Sea urchins come from across Japan

and the world.

Up north from Russia

and Hokkaido.

Peru and Argentina.

A lot from Chile.

From both coasts of America.

Sea urchins"

Naturally we're totally focused

at auctions.

You can't just stand and watch

if you want good products to sell.

You evaluate the products closely.

And you seize the opportunity!

I love this work.

I'm 100% committed to Tsukiji.

It's fun.

The first time I bid I was 22.

I still get nervous just

before the auction.

When I'm depending on a bid

and there's only one

my knees shake.

There's none coming tomorrow.


I'll buy it.

They have quite a few cases today.

The price will go down.

We're rivals.

So we deceive each other.

I'll say something

negative about fish I want.
