Tsukiji was called the "kitchen of Japan". A newspaper wrote: "Tsukiji is a symbol of the global food trade, the home of Japanese cuisine, and is one of Tokyo's most popular tourist attractions." Tsukiji showed an older Tokyo that is slowly disappearing. Everyone worked hard at the market until the last minute.
