      It’s been 80 years since

       

      Tsukiji market was founded.

 

  The market originally started 

 

     to provide Edo castle with food.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 東京すしアカデミー 築地見学2   Its history began when Tokugawa Ieyasu

   

    who established the Edo Shogunate

 

    invited fishermen from Osaka.

 

    Now more than 1850 tons of fishes

 

are traded, more than 35,000 people

 

visit Tsukiji market per day.

 

Fishes come not only from Japan

 

but also from overseas such as New Zealand, philippines.

  

Also they are shipped to overseas from Tsukiji Market.

  It can be called a worldwide hub for

 

     wholesale market.

 

   The prices set in Tsukiji marked are

 

     timely reported to overseas.

 

The prices also affects world markets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Intermediate wholesalers can calculate the prices

 

 once they see the fishes.

 

 To judge good fishes, they have to train their eyes.

    and intermediate wholesalers

 

 shout each other

 

 to get better and cheaper fishes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

   The auction section will move to

 

 Toyosu this by the end of this year

 

 Tsukiji will keep on doing business

 

 as a hub for brokers and buyers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Students go to a shrine to pray for safe and luck

 

on their business before visiting Market.

   highly evaluated by professional chefs

 

    provides us with fresh fishes everyday.

 

 Since their quality varies,

 

 It is one of the important job

 

 for Sushi chef

 

 to judge its quality and prices.

  Mr.Ishii taught students that

 

  “There are three most important points

 

 for Sushi chef to judge fihes-

 

   “Visual”, “Taste” and “Price.”

 

 The first and most important thing you have to judge is

 

 its “Visual” because your Sushi

 

 have to be beautiful. Customers

 

     judges Sushi by visual first.

 

 Customers who once had interested

 

    in your Sushi and moved by its taste,

 

    will surely come back. 

 

      Don’ t think too much about price  if you want to be a good Sushi chef.

 

 Those who weigh on its prices think upside down.”

 

 He taught the essetial of Sushi to us through fishes.

 The job of Sushi chef starts from judge and select fishes!
 
 
    We have to learn more and more about Sushi!
 
 
   Good luck! Sushi chefs in future!
