| A streetcar crosses Nihonbashi bridge in Nihonbashi, Tokyo, designed by Yorinaka Tsumaki (妻木頼黄, 1859-1916). The white buildings on the right constitute the Tokyo fish-market.
During the early Edo Period (1603-1868) Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu invited fishermen from Tsukudajima in Osaka to Edo to provide fish for the castle. These fishermen started a specialized wholesale market called Uogashi (fish quay) in Nihonbashi. After the Nihonbashi fish-market was destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of September 1, 1923 (Taisho 12), it was relocated to the Tsukiji district, where it still operates to this day.
