100908-0008 - Tokyo Fish Market


Tokyo Meiji 1890s Henry Strohmeyer

Boats are docked at the Nihonbashi fish market in Tokyo.

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.

The market was destroyed by the Great Kanto Earthquake (Kanto Daishinsai) of September 1, 1923 (Taisho 12). It re-opened in Tsukiji in 1935 (Showa 10), where it remained until October 6, 2018 (Heisei 30).
