Tsukiji Fish Market

I'm finally back in London after an amazing week in Prague and try to catch up on many things. I'm really excited about today's post. Busy few days gave me an ideal opportunity to introduce a first guest blogger on my blog. I already did a guest blog post but I've never had a guest blogger here on Cook Your Dream yet. So, without other ado, let me introduce Melina Hammer. Melina is a wonderful photographer, who specialises in food and still life photography. I got to know her through Flickr where I admired her gorgeous food photos. She recently started her own blog Licking the Plate. I'm honoured to share her photos from one of countries which is high on my list of places I want to visit soon. So now, join me on a visual journey through Tsukiji Market.

I took a trip to Japan a few years ago and experienced a whirlwind of amazing sights and flavors. The famed Tsukiji Market was high on my list, and my initial adventure exploring its aisles made a lasting impression. I returned last month from another voyage to Japan, and wanted to share with you Tsukiji again. It will always be an enigma with its bustling foot trucks, noisy banter, and the viscera of fish and sea creatures everywhere. I am humbled, meandering the wet lanes lined with infinite stalls. These photographs are meant to share my wonder and my bewiderment, documenting the routine activities of these men and the unusual, beautiful fish who give their lives to them.
