Photo of the Day: Mini Modulars at Tokyo Tower

One of the coolest things to see inside Tokyo tower are the mini modulars showcasing the area surrounding Tokyo Tower during the time it was built.

I shot the photo in black and white because there is a red light aimed at the modulars, so I converted the photo to black and white.

I love how the vehicles the store signs down to the telephone poles with wires showcasing plenty of detail.

But Tokyo Tower has a fascinating section on how it was built.

Photo of the Day: Tsukiji Market

In central Tokyo between Sumida River and Ginza is the Tsukiji Market.

A market supervised by the Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market (which is part of the Tokyo Metropolitan Bureau of Industrial and Labor Affairs), Tsukiji Market is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.

While the location has been around since 1935, the fish market was established long ago in the late 1800’s by Tokugawa Ieyasu during the Edo Period.  While the original Nihonbashi fish market was destroyed during the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the market would find a home in the Tsukiji district in 1935.

The location is great for vacationers or locals who are seafood lovers.  Especially since the location has one of the freshest seafood in the planet and the food is just delicious (and very busy).

But if you want to visit the old location, you have until November 2016 as the market will move in November 2016, in preparation for the 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics.

A festival showcasing cool outdoor gear, music and food and a pretty upbeat, relaxed atmosphere!
