Tsukiji Outer Market “JOGAI” – Wife’s Solo Travel –

Tsukiji Fish Market is like for professional people but Jogai is more for everybody. It’s next to the Tsukiji Fish Market premise. We call it “Jogai Shijo” or we simply call “Tsukiji Jogai”.

After I got 500 Yen chu-toro tuna, I left Tsukiji Fish Market and went to Tsukiji Outer Market (Jogai) to find space to sit down.

I found a flowerbed at front of a parking structure as space to sit and I realized there are a lot of people.
That reminded me last time when we visit Tsukiji Fish Market.
This time there were not much people than before in Tsukiji Fish Market.
People come to Tsukiji Outer Market more?? I think there are more restaurants.

So many people in Tsukiji Outer Market

They sell souvenir and food related seafood.
I got a Tsukiji Outer Market map in Japanese for free. I remember there are English version as well.
The map says ” We stay Tsukiji ” that mean they are staying after Tsukiji Fish Market move in November 2016. I think it is good to have old town like them 🙂

I saw a lady was sorting all trash.
In Japan, we have to sort trash depend on what kind trash.. recycle paper, batteries,  plastic, glasses, cans, electronics… I think the sign for direction on trash can was in Japanese so people don’t see it.
I feel sorry a bit..

found an Onigiri shop and the owner who I saw on NHK documentary.
I felt like I saw someone famous.
I asked her if she doesn’t mind taking photos of her.
She sounds like she really doesn’t care.
