The Toyosu market is attracting more and more tourists.
Toyosu Market moved from Tsukiji Market in October 2018.
At Medaka Suisan, we have introduced a variety of information about the Toyosu Market, including recommended places to visit and take pictures.
With more and more tourists coming to the market these days, it’s bound to become a popular spot in the future!
*As of October 2022, the areas open to visitors are limited and some areas, such as inside the middle wholesale market, are not accessible to visitors.
There are various types of manholes in the Fisheries Building.
Did you know that the Toyosu Market has a mysterious attention to detail?
To my surprise, the manholes (or more accurately, the manhole covers) inside the market are original to the Toyosu Market, and there are several different types!
Manholes are a bit of a boom right now, and it seems that interest in manholes is slowly growing.
The author goes in and out of the Toyosu Market every day. This time, I would like to introduce a rare manhole that is said to be the only one in the market!
Manhole at Toyosu Market 1:Iki
Even if the market is relocated from Tsukiji to Toyosu, the “chic and inelegant” Edo style of the people working in the market will not change. This is a manhole for kitchen drainage.
Toyosu Market Manhole 2: Meikiki (Connoisseur)
This “Meikiki” is a manhole for domestic wastewater. It was taken before the relocation, so it is in very clean condition. The type is “domestic wastewater.
The Toyosu market attracts marine products not only from all over Japan but also from all over the world. It is the connoisseurship of the wholesalers and the chefs who are the buyers that find the sparkling one among them, isn’t it?
In fact, the author believes that the ability to be a connoisseur means delivering the right fish for their customers.
The manhole at “Uogashi” is business drainage. This was also taken before the relocation, so it is beautiful.
Tokyo’s fish market was born in Nihonbashi in the Edo period, moved to Tsukiji in the Showa period, and moved to Toyosu in the Heisei period.
It will continue to play an important role in delivering fish to our dining tables and restaurants, including sushi restaurants.
Hidden Mickey in Toyosu Market! Phantom “Tsukiji” manhole
The three manholes introduced so far are “iki”, “mekiki”, and “ugashi”.
However, there are only a few manholes in the market that are like hidden Mickeys.
This is the “Tsukiji” manhole. I also happened to find one when I was walking around the market. The location is a secret, but I confirmed that there are several manholes in the market.
Probably not many people found this place. The type of this manhole is “water supply”.
Visitors are not allowed to enter the middle wholesale market and wholesale area of the Toyosu Market
Although we have introduced these manholes, as of December 2018, the Fisheries Department wholesale hall where these manholes are located is closed to visitors.
I understand that admission as a tour is prohibited because there are many dangers in the market, but since we are here, we would like to see various places.
Let’s hope that the restrictions will be lifted in the future.
