Tsukiji : Preparation for New year

New year is drawing near, so I thought how is Tsukiji, and I went to see,
But Tsukiji Market opened as usual unexpectedly.
I expected more and more decorations just as New Year.
I wonder if it is due to earthquake.Or every year like that?

A, there were traffic jam.
There were many people than usual.

お正月料理は全部この築地で調達できますね。

Crab,cod roe, walleye pollack roe,salmon roe…. bright red.
This is pratically treasure.
There is a tradition in Japan that red foods and red things bring us a good luck.
So, we’re in the habit of eating red foods at New Year.
Especially, such a expensive seafoods that we couldn’t eat everyday.

By the way, I’m going to Atami tomorrow :).
