In Episode 5 of the increasingly popular podcast series A Year in Japan, Joseph takes you on an early morning trip to Tsukiji fish market in Eastern Tokyo. With over 50,000 employees, it’s the largest market of its kind in the world – and also one of the most dangerous with hundreds of ‘Mighty Cars” buzzing around the place!
There’s also an interview with the Tokyo architect Masaki Endo, winner of numerous high-profile awards for his “Natural Ellipse” creation.
In the listeners’ feedback section we hear from some rather odd people… Are you all like that?!!
