Tsukiji Wonderland 2016 – Documentary – length time 1h 50min. Director: Naotaro Endo
Synopsis JFF „Through the lives of professionals working at Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, the film portrays how Tsukiji has been the center of fish culinary culture and helped Japanese food culture to flourish as we know it today.”

Adding to the documentary … overall: Tokyo – Edo in 1923 was a grand earthquake and whilst rebuilding the venue over the decades Tsukiji became over the decades one of the biggest World Fish Market providing huge service to the world fish food by hard working people. They have daily wholesales fish auction and was clear to learn “most important is the “jouhou” (the information) without the info the fish would just sit there.

Tsukiji is One of the Seven Food Wonders of the World.

Tsukiji has its artisan culture. Was said, there are 10 days in a year when fish taste its best, but each season has its own variety in fish … Spring: brings shellfish … March: is the icefish season … Tune in the Spring are the best in taste. Tuna is all around the season, but during the summer they aren’t so fatty. Tuna live deep in the sea they do not have to struggle on the hook, they aren’t vital because of the food they eat. Summer: Sweetfish started to fish in june and they are caught in the river. Autumm: Typhoon at its best. Scallops arrive at ESqUISSE alive. Winter: more variety in fish and they get more fatter pufferfish – mackerel.

During the JFF was not all drama, documentary, musical but were animated features, films, cartoons for kids and interviews with Japanese directors.

Thanks to the JFF to watch through free online movies during in the festival!
