Market Report: Tsukiji Market, Tokyo

I know, Tokyo is far afield from Ukraine,  but my work brought me to Japan, and luckily to this market. An amazing variety of foods,  including an amazing variety of pickles.  Like Ukraine,  Japan is a culture that has often made do with foods at hand, which in this case includes pickled, fermented and dried everything, from squid to eggplants.   It was amazing to see, taste and smell so many different flavors along the way and I thought Pickle Project fans might enjoy a look as well.
