A Friday in Tokyo's biggest fish market with GP's Justin McCurry

McCurry brought the sights, sounds and stories of Tokyo's Tsukiji market to followers of @AFridayIn. Check out his fun facts, videos, photos and audio clips.

Unsurprisingly, Japan is home to the world's largest fish market: Tsukiji, in Tokyo.

What's the next best thing to visiting? Exploring the market's sights and sounds with GlobalPost's @AFridayIn, guided by our own resident expert in all things Japanese, Justin McCurry. His photos of unusual delicacies, videos of butchers at work, and audio clips of market-goers bargaining for the day's catch took us right to the scene — and sure made us hungry. Check out his tweets below for the full experience.

GlobalPost's @AFridayIn Twitter feed showcases the voices and personal experiences of our correspondents based around the world each week. A different correspondent takes over the @AFridayIn account each Friday and tweets about his or her travels and daily activities.
