Octopus Balled Up
This is going to become sushi in some restaurant. Perhaps a little Takoyaki? See an example in a Kyoto Market

Entrance To Fish Market
This is the entrance to the larger fish market. You can see the carts that run through the market bringing boxes of fish out to the larger street trucks.

Ascidians - Halocynthia roretzi
The internet has come through - apparently they are ascidians - specifically Halocynthia roretzi. Ascidians are sea squirts hermaphrodite marine invertebrates that live in shallow ocean waters, and which are thought to exhibit characteristics of the evolutionary ancestors of chordates and vertebrates. (Thanks goes to Karen Sanamyan at ascidiacea.com/
Species: Halocynthia roretzi (Maboya in Japanese)

You can see the body is fully of ice - I'm not sure if that means this is fresh fish or frozen, but if it was frozen they would probably be using the band saw.

Snails
I'm not sure why the shells on these snails are so broken. I'm not sure if these are salt water or fresh or how it's eaten.

Lifting Tuna
This tuna was heavy - they had four people lifting it out of the freezer onto the table so it could be cut into smaller pieces.

Processing Area
The hanger doesn't have central lighting (that I saw), but there are large sky lights. Most of the vendors had lighting over their sales area, but some parts of the building were quite dark.

3 Bins Bonito Flakes
