Tsukiji Fish Market

Trip to Japan, 2007. Kiyoko said we must see the great fish market
while we are here. So off we went; it was wonderful!
The Tsukiji Fish Market is on the Sumida River;
on this great river Basho lived and, beside it, planted his banana tree.
Jerry Ball has some Japanese, so he was able to speak to this couple
who gave is a such a great welcome. Smiles!
