Naoto Nakamura's compilation of thirteen short stories uncovers a unique and fascinating picture about the Japanese fish business and a Tsukiji Fish Market tour he conducts. Motivated to address the possible relocation of the Tsukiji Market in 2016 and prevent this unhappy event, his book is the best published with the same kind of subject since Theodore C. Bestor's, "Tsukiji--The Fish Market at the Center of the World." The stories shared and formulated are not only informative, but also entertaining.
