Tsukiji fish market -.- Ice factory

Now that I think about it, I knew it had to be there, I only didn't know what to look for until I stumbled upon it. With so much fresh fish handled every day, all packed in ice, there had to be an ice factory on the grounds of the Tsukiji fish marked in Tokyo.

The procedure is as follows: a basket descends from the window on the top right-side of the photo and the ice is paid for. A couple of seconds later the ice pours out of the tube into the receptable; a carriage in this case.

Camera: Pentax MZ-3, lens: Sigma 28-300mm - 1:3.5-6.3
