TsukijiWonderlandへの招待状#6―雲丹セリ場―

セリ場に足を踏み入れたら、そこはプロしかいない世界だった。

600時間にも及ぶ撮影素材の中で、本編で使用できた映像は限られています。
ここでは、まさに「ワンダーランド」築地市場の「ほんの一部」を紹介します。

【雲丹セリ場】
扇状に伸びた相対卸売場には多くの階段が点在する。棟の上階部分は卸会社の事務所や銀行,郵便局などの施設、浜離宮側の突き当たりには東京都の築地オフィスなど様々だ。そんな建物の奥まった一角、特種を取り扱う小物相対エリアにある細い階段を登るとセリ場はある。その閉ざされた密室感から、そこが市場の深部であることを強く印象づけられる。
階段を上がり、まず目を引くのは大きく「立ち入り禁止」と書かれた扉の先にある冷蔵室だ。室内には世界中から集められた雲丹が並んでいる。多い時には2万枚を超えるという。訪れた仲卸がまずはそこに入り、下付けを終えれば出てくる。そんな様子が繰り返された後、仲卸がセリ台で休息をとる姿が目立ち始める。新聞を読んだりパンをかじりながら談笑する馴染みの風景だ。AM5:00、そんな和やかな朝のひと時を壊すように、セリの開始を告げるベルが大音量で響く。

 

[Invitation to Tsukiji Wonderland #6-Sea Urchin Auction hall-]
“I found myself in a wonderland I could have never imagined.”
Since we have over 600 hours of video, there was a limit to the footage we could use in this movie. So, we would like to introduce you to some of the footage not used in this movie.

There are many stairs scattered about in the fan-liked formed Negotiated Transaction Wholesales area.
There are various offices among them.
Upper floor of the building are used by the wholesales company, bank and post office.
And Tsukiji office of Tokyo Metropolice stands at the end of the building, in the direction of Hamarikyu park.
The auction place for Tokushumono -Special High-Ranked Ingredients‐ stands back in a corner of that building.
That closed chamber like atmosphere impress the place is located deep inside the market. After walk up stairs, refrigerating room with the message saying “no-go area” draws our attention.
Sea urchins gathered from around the world are displayed in side the room.
More than 20 thousand Sea urchins are shipped in during the peak period.
This place is the first place when the Nakaoroshi people come to the market. They leave the room after checking the quality of the displayed products.
After seeing these scenes are repeated, we come to notice that many Nakaoroshi people start taking break on the ”auction board” which is a board in tiers where Nakaoroshi people stands on during the auction.
It is the daily scenery. They read Newspapers or have chats with having their breads.
At 5am the sound of the bell rings out, as if it break the calm relaxed time in the morning.
The bell is the sign to announce the beginning of the auction.
