Japan Creative Centre (JCC), Embassy of Japan in Singapore, is pleased to present Tsukiji with Love – A photography exhibition by Singaporean and Fujifilm X-Photographer/Ambassador Derrick Ong that showcases over 30 selected works featuring the last moments of Tsukiji Fish Market (築地市場) – the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world that was opened during the 1930s, and was closed and relocated to the new Toyosu Market in October 2018.

About the Exhibition

© Derrick Ong

Derrick Ong has always been a huge fan of sushi, and he regularly visits Tsukiji on his postings to Japan as a wedding photographer. When he heard that the Tsukiji Fish Market was about to close its doors and move to Toyosu, he undertook a special project to showcase the heroes who make enjoying sushi and sashimi around the world possible.

In this photography exhibition, Derrick combines his skills as a street photographer and his knowledge of Tsukiji's working to bring us behind the scenes. See how the world's most famous fish market serves up the freshest and the best.
