They were everywhere!!I didnt see any fish hugging but there were a few times I wanted to yell at tourists for being in the way. The workers were so patient.
When you say "behind the counters" do you mean the wholesaler's counters/cash register area or the entire wholesalers section?
Because it is still considered a tourist attraction, I guess. Never been there, myself. But when you have clearly marked paths and blatant signs forbidding certain practices (much like cave tours or museums), why are tourists so rude, stupid, and overbearing to break those rules?Why don't they just ban tourists altogether if they are such nuisances? When the market is moved will it still be open to the public?
Yes, the Japanese merchants that I saw on the TV seemed patient, but perhaps that's just the stoic Japanese you see, or perhaps it was because there were news cameras present, or maybe they just figured no tourist would understand them anyway if they used spoken commands.
People can be so stupid sometimes. I mean, do they even realize that the fish they were fondling were going to be sold to restaurants and sushi bars that very day, so they were basically contaminating them? Geez.
