Special Thanks: The URAYASU Fish Market
The URAYASU Fish Market, which had been loved by numerous citizens more than for 65 years, was closed down in March in 2019. Although Urayasu-city had been famous for a fishermen's town, people have forgotten about it because the Tokyo Disney Land has been built in Urayasu-shi and nobody does not work as a fisherman in Urayasu anymore due to water pollutions and renouncing fishing rights.
One of this project's aims is to preserve citizen's memories as significant history through making a photo book collaborating with fish vendors and citizens.
This photo book also attempts to remind us how our cities, Tokyo and Urayasu, have been formed as a modern city above various sacrifices.
