Turret truck - Tsukiji fish market, Tokyo

"Turret truck" is the signature transport vehicle in Tsukiji fish market, its narrow body, rounded front and small turning radius well suited to zip through the narrow lanes criss-crossing the wholesale fish market. No seat - the driver stands so as to minimise the foot print of the vehicle.

 

Seen here - A driver running his turret truck on the peripheral road of the wholesale market. The peripheral roads are lined with many non-descript cold storages.
