The World-Famous Tsukiji Fish Market Closed its Doors
Opened in 1935, the largest fish market in the world has moved, to the great displeasure of the many tourists who enjoyed attending the famous tuna auctions which took place at 5:30 am. This exodus is forecast to have dire consequences for ancestral culinary traditions.
The dilapidated, worn out premises of Tsukiji Fish Market have been deemed vulnerable to earthquakes, and so, on 11th of October, this symbol of Tokyo left its iconic residence and relocated to new premises in Toyusu.
The old site will eventually be transformed into a gastronomic theme park, where tourists will be able to breathe in the unique atmosphere of the fish market, albeit from a walkway behind a glass window.
