Tokyo’s Legendary Fish Market Is On Fire!
A fire broke out at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market Thursday – and firefighters have spent hours bringing it under control – here is the latest from The Guardian:
“Dozens of firefighters have battled a fire at Tokyo’s famous Tsukiji fish market, an area packed with tiny seafood vendors, sushi restaurants and tourists.
Efforts to bring the fire under control continued late into Thursday evening.
Clouds of gray smoke and orange flames rose from a row of wooden stores in an area called “the outer market.” The street outside was filled with fire engines. Pedestrians walked briskly by, covering their noses and mouths with towels.
The Tokyo fire department said no one was injured or trapped because the fire broke out after the shops closed.”
Tokyo’s legendary Tsukiji fish market is the largest in the world – here is the latest news on the fire from The Guardian.com:
I have been to the fish market several times – I shot there with G4 and I took my wife Alex and son Jeff there for “Sushi for breakfast”:
This legendary market was scheduled to be moved late last year, but that was delayed: here is that story:
Luckily, it appears that none of the interior area of the market was damaged!

I know how much you love that market, John. Given the ‘delayed move’, do you think this fire might be suspicious?
Best wishes, Pete.

Pete, they just announced that it will, indeed move, but it does make you wonder what’s going on behind-the-scenes there, right?
