Farewell To Tokyo’s Iconic Tsukiji Fish Market…/strong>

The world’s largest fish market is in Tokyo – the “Tsukiji” Market is one of the most fascinating places I have visited – and I had the pleasure of filming there with G4 and eating there as well – but I found out today the sad news: it’s officially closed…

A Shocking Closure!

I was saddened to hear this news: after a delay of almost two years, the fish market did indeed close its doors forever on October 6th – being moved after 85 years to a new location in order for the government to use the space for the upcoming Olympic games…

The Tsukiji fish market opened in 1935 and is one of Tokyo’s most popular spots for tourists to observe the tuna auctions early each morning. These huge sides of Tuna would auction off for as much as $6,000 each!

  1. Always a shame but eventually it will be rebuilt and never back to former glory and much will be lost but also much will be new and reborn…I envy you for having seen it 🙂

  2. At least you got to see it, John. When they moved Billingsgate, the famous London Fish Market, there were a lot of people lamenting its demise. But they soon got used to it being in a new location.
    Then again, there wasn’t much Sushi around at the time. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
