Tsukiji Fish Market To Limit Visitors

築地市場

The popular Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo will limit the number of visitors to its tuna auctions from May 10 after this year's Golden Week holidays.

With up to 500 people sometimes gathering to watch the tuna auctions, the Tokyo metropolitan government has decided to limit the number of visitors to 140 daily, divided into two groups, with 70 people allowed to view the auction at any one time.



*In 2015 Tsukiji Fish Market will move to a new site in Toyosu.

This place was so dangerous it's a good idea to section places off. Fish Market Photos
