New Toyosu Fish Market Opening Postponed


The relocation of Tsukiji Fish Market (Tokyo Metropolitan Central Wholesale Market) from its present location near Ginza to the Tokyo waterfront in Toyosu, Koto-ku, has been postponed to at least January 2017. The new Tsukiji was due to open on Saturday, November 7th, 2016, but following the election of Tokyo governor Yuriko Koike, more time is being spent reassessing the safety of the soil at the site.

The New Toyosu Fish Market (Toyosu Shin Shijo) was first projected to open at the end of March, 2016. This was only a projection, however, and the development was delayed as the topsoil of the landfill at the building site was decontaminated from the gas plant that previously occupied the site. The latest projected opening date set for November has also been put back to await publication of the results of the latest groundwater tests.
