New Tokyo Fish Market to Open in October 2018

TOKYO – Toyosu market, which will replace the famous Tsukiji fish market, the world’s largest, will open to the public from Oct. 11, 2018 after six years of delays, the governor of Tokyo said on Wednesday.

Local authorities and market representatives believe that the time span given is sufficient for tenants at Tsukiji to relocate to the new facilities at Toyosu, an artificial island in Tokyo Bay, Yuriko Koike said at a press conference.

Any further delays could impact pending projects related to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, including the construction of a car park on the Tsukiji site.

The transfer of the market was approved in 2001 with the aim of extending and revamping facilities that dated to 1935, but the project was postponed on several occasions due to high pollution levels detected at the new facilities at Toyosu.

The main gas supplier in the Japanese capital, Tokyo Gas, had then admitted that the new facilities had a high toxicity as it had previously housed one of its plants.

Yuriko Koike, upon becoming governor to power in 2016, announced that the project would be pushed back again in order to carry out adequate cleaning operations.

All necessary refurbishments are expected to be completed by July 2018.
