Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market likely to turn into food theme park

Published on : Thursday, June 22, 2017

Tsukiji Fish MarketOn Tuesday, the destiny of the famed Tsukiji market started taking a transition while Yuriko Koike, the governor of the capital announced that she is likely to scrap the plans of shutting it down and selling the original site.


Instead, this fish market that is 82 years old, located in central Tokyo might be redeveloped and reopened as a brand new food theme park in the following five years.


Koike had also confirmed that the government might carry on with the relocation plans, and the main wholesale market would be shifted to the planned site of Toyosu on the outskirts of the town. In a press conference Koike said that utilizing both the sites would be a really wise decision.


He said that this decision would go a long way in promoting as well as protecting the world-class Tsukiji brand as a reason behind the decision.


The popular Tsukiji market was initially scheduled to move to a new area in Toyosu last November. But, last August the plan was halted by Koike amidst security concerns. It was believed that toxic substances were detected in soils and the groundwater at the new site that was previously shelter to a gas plant.


But then, the governor is yet to announce a concrete date to build the food theme park.


More than 70% of the Tsukiji fish wholesalers still had opposed the relocation plan, as per the local media.
