Tsukiji Fish Market - important changes regarding visit of wholesale zone

The Tokyo Metro Government has announced changes on the hours they will allow tourists inside the wholesale area of the Tsukiji Fish Market.


Effective July 1st:

Visitors will be allowed into the wholesale area from after 10am (instead of the previous rule of 9am.)


The Tsukiji Fish Market is closing and moving to a new location this November, and the new rules are believed to be a countermeasure against the sharp rise in visitors and possible issues with safety and business.
