New Tsukiji To Become A Lot Bigger Japan, November 29, 12

A new wholesale market planned for Tokyo’s Toyosu district is to be 40 percent larger than the one it replaces, the historic but increasingly decrepit Tsukiji fish market, a must-see for many foreign tourists and photographers.

On Nov. 27, the Tokyo metropolitan government unveiled a design for the new market, which will aggregate Tsukiji’s wholesale fish trading and its lesser-known fruit and vegetable businesses in new buildings in Koto Ward, likely by the end of fiscal 2014.

The Tsukiji market, with its earthy and cramped but vibrant trading atmosphere, occupies prime waterside real estate adjacent to the capital’s high-rent Ginza neighborhood.

The new market will be located 2.3 kilometers away. It will have a floor space of 408,000 square meters, 1.4 times greater than that at Tsukiji, which is in Chuo Ward.

Comprising a complex of three- to six-story buildings, the new market will have four main sections.

One is for seafood wholesalers, complete with observation decks for tourists. Another is for fruit and vegetable wholesalers. The third will accommodate seafood middlemen, and the fourth will house trading companies’ offices.

The current market supports a kaleidoscope of related businesses in streets nearby, from tiny sushi bars and greengrocers to chopstick retailers and vendors of rubber boots. The new market will try to replicate that atmosphere by incorporating restaurants and retail shops. Operators for those businesses will be selected by June, metropolitan government representatives said.

Meanwhile, the Tokyo government is currently working to neutralize toxic substances in the soil deriving from a former gas factory. Construction will begin as soon as the work is complete--likely by the end of this fiscal year.
