Tsukiji Fish Market Limits Tourists for Tuna Auction

Tsukiji Fish Market announced that they would accept only 140 visitors per day for their famous early morning tuna auction. They had placed a one-month ban from April 8th and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, which is in charge of markets in Tokyo, finally decided the new rules for those who want to see the real auction because of the safety reasons. More than 500 visitors per day in the beginning of April, came to the auction. Most of the visitors are from other countries. Please give respect to the traditional business and culture. It’s not a show and tour. Please be courteous in the market.
