This item appears on page 53 of the November 2018 issue.

The famous Tokyo tuna auction, held for decades at the inner Tsukiji Market, moved on Oct. 11 to the new, larger Toyosu Market ( [in Japanese only]), located on the man-made Toyosu Island in Tokyo Bay. The auction, a popular event for visitors to Tokyo, will not be open to the public initially. Visitor information will be announced at a later date.

Along with the auction, restaurants and shops in the inner Tsukiji Market have also moved to the new location. Shops and restaurants located along the outer Tsukiji Market remain.
