Recently, I went to Shijo Mae to see for myself how much the area has developed or not. It was interesting the facility, is huge and separated into two parts, one for fish and the other for vegetables. It is a bit strange walking around the area which is totally vacant of anyone, with the exception of the security guards at the many gates surrounding the area. Although inside I am sure there are many people hard at work to make it to the ned deadline of October 11, 2018!
Some people perceive the delay as a negative, and although I was very disappointed, I think it is a good thing that the facility was delayed and the health and wellbeing of the future customers is being considered.
I can’t wait to visit the finished market, I believe that it will be great, the facility is massive and very modern in design. It will be sad to see the closing of the Tsukiji Fish Market but I am glad that I have had the experience of spending so much time shopping and eating there, since it is walking distance to my home. But the new place isn’t that far away and the excitement if its opening is already stating to build,
This is the fifth time I have written about the Tokyo Fish market.
