Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Music Festivals And Gigs -

If you dream of sushi, you’ve prob­a­bly wit­nessed the live tuna auctions at the famed Ja­panese fish mar­ket al­ready or have de­tailed plans on what to eat and do there. Best to hurry up and fly to Tokyo as soon as you can though, as the whole­sale mar­ket is ex­pected to close and move to a new site in Toyosu – about 2km east from Tsuk­iji’s cur­rent lo­ca­tion – in au­tumn 2018. Be­fore you go, watch the ex­cel­lent ‘ Tsuk­iji Won­der­land’ doc­u­men­tary, which fo­cuses on the mar­ket’s fish ex­perts as well as the be­fore and af­ter of the auc­tion, from the ar­rival of the fish at the mar­ket to it be­ing served to din­ers.

Chome-2-1 Tsuk­iji, Chuo, Tokyo 104-0045, Ja­pan.
