URGENT PRESS CONFERENCE
Hiroyasu Ito
Chairperson of the Toyosu Market Association

15:00-16:00 Tuesday, October 16, 2018
(The speech and Q & A will be in English)

"Farewell Tsukiji; Hello Toyosu Fish Market"

The legendary Tsukiji fish market is gone. The new Toyosu fish market is born. After years of controversy and delay, the market that symbolises Japan's culinary culture is up and running at its new site across Tokyo Bay.

Many questions remain. Is the new site safe from soil contamination? Is it efficient, economic and well-designed? Will customers and tourists come to the new, less convenient location in Toyosu? What is the long-term future of the market in an era of declining population and fish consumption? Will the Tsukiji mystique live on?

To answer these questions, we are fortunate to be joined by Hiroyasu Ito, chairman of the Toyosu Market Association and head of the wholesaler Chuo Gyorui (also known as Marunaka)

Please reserve in advance, 3211-3161 or on the website (still & TV cameras inclusive). Reservations and cancellations are not complete without confirmation.
