Since I always gain tons of information every time I come to these forums, I think it's time I give back. I just learned from the concierge of the hotel we will be staying in that Tsujiki Fish Market will not be holding their regular tuna auction for the public from December 2 to January 19, 2014.
We were told that The market will be open for the public at 9AM as normal for a visit but the tuna auction will be closed to the public during the dates listed above.
As we were planning on attending the tuna auction, I figured there may be others out there who'd be trying to do the same.
Here's the website with more info, but it's in Japanese. …tokyo.jp/INET/…top
