Tokyo fish market opening hours Christmas 2013

Hello. Does anyone know if the Tokyo fish market will be open this Christmas 2013 ? We could visit on the 24th or 25th or, at a push, 26th but we are very keen to see it on one of those days if at all possible. All help appreciated. Thanks.

According to www.japan-guide.com,

"The tuna auction typically gets closed to tourists for a few weeks over New Year (most recently between December 1, 2012 and January 19, 2013) to ensure a smooth and accident free course of business during that busy time of the year."

I suppose the other parts of the market should be open since Christmas is not a public holiday in Japan:
