Tsukiji Redevelopment Planning to Go into High Gear

Tsukiji Redevelopment Planning to Go into High Gear

   Tokyo, Jan. 9 (Jiji Press)--The Tokyo metropolitan government will accelerate work to draw up a blueprint for the redevelopment of the former site of the landmark Tsukiji food market following its closure in October 2018.
   Through the redevelopment, the metropolitan government aims to increase the capital's appeal as a waterfront tourism city.
   It plans to set a new urban planning policy for the Tsukiji district in Chuo Ward by the end of March, while mapping out a vision for the Tokyo Bay area including Tsukiji by the end of 2019.
   The former market site is "perfectly located, with very big potential," Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike stressed in a recent interview with Jiji Press, voicing the metropolitan government's eagerness to reinvent the Tsukiji brand.
   "We hope to develop a traffic network that functions like arteries" to connect across the Tokyo Bay area, she said.
