Tokyo's famous Tsukiji fish market closed after 83 years. It is moving to a new area of Tokyo. Tsukiji market closed for parking for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics. Market workers at Tsukiji were sad. One fish worker said: "I'm almost crying. Today is a sad day of goodbyes."

Tsukiji was called the "kitchen of Japan". A newspaper wrote: "Tsukiji is a symbol of the global food trade, the home of Japanese cuisine, and is one of Tokyo's most popular tourist attractions." Tsukiji showed an older Tokyo that is slowly disappearing. Everyone worked hard at the market until the last minute.
