In Pictures: Tsukiji fish market's New Year auction

It is one of Japan’s many New Year holiday rituals: In the early hours of Tuesday (Jan 5) morning, a massive, fresh bluefin tuna was auctioned for about 14 million yen (S$167,000) at Tokyo’s 80-year-old Tsukiji market. If all goes as planned, the tradition will not be quite the same next year. The world’s biggest and most famous fish and seafood market is due to move in November to a massive complex further south in Tokyo Bay, making way for redevelopment of the prime slice of downtown real estate.
