All networks reported on a press conference held by Tokyo Governor Koike this afternoon, during which she officially announced the decision to postpone the relocation of Tsukiji Fish Market to the Toyosu waterfront originally planned for Nov. 7. Koike reportedly cited as reasons for the postponement that the results of the groundwater survey in Toyosu will not be ready until after Nov. 7 and the safety of the area still needs to be confirmed. She also stressed that the ballooning cost of the development of the Toyosu market needs to be scrutinized.
