Tsukiji Re-opened to Tourists

Tsukiji market in the Japanese capital Tokyo had accused tourists of flouting hygiene rules and causing disruption with flash photography.

Some tourists had been caught hugging, licking and even riding the huge frozen tuna that are Tsukiji's most arresting sight, an official said.

Well, there goes my vacation plans for Japan. I was really looking forward to licking and hugging some huge tuna this year. No tuna loving means no Japan for me.

You need to make a t-shirt from this. Something like, "Tsukiji- Don't Harass the Tuna!"
