The-rest-of-the-story is that the new Tsukiji fish market is being built on top of the toxic waste site of Tokyo Gas Company—Tsukiji being the planet’s premier place for sushi.
Refer to The Japan Times report…
           New Tsukiji site highly toxic: panel (2008/05/20):

Note that the above picture contains the farty fun slogan, “MY CITY—MY GAS©.” This was Tokyo Gas Company’s slogan that they slapped on the side of thousands of their company’s trucks here in the city. Created for the 1970 Osaka Expo for use at the Japanese Gas Industry Pavilion, the slogan was used actively until the mid-1980s and it is still found in various versions today such as ‘myTokyoGas’ shown below.
