Operation Tsukiji: Tokyo battles rats as iconic market shuts

After a fabled 83-year history, the world's biggest fish market, which is also a huge tourist magnet for its pre-dawn tuna auctions, will move to a brand-new facility in Toyosu, about 2.3 kilometres (1.4 miles) away on the waterfront. Tens of thousands of rats expected to scurry loose when the move takes place in October.
