They give "one eye on the face" to the tuna in Japan


The owner of a chain of sushi restaurants set a new record yesterday, paying more than three million dollars (58 million 264 thousand pesos) for a bluefin tuna in the first auction of the year in the capital's new fishing market.

Kiyoshi Kimura, owner of the Sushizanmai network, paid the millionaire for the 278-kilogram piece that was captured off the coast of Aomori province in northern Japan.

This figure doubles the mark he established in 2013.

Saturday's event was Toyosu's first ever New Year's Auction after the famous Tsukiji fishing market closed last year to become a temporary parking lot for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
