Japan trip part 7 - Tokyo (Day 8)


After only 3 hours of sleep,
Joeanne and I woke up at 4.30am(!!!) to catch the earliest train to go to the famous Tsukiji Market.
*It was Joeanne's whole idea to go there*


Tsukiji Market is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world and according to Joeanne's Tokyo guide book, it is a place you must not missed.


If we were there earlier, we would get the chance to register and witness the giant tuna fish auction inside the auction area.
But since the train station only open at 5am, it was a bit late for us to register.. so we watched from the outside XD



What so special about this auction is that, some fish can be auctioned up till 1 million yen!
But only Joeanne interested in that =P
I'm only interested in the food.


But don't be fooled though...
Unless you're buying the raw stuff at the market itself, restaurants here are not cheap.
Though it is a 'market'.. it doesn't mean the restaurant sells cheap food too.
Their price is still expensive and can cost even more than the restaurants in Tokyo city! =_=


My verdict is... 2.5/5.
Fish Market is just not my thing :P
But it was an experience :)


At last, the time finally came to greet tokyo goodbye :(

We left for airport at 9am to catch the afternoon flight via the taxi van.


I really hope to be visiting Tokyo and other parts of Japan again one day.
But for the time being, I'm happy to be home and be by my BB's side again ^_^

PS: If should ever you needed help/got lost in Japan, just ask any Japanese citizen around. They are VERY helpful. Believe me.... I had never met citizens that are SO helpful in my entire life.
