Day 2: Rainy & Fishy

We had an early start today... woke up at 4am to go to Tsukiji fish market to see the tuna auction and for the crazy experience (made even more crazy by the everlasting torrential downpour courtesy of the nearby Typhoon)

Killing, butchering the fish

Nom Nom!

...had a fantastic sushi breakfast at the market with Amy and Gareth, a really cool Brit that we met at our hotel. Tried whale... interesting.

Directing the crazy traffic at the fish market.

After, the rain stopped and we walked around Shibuya and Shinjuku areas for most of the day. My cell phone died otherwise I'd have posted more photos...when we get back we'll post pics from our real cameras.

  1. Brian, a short 20 years ago we had just returned from our trip to Glacier National Park. On that trip, you defined the term 'picky eater'. Cool that a short time later, you're trying whale at a fish market.

  2. indeed... both Mia and Japan have helped to broaden my tastes, although age had something to do with it as well I'm sure.
