Queues outside popular restaurants can be for 2 hour long as they have limited capacity, seating 10 to 12 persons max at a time. Along the streets of Tokyo, its not uncommon to see vendors selling preserved titbits. One of our first few ‘scenic’ shots of Japan – the Lanterns and the Torii Gate, which separates the spiritual world from the mortal world. Tsukiji market, busy busy with people everywhere…for a good reason – seafood at its freshest!We had no idea the huge amount of picturesque opportunity that awaits us later on our trip. There were 2 hour queues outside some restaurants at Tsukiji but we queued outside this one for 20 minutes.Yokohama (横浜) is Japan’s second largest city with a population of over three million. In the ’80s, this was the tallest Ferris Wheel in the world with a height of nearly 400 ft. The huge Ferris Wheel is complemented by a large amusement park below.

Some photos to remind me of the exquisite sashimi we’ve had at this little-nondescript eatery with just a 20 minute queue but packed with locals. Locals, tourists, seafood, sashimi at its freshest…It reminded us of why we travel – to soak in the culture of a country and take in the myriad of unique experiences she has to offer.
Back home, every fish tastes almost the same but here, they are all unique. For these, Tsukiji has them all and though we were tired from the overnight flight, it was strangely invigorating!
