Tokyo is a wonderful city

Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station were the main areas where I spent my time in October 2016. Three nights and 2 days is just not enough time to fully enjoy this great city. It was however my staring point for my 2 week 6 city adventure on the Shinkansen or bullet train. 

I travelled to 6 interesting Japanese cities, includung Kanazawa, Hiroshima, Kumamoto, Kagoshima, Nagasaki & Fukuoka

Sushizanmai

The eel is absolutely fabulous

Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station Around the Tsukiji market area there are many sidewalk stores selling fresh seafood. The huge market was supposed to relocate by now, the 81-year old fish market is one of the largest of its kind in the world and is a Tokyo cultural icon.

Many stores will cook for you

The theatre dates to 1889 & has been destroyed by fire, earthquakes and war. It re-opened in 2013 and attracts 900,000 visitors a year.

Tokyo love buildings with a twist

 Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station

One of the great attractions in Japan is seeing the oild and the new.

The Ginza

Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station Back in the 1990s real estate in the Ginza was unbelievably expensive, one square meter of land was over 100 million yen. Prices now in 2016 have fallen dramatically however the area is still very expensive.

You can buy anything in the Ginza

 Kayo & I at a Spanish restaurant

Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station Close to my hotel there were a number of restaurants including this Spanish one.

Kayo had a snack & I stuck to the beers & red wine.

Instead of Spanish I chose a busy noisy Japanese restaurant

Tsukiji Sushi Teriyaki Tokyo Station I had only been in Tokyo 24 hours so I was craving Japanese food. 

Shumai?
