Japan

First thing I desperately wanted to eat was… SUSHI! I went to one of the sushi restaurants in Tsukiji, Tokyo.

Snapper (it came with scale – crispy!)
fish

Start off with: Egg with aosa, seaweed

Everything melted in my mouth… Especially aburi, light roasted tuna sushi was amazing!

On the next day, I woke up at 4am to see the Tsukiji fish market.

I have seen this scenery when I watched Sushi: The Global Catch. The way they inspect tuna is take a piece from tail, then knead or massage the piece to see the fat. Buyers also have a flashlight to see its colour as well.

Another snapshots from the market. They drive taaree in the market and there are very fresh vegetables in addition to fish.
