I am sure that some of you would have realised that I never talked about the food in Japan. I am saving the best for last.
As a family we are all a fan of Japanese food therefore we thought we should not have any problem with food during our trip. Nevertheless we still brought we us plenty of sustenance from home. You know. The usual stuff; instant noodles and ready to eat rice, etc. But of course we must try the local shashimi and ramen. The real thing I would say.
My daughter Hanna who planned the trip was told that one of the best shashimi one can get is at the fish market. So off we went in search of the freshest salmon shashimi and and grilled octopus, another family favourite. And we were not disappointed.
We went to Tsukiji Fish market. And even stop over at the wet market.
We also had the chance to try out the full set meal in a couple of local halal restaurant. And they were goooood!
Other than food, I thoroghly enjoyed watching the street. Quaint shops as well as typically Japanese houses with aesthetic doorways.
A week is never enough to explore more but then it gives plenty of excuses to come back. At least I can now checked Japan in my list.
