I'm currently traveling in Japan, and since I've subjected youÂ to seven Armchair Field Trips in the last two weeks, I think instead I'll let you see for yourselves what I've been seeing, via pictures (mine) and links (from elsewhere).
We've already talked about wasabiÂ andÂ namako-kabe;Â now let's check out the ginormous early-morning Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, the biggest fish and seafood wholesaler in the world. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to transfer my pictures yet, so here are other people's:
A few links that will give you more of the flavor (pun intended):
- The official website
- A photographic tour
- A book review with loads of information
- Another photo tour of sorts
And here'sÂ a restaurant in the market where I had a delicious fishyÂ breakfast this morning!
