Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo

Fellow foodies and travelers...
Come join me as I explore the world's the largest fish market in Tokyo!
See the sights, taste the bites and feel the vibes at the remarkable Tsukiji Market!

We're not particularly good at getting up early so we just skipped 
the ridiculously early morning tuna auction.
Still, Tsukiji Market is definitely worth visiting even after the auction is over.
 We spent 2.5 hours wandering through the outer markets.
I got really excited, this is heaven for me! 
Just too many things to see and try but we have so little time.
We still need to rush back to Ginza
for a lunch booking at Beige Alain Ducasse.

Hot and delicious beef stew with rice for breakfast 
sounds so much better than cereal.

Tamago with Light Soy Sauce for only 100 yen a piece!!!
