Unfortunately you must get tickets to get there for the actual fish auction. Not to mention it started at 5am and we were wiped from the last 3 days. Instead, we headed down there around 9ish after the auction had ended. There were some really unique sights to see. The fish was very cheap and looked amazing to me. We walked around trying our hardest to find Sushi Dai- the place that was rated best sushi in the world. Unfortunately, we never found it, but we stopped in another sushi place in the market instead. We figured any sushi here would be the best we've ever had. So we stopped in a tiny little place without a line in front. And yes, I'm 5 months pregnant. Yes you're not supposed to have sushi when you're pregnant due to the risk of freshness and mercury. But if you can't get fresh sushi from the fish market in Tokyo, you're not finding it anywhere else in the world. And so I indulged. It's not like I eat it every day. And gosh darn it- it was worth every bite.
Next stop was Asakusa, the home of the famous Kannon buddhist temple. It is a beautiful place with some great shopping. I ended up leaving with a large beautiful wood block print that I plan on getting matted and framed when I get home. I sure do love all the treasures I've found in Asia. We spent a couple hours walking around the shops and exploring the beautiful temple. It was a beautiful place to be and I am glad I got to see it in my travels.
