A very nice hotel - it was arranged by our tour guide and price was included in the trip so I don't know how expensive it was.

Another great SUNs (Single & Unaccompanied NCOs) Trip! This trip was originally called "Man vs. Food & Wild Snowmobiling Excursion", but after a less than stellar review of the 2 Foot Tall "Mt. Hakodate Burger", the food only became a challenge if you were not a seafood lover. ...but more of that later.
We started off departing …
... retail store carried literally thousands of them displayed for as far as the eye could see. We came close to buying one shaped like a Faberge egg, but the words "dust-collector" came to mind, so it was not to be.
Now, we find ourselves in Tokyo with a myriad of choices for how we will spend our 5 days here. So much to see, so much to do, so little energy. But, we'll do our best, and you'll read about it in our next blog ...
... to the Donburi Yokocho Market. It's the Hakodate Morning Market of fresh seafood. There is an abundance of fresh fish stalls and small eateries where they cook your fish fresh. In most of the windows are plastic models of the food on offer and the price. Generally you are looking at 5 kinds of seafood, Sea Urchin, Salmon Roe, scallops, Salmon, crab, raw squid etc and rice for around ¥1500 ( $15.00) I do want to try the crab so I chose a crab ...
After the impressive Nebuta festival we made a tour to the museum and the fish market which is located in the ground floor of a departement store in Aomori.
We saw impressive loads of seefood, rogues, fish, shells, and things we don't know what they are. You could even eat there, but we have had breakfast at the hotel
... are many shops selling fresh fish (seafood) to whoever. And by fresh I mean fresh. A lot of the fish, crabs, squid, shellfish etc. were still alive. And in many of the places they would cook it for you ( extra price no doubt) and you could eat it there ( standing of course - no just kidding. Some places had chairs and tables). The size and scope of the market puts the Auckland one to shame, and this town only has a population of 300,000.
