... this trip to Japan, we are surprised with more that we never even thought of!!
Tomorrow morning we rise early to take the boat back to the mainland and observe the fish market and tuna auction, which is supposed to be very lively this time of year, because the most highly prized type of tuna is being caught in April and early May, for sale at the market. We are excited to see this, since it is too difficult to experience this phenomenon at the Tuskiji market in ...

We spent the day in Shimo-Kitazawa whine was just 1 station from their house. It is a small hippy town with a lot of vintage secondhand shops. Very cute and a nice way to spend the day. We had lunch at a sandwich shop ...
