My homepage is about my travels. I hope you enjoy my pictures and some information. Maybe it inspires you a bit!

Tokyo Fish Market

You should be there around 4 am to get better chances to get in. There are only two groups of each 60 people allowed per day. Afterwards you can wait in line again for enjoying one of the best sushis at one of the few small sushi places within the Fish Market. I would say that you should not save on money here. Take the bigger plate to get the full enjoyment of real fresh fish!

Walking from the Yurikamome Line Station Shibaura-Futou (but you could also have a nice walk from JR Tamachi Station where you can have a nice lunch or look at some shops). It is also nice to take the
train to Odaiba having a great view of Tokyo and the Bay. Below a pic of the express way. It goes all around and fun to drive on. It is free of charge to use it and drive over the Rainbow Bridge. Heading to
the entrance door taking the elevator from second floor to the 7th to start the walk
