Fishmarket

Last Night I didn't had any sleep... Reason? Fish market Tokyo!
The Tsukiji market is the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.
Everybody who I met told me "Ceesie, before you leave Tokyo you have to see the biggest fish market in the world". So last night me and my friend went for a little adventure....
I met my friend at 1 am, went for dinner, went to a bar and around 4 am we took a cab to the famous market.
What an experience it was. SOOOO big, SOOOO much fish and SOOOO many people.
We saw the big tuna auction , all different types of seafood and I even saw a man selling fresh pieces of whale... :-(
At the end we went for a sushi breakfast in one of the little sushi restaurants located around the fish market, so fresh and so taste full.
A must do if your in Tokyo! ;-)

It is such a good idea to stay up all night and see this phenomenon. It is really something to think about.

Maybe when you return to New York someday you will take me to the fulton fish market. this dispatch has got me wondrous about fish markets. I think that one of your attractive qualities is your interest in food and ability to cook.

Did it smell really fishy there? I personally don't like the raw fish smell.
