Continuing on with the Japan adventures! If you guys haven’t already read about my first evening there, you can find that post here. We were in Tokyo for 2.5 days, and today I’ll be sharing what we did our first FULL day there. The corresponding itinerary (including maps/directions) has also been uploaded to my Itineraries page, which you can find here (Tokyo Day 2).
Deciding what time we wanted to go to the Tsukiji Market was probably one of the hardest decisions we had to make on this trip. Everybody talks about the tuna auction that happens at 5am in the morning. Which means in order to get tickets (they only had out 120 a day), you basically have to get there at 3am. And since we had just landed in Japan the night before already running on basically no sleep, we decided to not pull two all-nighters in a row. But the decision was not easy! I hear they’re closing down this iconic market soon and moving it somewhere else. So if you’re thinking about doing it, DO IT. If I go back to Japan again before they close down, I’m definitely doing it.
