TOKYO, JAPAN

Post by Rebecca

Wow, Tokyo is amazing!  Really, it is so incredible!  We have been here just a few days, but we have already seen so much, and gone so many places.  My favorite so far is all the fish and seafood in the culture.  Every restaurant sells sushi, or fish of some sort, and the fish market is huge.  It’s amazing how many people are able to make a living revolving around fish - just by catching, cleaning, selling, or cooking fish.  We have already tried so many different kinds of fish: raw and cooked.  To be honest, I was scared to eat the raw fish at first, but it tastes delicious.

I loved everything we saw, the temples, fish, people, culture, busy streets, and all the other places here.  I noticed it is a lot less crowded than I thought it would be, and is also way cleaner and more orderly.  Tokyo is awesome, I love, love, LOVE it here!!
