Tokyo, Japan

Posted by Joseph

I thought that Tokyo was a really cool place to visit.  I really have had fun seeing all their famous sights and walking around the city.  We went to a fish market this morning, the Sensoji Temple in the afternoon, and Tokyo Tower.  I really liked the fish market.  It was the only thing that I have experienced in Tokyo that wasn’t orderly.  By that I mean that everything just seems to run smoothly and efficiently, and there are signs all over the place telling you to walk on this side of the sidewalk and things like that.  The fish market was really cool because everything was crazy.  It was everyone just wanting to get their fish as fast as possible and not really worrying if you were in the way.

 

So far, I have really been impressed with how well the people understand English.  I also think for such a big city, it is surprisingly clean and orderly.  The people are really nice.  I also think it’s cool about how much seafood is eaten here.  Everywhere you go there is sushi and seafood and all of it is really good.  Tokyo is a really neat place and fun to visit.
