Planet of Doom


Posted on April 11, 2011

The end of the most valuable and important trip of my life. After dreaming to come here since I first saw and read into Japan as a young kid, this has been an experience of a lifetime and a trip I will never forget. I'm sure I'll be back, but you never forget your first time. In any case, we made the most of it.

First thing in the morning we headed to Tsukiji and went to Daiwa, one of the most popular sushi restaurants in the Tsukiji area. There is usually a two hour wait, somehow we beat the rush and made it in after only 5 minutes.


The most exquisite toro I've ever had.

This was still moving.

What are the odds?

We really wanted to do the tourist thing and check out the indoor Tsukiji area. I'm usually not a big fan of doing the general traveler activities, but this was a world I'd never seen before.

I don't even know how you'd use a blade that big.

Styrofoam mountain.

Styrofoam crew.

Later Japan.
