Sushi for Breakfast!

Afflicted with lingering jet lag, we visited Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market, one of the largest wholesale fish markets in the world, at about 6:30 in the morning. Hundreds of headless, tail-less, flash frozen Ahi tuna are lined up in a building that resembles a hanger and auctioned off to the highest bidder beginning at 3:30 a.m. We stopped off afterwards at a sushi bar to eat the freshest Toro (fatty tuna) I`ve ever tasted. Given the hour, I restrained Heather from ordering a small bottle of saki, and we had Japanese green tea instead.
