Tsukiji Market

They say you're in the happiest place on earth whenever you visit Disneyland. But in may case, I'm at my happiest when I visited Japan's Tsukiji Market.

Tsukiji Market is best known as one of the world's largest fish markets, handling over 2,000 tons of marine products per day. It is scheduled to move to a new site in Toyosu in November 2016.

Believe it or not this is my first time to visit the market to think this is my 3rd time in Japan. I did not plan on seeing the tuna auction 'coz we're too lazy to be up before 5AM so we went around past 11AM to have brunch at the outer market that consists of small retail shops and restaurants.

I was expecting the market to look, feel and smell fishy but it was the exact opposite of what we saw that day. Everything's in order, very clean and neat talaga ng mga Japanese. :)

People started lining up in different restaurants. Super jampacked! And ang hirap pumili. Haha.

For our appetizer, we bought a freshly cooked tamago for only ¥100.

These freshly grilled Hiroshima oysters are soooo good that I can eat them all in one sitting. They cost ¥500 each. Mahalia jackson!

But since our goal in Tsukiji Market is to have brunch, we just ordered a huge bowl of Chirashi-don.

Ordering a chirashi is a great way to taste ALL the fresh seafood caught that day. ANG SARAP. Period. Bring me back to Japan please?!
