Tsukiji Fish Market. Tokyo, Japan

The largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world and although the visit can be stressful, it's a must visit destination (it's moving to a new location soon).

We arrived at around 6am, and found it all quite overwhelming. The traders are very busy and don't appreciate wandering tourists getting in their way, although one was very kind and showed me where the small sushi bars were located.

I had the freshest sushi breakfast of my life and didn't queue for two to three hours like everyone else either, but simply walked into one that had empty seats at the sushi counter. My chef was extremely friendly and entertaining, making my solo breakfast even more enjoyable.
