time for a breakfast we can trust....now how do you say "cook" my limp bacon? found the word for "char" the 2nd day we ate here.
They know how to say 'sorry' in Japan, but they never really figured out how to resolve what they were saying sorry for....In the US we don't even know how to say 'sorry' in Japanese. They have us beat in accommodation.
Yes, the gentleman on the left is there to assure that everyone can get inside...and he is happy to give a little push if everyone isn't properly tucked into the train.
getting close to the Tsukiji Fish Market
I think this might be a fish market sign?
of course by the time we got there the actual fish market was closed, but the outer market was busy w/ all kinds of selling activities.
What DO they put into their food?
just not sure.
down-town, Ginza area, department stores.
amazingly odd shaped buildings...
and more....had to take the photos to make sure I wasn't just dizzy...
The shops were name brand stores.....Armani, Christan Dior, etc. Clerks wore black suits and white gloves...purses at 3,500,000 yen ($35,000), watches at $65,000....
we shopped in the dept store basements for food (many had 3 basement floors full of food, 1 for sweets, 1 for bakery, 1 for fish and entre), then took it to the roof top and had a picnic. This shrine was on the roof w/ garden
a new law in Japan is to have roof gardens for insulation for the building and oxygen
When we were tired of not buying, we played in the bathroom. hehe
