A Day in Tokyo 1

A Day in Tokyo 1

16th May 2009 – Intended to wake up early at 4.30am to go Tsukiji fish market (the world’s biggest fish market) to view the famous tuna auction but due to the tiredness we sustained during yesterday’s shopping, we missed hearing the alarm clock ring and only managed to wake up at 6.30am. Despite this, we still hurried along. Ha ha! This is our 2nd day usage of the 2-Day Tokyo Metro Open Ticket and we took from Ueno station to Tsukiji station on Tokyo Metro Hibiya Line.
