Tsukiji Fish Market






Millions of fish and seafood go to the Tsukiji fish market every morning. Thousands of people go there to buy and sell the fish and seafood. If you want to go there, you need to get up unbelievably early. The hustle and bustle starts at 4:30 am, and keeps on going until about 9:30 am. The market sells seafood of all kinds from all over the world. There are octopuses, clams, and every kind of fish you can imagine, including the blue-finned tuna which comes from Boston. It is one of the best tunas you can get, and it sells for thousands of dollars in Japan. Before the Japanese discovered it in Boston, Americans used it in cat food. If you want to buy good fish, go to the Tsukiji market.

Hi Sophia,

I've read all your posts since you started and am enjoying both your photos and your writing. I'm especially enjoying your commentary on the things that are quirky or oddities to Americans but are par for the course for Japanese (e.g.,3,000 people crossing at an intersection, high-tech and low-tech toilets).

I hope you keep blogging even after you return to the US, as I'm sure with your keen eyes and writing ability, you'll have something interesting to say.

Honey: Honey is the best natural skincare product that helps keep the skin soft and supple.
A beaten egg or egg yolk hydrates dry skin. You can also run the product that you are interested in with your family
doctor or dermatologist.

Dumbbells are a great way to lose weight and get your body in shape.
After all, what are the chances that you would draw the one and
only room in a 200-room, five-star hotel whose weight room is located directly above your head.
Dumbbell Squat: Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder width apart.

The organization should focus on customer satisfaction.
A 2 psi loss is 5% of the pressure in a 40 psi tire and a 6%
loss for a 34 psi tire. There are many techniques that could be
used in shot blasting; the bigger particle can be divided into fine
pieces using wheel blasting techniques, hydro blasting ice blasting etc.

And this is the perfect place to do it. Then take white paint and make stitch marks along the edge (little dashes along the edge) If you wanted you can outline the heart in black as well.

You can add some metallic touches with gold or silver acrylic paint before you clear coat the Pea
Gravel chargers.
