What are these black  spiky balls? The answer is sea urchin. Many unfamiliar fish and seafoods like eel, loach and octopus can be found in the inner market. It's very fun to encounter something new here.

<Tsukiji Festival>

Tsukiji Festival was held during this weekends, June 13 and 14 . It's a festival of Namiyoke shine which is located in the outer market. People in Tsukiji dressed up their festival custume called Happi coat and wore split toe shoes called Tabi. They were carring the portable shrine called mikoshi and the face of giant Shishi lion mikoshi on their sholders and walking around the town to pray for their bussiness success and express their gratitude toward Gods. It was a special moment for both residence and visitors in Tsukiji.Tsukiji Fish MarketTsukiji Fish MarketTsukiji Fish Market

Yukiko has great knowledge and expertise which made my tour very enjoyable. She speaks and understands english very well. I would never have seen all the things I saw or experienced without her help.

Yukiko took us through two whirlwind days around Tokyo. She was punctual, knowledgeable, and friendly! Just having her lead us through the public transportation nightmare that is the Tokyo transit system was worth every penny spent on a private guide. Thanks for an amazing trip!
