Let us get out of my last two toxic posts before. It’s tiring to remember anyway.
How about a memory from my first time arriving in Tokyo? The moment that I hardly believe has passed for three years. Yes, exactly three years ago. Wow. How can time fly this fast? In three years, I see my new born baby niece to a cheerful talk-active little girl, or my growing nephew from elementary school to intermediate, from a mama’s boy to a teenager who refuses to be dropped up to his school’s gate. As for me, for the last three years, I’ve been in two different companies. Awch, that’s life. Life.
Back to my first time in Japan in general and Tokyo for specific, which I posted here before. This time I choose 2 pictures that represent one of my most my memorable moments during my first holiday there.
Tsukiji Fish Market, April 26th, 2013.
This picture was captured by one of my travelmate, Bertho, a picture of the main chef of Yamazaki Sushi Bar at Tsukiji Fish Market, Tokyo. It captured well what I first thought as the outstanding hospitality of Japan’s restaurant.
Yamazaki Sushi was not the first choice of my friends and I, to have our first sushi experience in Japan, but the place close to it. Our first choice was so crowd with the other customers while our hungry stomachs couldn’t wait a little longer. So, we chose Yamazaki instead, simply for it had fewer queues. Fortunately, we didn’t disappoint with our decision. We still had great first experience of tasting sushi. The sushies were all fresh and satisfying, including those fish’s eggs. Moreover, I liked the habit of both chef and his assistant. Despite of our inability speaking Japanese, the chef always showed and explained us first each seafood before his skillful hands turned it into delicate sushi. 🙂
