Visiting Taipei after a week in Japan is like going to Six Flags after a week at Disneyland. Not as much magic, but the rides will blow you away.
The shinkansen is probably the Japanese technological achievement of which I am most jealous. Other than giant building-sized robots that can beat up Godzilla.
Tokyo is a massive consumer of seafood. Only a few tourists every day have the opportunity to see the tuna auctions, and I was determined to be one of them.
This post does feature fish parts as a central theme, so if you’re squeamish, vegan, or otherwise opposed to seeing said fish parts, maybe it’s best if you wait for the next post.
Our visit to Tokyo came with quite a few opportunities to be afraid of heights.
Most of the time folks see London during the day, in between museums and tourist attractions. But if you stay out late enough (past the point when all the pubs close), you may see a totally different side of this beautiful city.
