I was told that more than 3 fish market pictures was boring. So if this applies to you, you're done now. For bigger fish fans, the Tsukiji fish market, the biggest in the world, is my favourite Tokyo attraction. Between 5 and 6:15am (yes, we made it), you can witness the tuna auction:Once auctioned, the tunas get cut with huge knives.We'll skip some steps, but here is what's offered for breakfast. If your attention span can handle more, it's here.

Tokyo provides photogenic nights, above, and days with big-eyed green freakdolls. Upon arriving in Tokyo we immediately went to the Tanuki & Plastic Food Store neighbourhood, wouldn't you? I just couldn't get these darn raccoon dogs to look for the picture.The restaurant district also sells the biggest and most expensive knives I've ever seen (Look at Barry's reflection in the glass for perspective).How do you like your squid? Perhaps white, dried and on the street?Tokyo, one of the world's biggest cities. 4-digit license plates.
More of Tokyo's oddities are here.
