Tokyo Highlights

Seeing original Utagawa Hiroshige ukiyo-e at Ukiyo-e Ota Memorial Museum of Art in Harajuku;
Eating sushi at Sushi Dai Wa inside the Tsukiji Fish Market at 6 in the morning;
Meeting Sue and her wonderful fam.

Shiatsu full body pummelling;
Happening upon the Sanja Matsuri unexpectedly and seeing old Edo come to life;
Eating hibachi grilled food at Ohmatsuya robata-yaki right along side the Sony Building in the upmarket Ginza shopping area.

Miniature plastic dolls house food from Kiddy Land...actually, all of Kiddy Land was pretty speco;
Playing with the old-fashioned toys at the Shitamachi Museum;
The Flying Fox at the playground in Hibiya Park.

Off to Disneyland tomorrow.



  1. I'm drooling over the sushi. . .

  2. Fantabulous!!

    Sushi at 6.00am?! Porridge doesn't quite compare! :)


  3. Like Melanie, I was thinking my morning cereal was a little boring in comparison to your lovely food choices.
    It is great that you met Sue. You seem to be having such a terrific time. Glad you are also able to blog and let us know.
    Take good care ~ all of you.

  4. Jeanne,

    Thanks for taking us along with you on your holiday. :)
    Glad you are all having a marvellous time.

  5. I'm drooling over the sushi too as it's close to lunch time here but can't imagine having it for breakfast though:)

  6. Sushi for breakfast reminds me of Frog Congee for breakfast in China. Give me sushi any day.

  7. Have a wonderful time at Disney! I'm visiting from Sue's place and looking over your trip. :)

  8. The food and the toys sound SUPER!

  9. Hi Jeanne and Co.,
    What a time you are having! Thanks for sharing it with us.
    God Bless.

  10. My daughters loove sushi (tuna, lettuce and some mayo) although are decidedly hesitant when presented with wasabi.
    Lovely presentation and detail.


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
