Hi there folks, today I’m gonna start on something I’ve been putting off for quite a while now: The actual writeup on my 2014 Around-the-entire-Island Japan trip.

And before I go into the actual trip, let’s go into a little background shall we?

JDay 3 – The Beach… is Freezing Cold

So, day three, and I’m off to Kamakura and Enoshima, though I woke up a tad late so I only began the journey at 10, which was smack dab in the middle of the Tokyo Morning Rush. Even the “limited express” train to Fujiwara (en route to Kamakura) – which is considerably a distance away from Tokyo – was quite full. Read the rest of this entry »

So, done with my first day, I woke up in the wee hours the next day (read: after 7) and headed out to Tsukiji for a sushi breakfast. Above is how the market looks like when I arrived.

Yes, it was a cold rainy day in Japan. I wonder how I woke up at all. Despite that, I quickly found my way to Sushi Dai and got my RM160 (¥4000) “omakase” (read: the “I trust you, Mr. Itamae – chef – so don’t kill me” set) for breakfast. Everything was fresher then fresh and the “Uni” (sea urchin) paticularly was sweet and delicious.

I wonder why the Uni we (me and my family) had back in Yokohama 7 years ago was so… fishy.

Anyhow, pictures were prohibited in Sushi Dai, so you’ll just have to trust my words. Though that has to be one of the most expensive breakfasts in my entire life, I could say it was well worth it.

Why Sushi Dai? No idea, it was either that or Daiwa Sushi, and I’ve heard that Dai has better variety. Plus I forgot I actually wanted to go to another place to avoid lining up, thankfully there were no lines over at Dai anyway.

My tummy filled with raw, squirming fish, I moved on to other places. More after the jump…

JDay 1 – Being overly Excited is Never Good for a Traveller

The above is the first thing I shot while being on Japanese soil. Waiting for the bus to Terminal 1 (because the Terminal 2 customer service center only opens after 10.30am, come on JR?).

More in depth report of my first day after the warp…
