Trying out the local food
Arriving in Tokyo!!
We are heading from Tokyo to Mounti Fuji back to Tokyo. Then we head over to Kyoto then to Hiroshima and again back to Tokyo to catch our flight home.
Finally, after our 12 and a half hour flight we arrived in Tokyo! Let me tell you, its crazy here compared to Calgary, I have never seen so many people walking the streets or seen as many giant buildings in my life. When you arrive it is a bit of a culture shock, everyone always seems to be in a hurry unlike back home, where everyone takes their time to do almost everything.
Today we are focusing on experiencing the culture by tasting some of their wonderful food and walking around checking out some of their shops hopefully without getting lost! Everyone knows one of the main foods in Japan is obviously sushi and sake, but the stuff we eat back home doesn’t even compare to flavors you get here! It’s amazing!! Another dish we experienced is called Okonomiyaki, which translates to “cook what you like”, which is a pancake that you can pick seafood, vegetables, and other meats to put in it while it is being cooked up right in front of you at your table. It might sound a little different, but it’s perfect for people travelling on a budget because it’s cheap, tasty, and very filling.
Alright well I’ve been on here long enough for today, we’re going to go check out the entertaining nightlife in Tokyo tonight and go on the Asakusa walking tour tomorrow!
We’ll keep you all posted back home!!
