Japan Dec 2012 Day 10: Katsuura Market, Roppongi Hills, Tokyo


Before catching the long train to Tokyo via Nagoya, we dropped by at Katsuura fish market for some tuna action. This market is supposedly the largest in Japan for fresh tuna.





By the time we arrived in Tokyo, it was late afternoon so after checking into our Sunroute Hotel (Shimbashi) and resting for a while, we headed to Roppongi hills 六本木ヒルズ (on Hibiya line) to check out Tokyo City View, an observatory on the 52nd floor where you can see Tokyo tower and its surroundings. As it was also the 110th anniversary of Disney, we bought some memorabilia from the Sky Dream shop. It costs JPY 1, 500 per person for the observatory, art museum and sky dream shop.

Dinner was our usual kurobuta shabu shabu at ichi-ni-san which I blogged about here. This time, we went to another branch at Ginza Inz, in Ginza, just one stop away from Shimbashi on the Tokyo metro subway. After getting off at Ginza station, head to exit C9 and the shop is just at the exit, which leads to B1 of the building. It costs about JPY 3, 000 per person for a dinner set. Worth every penny!
