Food in Tokyo – worth the wait

Asia, food

For any food place that is a bit more popular and well-known in Tokyo, be prepared to stand in line. Best bet is to go at odd times in between meal times and just expect to wait for a while. Other than that, delicious food is waiting for you! Noodles are a favorite of mine, be it the more traditionally Japanese soba (buckwheat noodles) or the more Chinese inspired ramen, they are comfort in a bowl. There are lots of really good noodle places, so take your pick and enjoy.

Street food in Japan

Asia, food, street

Tired from escaping the crowds at Senso-ji temple? The nearby street food stalls might not be less frequented but provide some much-needed fuel for a sightseeing day. Fried stuff, pancakes, the ever-so-popular seafood, there is something for everyone. Of course, each district will have plenty of takeaway food to satisfy you.

former Tsujiki Fish Market – street photography and fresh seafood

Asia, food, street

Although Tsujiki Fish Market (築地市場) relocated to Toyosu in 2018 and the sacred place closed its doors forever, the street stalls and restaurants surrounding the market are still in business. Tourists still come here for some of the freshest seafood and the atmosphere. The contrast of seafood cooking away on outdoor stoves and collection of closed-down stores makes for a great street photography session, fresh seafood included.
