When you’re waiting in line to get into the best sushi restaurant/bar/kiosk at Tsukiji Fish Market in the middle of winter, you best be sure you’re dressed warmly. I’m not going to go into too much detail of my experience at the-freshest-sushi-I’ve-ever-had fish market because that deserves its own post. No, this is going to be how glad I was that I layered because although the sun was out and the fact that the temperature is no where close to Canada’s Polar Vortex (-30°C people!), standing in line for nearly five hours (that’s right, five whole hours!) takes staying warm, stamina and well, a lot of patience. Knowing I would be outside for the suggested wait time of three hours according to my travel guide (I was so fooled!), that morning I threw on my much-coveted grey coat, my blanket scarf that I got in another colour (don’t judge!), and my favourite blue suede bag for that pop of colour that my outfit was in dire need.
Thanks for reading!
Till next time,
