Questions, questions...

by stamporama

Will be in Tokyo next month and just need some advice here:

1) Do they still allow tourists in the auction area of the Tsukiji market? I read conflicting accounts where some say it's still allowed, others say not anymore. If that area has become off-limits to tourists then it is still worth the effort to get up early and visit the market?
2) I wish to see Mt. Fuji in all its splendor without climbing it. From Tokyo, what place could I go to on the JR line that offers a clear view of the mountain? Perhaps an elevated, suburban area would fit the bill?

Thanks for any info.

As far as I know, the Tsukiji fish market is open to tourists. To view the auctions, you need to be there very early. The tuna auctions are limited and you have to wait a long time to finally see it. However, the other auctions and the market area are still open. The best site for information, and a tour is:

I haven't taken his tour, but I'd recommend it to friends as it looks very good. If you venture on your own, you don't necessarily have to see the auctions themselves. You can just visit the market area. That's open all morning.

FUJI

One of the better places is to see it from Kawaguchi Lake. It's not too far, and it's near one of the hiking trails. You can also go to Kawaguchi-ko Gogome, which is about halfway up Mt. Fuji. You don't have to go up for a hike, just go and take a look. However, if you don't want to go all the way to Fuji, you can see it from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building in Shinjuku. The observation deck has nice views of Mt. Fuji, but beware that you'd have to go early in the morning in summer as by late morning, it's impossible with the smog.

Re: Questions, questions...

We lived in Japan when I was an infant (my dad was stationed in Yokohama) and I remember them saying that it was so rare for Fuji to come out of the clouds that it was very exciting indeed when the mountain decided to show itself! They did manage to capture it a few times on film and it is breathtaking but, again, a matter of chance.

Tsukiji Fish Market- Limited to 140 People Per Day As 0f 5/10/10

Hi,

Returned from Tokyo yesterday and visited Tsukiji auction. They have two sessions and only allow 70 tourists each session. There were about 40 tourists while we were there and there didn't seem to be much problem with people getting in. People arrived at different intervals and it wasn't a problem.

Personally, I thought it was worth the visit.

Re: Questions, questions...

by Belsaita

Hi! I visited Tsukiji 2 years ago so I don't know what are the 'new' rules, but even if you are not allowed to the fresh tuna auctions the visit is well worth it IMHO. For photo opportunities I actually liked better the frozen tuna area and auctions, with all the mist. And the people around the market, the living fish tanks... Go there as early as possible, we were leaving the place when many tourists who took the metro were arriving, all the most interesting action was already over by then. My friend had some sashimi and I had some udon (honestly I had too much fish for he day) at the stalls around the market before coming back to our hotel to have a nap
Good luck about Mt. Fuji. As said, most likely you will not see it... we certainly did not.

Travel Tips for Tokyo

Gift -giving & business cards.

by Lupercal

After going there the first time I was taken aback by
so much generosity. Almost everyone who expected us greeted us with beautifully wrapped gifts. Even a cashier in a gift shop gave me a gift just for browsing in her store!!! I was beginning to feel guilty! The Japanese are extremely gracious people. It's good to bring a few items, tokens of friendship (they don't have to be expensive) with you in case this happens it's always nice to reciprocate. Also make business cards -the swapping of business cards is a big ritual in meeting people. Even if you have just your name & address on it -you will probably find yourself in a position where you will be offered a card by someone, so you'll wanna do likewise. My friends!!! I made SO MANY GREAT FRIENDS THERE!!! Lotsa laughs, lotsa sake, lotsa good times.

ATM's in Japan

by machomikemd

remember that ATM's in japan are mostly local! you can only withdraw from international ATM locations in Airports, Major Rail Stations, Post offices and on 7-11 stores! when in major Rail Stations or Airports, look for international ATM consortium logos like Cirrus, Maestro, Mastercard, Discover, Plus and a lot more! you can withdraw up to 100,000 yen a transactions at international atms but they also have a transaction charge of 500 yen whatever amount you are withdrawing so if you are needing only small amounts then better to exchange money at money changing shops or hotels. again remember that international atm's only exist in 7-11 stores, post offices and major railway stations and airports so even if you see a familiar logo like mastercard or cirrus or plus at the atm and it is not on the places above, don't dare withdraw money ok!

also look for the english language button for english language translation in the lcd displays of atms!

Zojo-ji

by stonefree

Ok, Zojo-ji is not too famous among travellers, but, see the pic, this may be what you visitors expect for Tokyo, right? Temple and the symbolic tower with the adorable cherry blossoms...

Come in the middle of April. You may view the SAKURA at its peak. Nowhere else in Japan has such a complete / complex view. It's perfect.

Tokyo Tip

by Krystynn

And that's me in Asakusa.

There are many vendors/ stalls here selling first rate Japanese souvenirs. But like I mentioned earlier, they don't come cheap. Gina bought some Japanese origami that cost a bomb (in my opinion). I couldn't buy anything because I'd given all my cash to Gina (she loves Japanese stuffs, you see... and we didn't have time to go to the nearest ATM machine. Yet). Yes, great friends will make such sacrifices for one another. :-)))

Make a Wish or Say a Prayer at the Meiji Shrine

by Wild_Orchid

When you visit the Meiji Shrine, you could make a wish or say a prayer.

As you enter through the Torii Gate, at the Temizusha well ("the font for ablutions"), you must rinse your hands and mouth using water from the stone basin. You should not touch the dipper with your lips directly.

After that, if you want to make a wish, you could buy a small 3 inch by 2 inch polished wooden block. Upon this, write your wishes or prayers in black marker ink. Enter the temple grounds and hang your wish under the tree in the inner courtyard. In this way, when the shinto Monks say their prayers and do their daily chanting, they will be sure to ensure that the deities include habe taken note of your wishes or prayers.

How to pay respects: At the Main Shrine, you may throw some coins into the Offering Box. In front of the Main Shrine, you bow twice. Then you clap your hands twice. Finally, you bow once again.

May all your wishes come true!

Transport Tip: 1 min walk from JR Harajuku Station
or
1 min walk from Meijijingu-mae Subway on Chiyoda Line Exit 1/2
