Photo by myself in Shibuya, in Tokyo, Japan.
Greetings from Japan! I will be posting from various parts of Japan for the next several days. Mark and I are traveling through Tokyo and Fukuoka for vacation.
When we landed after a 13-hour flight, it was 3:00 pm. We stayed up until 10:30 pm or so, which is 9:00 am, New York time. We're staying in Shibuya, a district in Tokyo that is known for crowds of 20-something year olds, bright lights, eateries and tons of stores.
For dinner we managed to find a tiny restaurant specializing in ramen noodles. We had noodles with pork, egg and sliced scallions in a rich broth. Mmmm....
This restaurant seats about ten, crowded around a narrow bar.
Perhaps the most scrumptious bowl of ramen I've ever had.
We have at least one of these stores in Manhattan. Strangely this one had a Brooklyn sign in front (lower left).
More tomorrow, about our busy day today, which started out at 5:30 am at the Tsujiki Fish Market.
