There are all sorts of things I could tell you about my trip to Tokyo, but at this point I’d like to tell you why it’s a good thing I didn’t go til now. I’ve mentioned before that I was slightly sushi-phobic up until last spring. Now I actually crave it and eat it once a week, but until last year this was not the case. On this trip I ate ramen and shabu-shabu, and I had breakfast at Macca’s every morning (because hell yes I ate brekke at Macca's every morning!), but the highlight of every day was finding a kaiten sushi (the kind with a conveyor belt) restaurant and feasting on some fresh, raw fish.
However - a word of warning. If you're doing kaiten sushi, you need to go to a busy restaurant. It's no good if the same plates are going around and around and never being eaten - remember, this is raw fish we're talking about. In Tokyo, kaiten sushi's the best! In Mongolia...well, sushi in Mongolia is a sketchy proposition anyways. Do yourself a favor and don't set yourself up for food poisoning. Not that I've known anyone who got food poisoning from Nagomi, but I don't want to be the first.
