Today was a busy but fun-filled day! We started the morning going to the Tsukiji Fish Market. There were SO many different fresh sea creatures for sale (some still alive). All the workers were busy milling around, and it was fun to look around at all the different things.

It’s nice to see that you are really enjoying the tour. My wife, sister, and I are taking the same tour in May and I was wondering how much of the language do you need to know to be able to really enjoy not only the escorted part of the tour but also the days where you get to wonder around. Also how is the internet connectivity and how do you make sure that you don’t get lost and are able to find your way back to the hotel(s)? How many people are in your tour group?
Really looking forward to seeing the rest of the updates about your tour.
Our tour is currently a full 16 people tour. I don`t speak any Japanese except hello, good morning, and thank you, and we seem to manage okay when we are on our own. Many people are very helpful, speak a little english, or use guestures. We seem to have internet connectivity at different ryokans, or a shared computer in the lobby (though I have only been at two ryokans so far, and I have my own wireless device. Your itinerary will have more details on each ryokan). In our groups, we are escorted around with the tour guide that gives us a good idea on how the subways work, so when it was time for us to be on our own, we figured it out just fine with a map. Thanks
