Rising Sun: Sashimi Don

After visiting Leornardo, we went to the Ueno market. I had forgotten how busy it could be. After looking at all the fish, frozen and fresh, vegetables and the smorgasbord of edible and wearable items, we were quite pleased to chance upon this really busy stall that served sashimi on rice for a song! We paid and sat down, drank the iced roasted rice tea, chowed down our sumptious meal and left. It was that kind of place as it was really busy and customers ate quickly to make way for others. In the kitchen, the production line worked non-stop, serving out the meals. That was going to be our last meal in Japan as we were leaving that evening and I was very glad that we had sashimi.

Hawkers peddling their wares. In this case it was nuts and packaged foods.
