As promised, the final post for the #kgasia2012 trip.
With a little over two days left on this amazing journey, we figured we’d check out one last sight before calling it and relaxing for the remainder of our time there. The Tsukiji Fish Market was something we’d all wanted to check out after seeing clips on what seems like every food or travel related television show. Although our timing sucked and we ended up making to the market later than we wanted, we were still about to roam around and see how the operation was run. In between all of the walking, we stopped at one of the many sushi restaurants to grab what we figured would be the freshest sushi we’d ever have. We browsed the menu, made our selections and impatiently waited. Everything was… incredible!

After our visit to the fish market, we made our way back to Roppongi to check out the Marni and COMME des GARÇONS stores and check out a few other places. We ended up heading back to Shibuya for the rest of the evening to hang out and grab some dinner.
One our final full day we decided to venture out in the freezing rain to check out Sarashina Horii, a soba restaurant that Kim had been ranting and raving about ever since she saw it on Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. Since I was freezing, I figured I’d go with the kake soba topped with duck which was pretty damn. Everyone got down on their soba and we ventured back out into the frozen tundra… or maybe it was light snow flurries.
Next stop, Akihabara, the electronics district. We did a little shopping, bought some souvenirs and Kim and I headed back to the Shibuya while Warren and Rachel stayed around Akihabara.
The final day we woke up to finish packing and made our way to Shibuya station to catch the Narita Express to the airport.
In the end it was sixteen days, four countries, six airplanes, a trio of bullet trains, dozens of subways and one incredible journey! Thanks for following along on this overdrawn trip, hopefully you enjoyed looking at the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. Stay tuned, I’m hoping there’s a whole lot more traveling to be done!
