1542-Toyko – Japan

Our second stop was in Tokyo. Our goal for stopping in Japan was to try blow fish of Fugu. Unfortunately, we arrived on the absolute worst day of the year. It was a Friday, and Christmas weekend, but was the day of the Emperor’s birthday. This is the largest celebration day in Japan and every restaurant was booked in advance with large parties. The concierge at the hotel worked for an hour trying to get us in somewhere – but no luck. We eventually ordered room service and went to bed to get up early for our flight to Delhi.
