Almost over. Sadly. Three weeks in the blink of an eye. On my last real day (tomorrow will be all airplane) I wandered. I'm good at it. So good infact, that I wandered to the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hill. This is less a hill and more a self contained skyscraper. It has homes, offices, shops, entertainment, and food. I was only there for the view. 52 stories up and tokyo is pretty pretty.
Then it was raining and I am museumed, art gallaryed and shopping malled out. So I went to Toho. The theater boasting Japan's larges movie screen. I don't know if I was seated in front of "the largest" one, and for Japan's sake I hope not. But it made me feel better about my tv at home.

Get to the fish market early. Early in the morning and early in your trip. Early in your trip because then the jet lag is still on your side. you are awake at 4am anyway. might as well go to the fish market. Early in the day, because now they require a pass to see the actual auctions and it is first come first serve. the tickets are available at 5:15. I got there at nearly 7. Sold out. So I wandered the outer market instead. Luckily I was able to see the auctions last trip.
