Tsukiji Market Tokyo Tuna
[Smoking a cigarette and slicing up a tuna? You’ll see it at Tsukiji!]

Long time no blog, hey? Sorry guys!

Well I’ve finally got some good news. Fig & Cherry is taking a world tour! First stop Japan (obviously, see pic above), then Barcelona, London, Stockholm, Budapest, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Las Vegas, LA then back home in time for Christmas.

I’ve been in Tokyo the last 4 days and I’m currently in Kyoto. In fact, I’ve just had lunch at the famous Roan Kikunoi. It was a traditional kaiseki meal which is a degustation using the freshest seasonal ingredients. I’ll explain in more detail in my post next week – wait until you see the photos, you’ll drool!

Until I get a chance to post up all my adventures please enjoy this funny shot I took of a man at Tsukiji market slicing up a fresh tuna. I’ve got loads more pics of the market, including the frantic tuna auction, so stay tuned.

Chat soon, Christie x
