Tsukiji Fish Market, Japan

When I think of Dr Seuss’s One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish book, I am convinced he spent a day at Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo. Tsukiji is the largest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world, located in the Tsukiji section of Tokyo between the Sumida River and the Ginza shopping district. The market has two sections, the Inner and the Outer markets. The Inner is where the licensed wholesale dealers operate stalls and where auctions are held. The coveted Blue Fin tuna auctions are the biggest. The Outer Market was the section for the general public. The market was a major tourist attraction for both domestic and overseas visitors. It opened in 1935 and closed in 2018, moving two miles away to the new and twice-as-large Toyusu Market.

The Best Sushi in Bensalem, Pa.

This past weekend, while perusing menus from the local Chinese and pizza restaurants, I came across an old favorite — Shogun. Shogun is a Japanese steakhouse and sushi restaurant with the option of hibachi, located on Street Road. For me and many others in the area, Shogun is well-known as the best place to get sushi. Its sushi is always fresh and made-to-order. You can either order takeout or dine in. I enjoy eating at the restaurant because the dimmed lights, Japanese decorations and the exciting hibachi make for a great atmosphere.
