Up Close and Pesonal With Ahi

We’re seeing (and booking) more trips to Japan in the last several months. Without a doubt, Japan is a fascinating destination to visit, both to witness vestiges of its ancient culture and traditions, and to witness its modern day life. A few of our agents are actually departing for Japan next week.

If there’s one cuisine that seems to be winning over more and more fans it’s probably Japanese, sushi and sashimi in particular.

There’s no better place to get close to the fish business than the Tsukiji Market Tuna Auction in Tokyo.

The Observation Area for visitors had been temporarily closed to visitors to help ensure greater safety and efficiency for those working over the busy New Year season, and reopened on January 21, 2013.

There’s no doubt if you include a stop here when visiting Japan, you’ll have a greater appreciation when you next order some sushi.
