Short Tokyo Getaway (Day 2): Tsukiji Market, Tokyo Disneysea

In the morning, we woke up bright and early to visit Tsukiji Market.  Okay… Not so bright and early (waking up early is not my forte).. By the time we got there, the tuna auction was over already, so we just took a walk around the market.

The mandatory thing to do at Tsukiji market is to eat sushi for breakfast.  And while the whole world is queueing for Sushi Dai and Sushi Daiwa, we didn’t want to spend hours in line as we were headed for Disney after this.  So we found a quiet restaurant and had our sushi breakfast.  Oh well… I guess not-so-crowded means not-so-good.  It was a forgettable meal.

After breakfast, we headed for Tokyo Disneysea.  I had visited Disneyland in my previous visit, so this time I wanted to visit Disneysea.

Disneysea was not as crowded as Disneyland.  But just like sushi, not-so-crowded meant not-so-fun.  It didn’t really have the whole Disney feel to it.  And unlike the parade at Disneyland, the parade featured floats on the water but they did not revolve around Disney cartoon themes.  It was just boats with Disney characters riding on them.

The good thing about the park being less crowded was that we did not have to queue long for rides (and could even go for second round on our favourite ones) and we had lots of photo opportunities with the mascots.

We stayed for the night parade, which again paled in comparison to Disneyland’s nightime Electrical parade.
