When Japanese plan events they sometimes can go big. Tsukiji sushi guy planned another seafood event in Higashi Ginza for a rather big group of people.
He mentioned the Maguro he purchased was around JPY 500,000 (USD 5K).
One thing I learned is that Japanese girls love to eat... sushi or champagne? They will most definitely go for food first.
I think people were scooping up the tender meat from the backbone of the tuna.
Next time I need to bring my Hydro Flask... Plastic cups tonight.
Uni and Ikura gone in seconds... girls are quick!!
But we knew the organizer so a plate of goodies arrived for us beer drinkers.
Another plate just for us! Lucky lucky.
Bingo contest for seafood and proscuitto... I actually won twice but shared my winnings with the crowd.
A famous comedian came by for the bingo contest... wow.
Someone is connected.
The key to Japan is learning the language one step at a time... Then a whole new world opens up with interesting events and friendly people who want to chat up the lone foreigner.
