Harajuku is the place to be on Sunday afternoon if you want to see some locals or even foreigners dress up in cosplays. It is quite a scene.

Part 3) Tokyo fish market
Woke up at 6:30am today to head over to the fish market where most of tokyo businesses and supermarkets get their little fishies from. There are a couple of really really popular sushi joints at the market that serves fresh sushi for breakfast. Apparently, people wait 2 to 5 hours in line for it. Lucky for us, we only waited for about 45 mins or so starting at 8:30am. I must say it was the best sushi I have ever eaten and it was super cheap (46,000yen or $46usd for about 10 awesome pieces of sushi) consider the fish are super fresh. After breakfast, we walked around the market where the fishermen cut up giant tunas and pack them up to deliver them to businesses. 

Afterwards, we walked around town.
