Tokyo day 3 the fish market and Buddha

Yesterday we were up and ready to go by 6am so we could make it to the fish market. The fish market is HUGE! It’s aisles and aisles of fresh fish, fruit, and lots of crazy looking items. If you don’t watch your step you will get hit by a car haha

Seriously though, the market is very fast paced and exciting. I’m just glad we ate our sushi breakfast before we went to the market(there’s lots of fish guts and parts everywhere!)

After we had had enough of the market we journeyed to see some more temples and of course the big Buddha.

I love all the symbolism behind the temples. We went into this cave where there’s walls of tiny figurines. Each one represents someone deceased and is a place for their spirit to dwell.

Yesterday was one of our hottest days, so we got some shaved ice and donuts. I had no idea Japanese donuts were sooo good!

It’s been fun getting to chat with my mom and j every morning. I miss him like crazy but it makes it so much easier knowing he’s having a blast with my parents.

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.
