Can we do a guided tour of the Tokyo Fish Markets?
MY HUSBAND AND I ARE AGED 70 AND EXPERIENCED TRAVELLERS. WE WILL BE IN TOKYO FOR THREE DAYS AND THE SAME IN HONG KONG AT THE BEGINNING AND END OF A CRUISE. IN TOKYO WE WANT TO SEE CULTURAL AND HISTORIC SITES AND ESPECIALLY THE TSUKIJI FISH MARKET. WE ARE STAYING AT THE PARK HOTEL LOCATED OVER SHIODOME STATION. WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND? SUGGESTIONS FOR TOURS OR PLACES NOT TO MISS?
