Basashi isn't that bad actually. I thought it'll be tough but not really. Uni (sea urchin) OTOH, no thanks.

Did you try shirako (fish sperm)? That was...interesting.

No...not knowingly anyway:(

I did get treated to a Fugu sashimi+grilled+skin set dinner and commented that it tasted like rubber. Had no idea it was so expensive and prepared by licensed chef's  so it's stupid expensive.

A kinda faux pas that makes the folks treating you laugh with a polite go eat a cheeseburger white boy!! vibe :D

So I took a subway in Tokyo to meet my friends at night. At exactly 11:30pm, it stopped at the next station, the conductor comes around saying something in Japanese which I don't understand. It meant 11:30pm, get off the subway train. So I get off and walk.

I got the same end of the line experience:D

 

Lucky some cop didn't stop you randomly to ask if you had your Gaijin card. They have the right and if you don't have it your night can be worse than a long walk:(

Finding a real large size drink in Japan can be a challenge...I was grinning ear to ear when I saw that big cup.

It's the small things in life sometimes:tongue:

I like the packaged octopus and squid snacks. And the vending machines, they're everywhere on the sidewalks. From cigarettes, beer to even clothes.

They used to have used teenage girl's underwear vending machines:p

These went extinct in the late 90's to early 2000's I believe.
