Tokyo is easily my all-time favorite city to visit. Every time I go there I immerse myself in endless exploration and always discover new and amazing things. On my most recent trip I finally visited the world famous Tsukiji Fish Market, and was blown away by its enormity. I ate at a prison-themed restaurant, stopped in at my favorite vintage gaming store, saw the giant Gundam robot, and, thanks to a friend at Pink Tentacle, discovered an absolutely incredible vintage shopping mall in Odaiba. Walking through another culture's nostalgia is surreal to say the least.
