It is a serious business this grading Tuna
I forgot to mention - when standing in the queue for the Tuna auction the people in front said "so you were here for our last earthquake" - so I was right Mr Fairbairn, it was an earthquake and for once I was not exaggerating (which I must admit is a first).
Anyway downloaded another picture from the auction for you as it is an amazing sight and we have also been told that they are moving the fish market in the very near future and when they move it they will no longer let the public in.
We have now arrived in Kyoto by the bullet train which is an amazing journey, Richard Branson take a leaf out of the Japanese train system.
Mind you since being in Kyoto it has not stopped raining - has anyone tried walking in flip flops in the rain - well I can tell you, I am entering the 2016 Aquaplane Olympics Team (not 2012 as not here, as you are all aware. Seb Coe has started to be a real pain he keeps on insisting I join the 2012 British Squad).
I have just aquaplaned to a little cafe/restaurant
Bullet Train to Kyoto
Richard Branson take a leaf out of the Japanese rail system if it is scheduled to arrive at 13.21 it arrives at 13.21
(Mike walked) and it was run by 4 old ladies it looked liked their living room, we had to sit on cushions - hey just thought was it their living room and we just barged in! The grub was excellent.
Have seen a couple of Geisha's, they really look fantastic, I will try to get some pictures for you tomorrow. At first glance Kyoto is what you expect Japan to look like but will let you know more about it in tomorrow's blog.
Hope everyone is alright.
