The rush battle of tuna auctions of traders evaluating rows and rows of fish and „fighting“ for the best piece is the biggest highlight.
This is the distribution hub for fresh food to and from every part of Japan.
Happens daily as early as 5:45-6:15 AM.
Online reservation needed or winning the access lottery before the auction is needed.

Tasting a night in a "capsule hostel" looked weired at first. But finally, it's much better than our hostels. Contrary having five strange people snorring around you, you have your own capsule that feels more personal. There are even higher standar capsules with great facilities like onsen or ryokan style.
Contrary the capsule, the overnight in in Akiba café was definitely weird. It's a non-stop gaming venu. You get your own "capsule" with a computer there as well. To overnight there is cheaper than enywhere else. But it's the weirdest weard what you can do. At least what I am aware of:)
