Tsukiji : Miso soup with striped marlin at Kashigashira

Splendid sashimi after one week absence

I missed sashimi while in Italy so much… so, I went to Kashigashira this weekend !
Recently Kashigashira has long line before the opening time and there are still some people waiting in front of the door after their closing time.

Because I was suffering from jet lag, I overslept. I woke up one hour late 🙁
But they gave me a warm welcome. I was deeply moved.

That day, they serve miso soup with striped marlin (マカジキ汁).
There were so many bony parts of striped marlin in it. Also tofu and vegetables were there.

As you see the soup, the striped marlin was so fatty ! Too large for me, so it took much time to eat it up 🙂

I was surrounded by drinkers, so I also couldn’t help drinking Japanese sake (Sencyu-Hassaku, 船中八策, 800 yen) 😛
