Day 7 - Japan/Hong Kong

Day Seven – Japan / Hong Kong

We spent the majority of today in queues. A cloudy day does not stop tourists! A great thing about Tokyo Disneyland in comparison to Universal Studios Japan is that the fast-pass is free! The limitation is that you're only allowed to take 1 fast-pass at a time, but each pass gives you an hour's duration to return to the venue. Later in the night, our tour guide arranged for these freshly boiled (delivered defrosted) Hokkaido Crabs to be delivered to our hotel rooms for supper. Hokkaido crabs are also known as Tarabagani or the Red Sea King Crab. The crab's meat was sweet and put a new meaning to "king" crabs... very satisying indeed!
