Hi All! I am getting married July 9th and the morning of July 11th set out to Tokyo. I land Tuesday July 12 and will be there until Friday July 15th in the morning, then Hong Kong until Monday July 18th in the morning (there is more to the itinerary but I will not bore you with that - this is the part that matters).
I do not eat shellfish or meat, but big fan of any other fish! (Salmon, Tuna, yellowtail, the list goes on). Booked right now are Vegan restaurants which I don't want to go to, and was going to the fish market a day when it was closed, and other disasters.
I have discovered your site today and need your help planning my stay/food spots during those days. We love Asian food (fish + noodles, sushi, salmon, tuna, any white fish.... I don't want it to seem that we can't eat anything given the dietary restriction - there is still a lot!)
This is my itinerary right now following some research on my end. Help!!! Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
