I stumbled upon this restaurant while walking through the fish market, there were a ton of drawings and signs in multiple languages so I decided to check it out. This was the best decision I made the entire time I was in Tokyo. Jay-Jay is a phenomenal character and while serving some delicious food, he provided me with six pages... More

Yeah, you got it, I'm not necessarily talking about great food which was of course fresh and tasty, but I'm talking more about the overall experience of having breakfast at 6:00 am in the middle of the fish market. The environment was really cozy for a winter morning, not pretentious at all, but very warm. When we arrived it was... More

We stopped in to the fish market to shop and see the sights, and of course have lunch! We picked among the various restaurants and picked this one mostly at random. So glad we did. The shop owner gave us wonderful food recommendations for the group, including appetizers, fish soup, sashimi and a terrific miso blackened halibut. Plus he gave... More

We found this little place by accident on our first trip to Japan in 2004. It was the only place without a long line to get in, but we decided to try it. So glad we did. The owner is Jay-Jay (that's what he calls himself to us Americans) and he's a real character. He has learned English and speaks... More

My wife and I stopped at this stall randomly when we were visiting the Tsukiji Market on our honeymoon. The owner warmly invited us in when we were passing by the door looking for a stall that might have an english menu or something with pictures to help us out. The owner is half the reason to check this stall... More

We stumbled on this place visiting Tsukiji Fish Market. It's a tiny bar setting with a character running the show. The owner is very gracious and will make you laugh. He will even help you with your Japanese. Really, he has hand written handouts. We had chicken yakitori and tuna sashimi. Both were delicious! The chicken was incredibly juicy and... More

Ate breakfast after early morning tour of Tsukiji Fish market. We were welcomed by the owner, he's a character to be seen! Fixed the price before eating - Miso soup, Yakitori (grilled chicken) with Korean chilli paste, rice and some pickled veggies, unlimited green tea - all together at a bargain price 15.000 JPY :) Nice place, would visit again...

I and a friend wandered in here after visiting the Tsukijii fish market. We did not get a warm feeling from other nearby places (we were actually shouted at by a woman at one nearly empty restaurant) and decided to enter Yonehana after receiveing a warm smile and wave from Jiro. He was very funny and engaging, teaching us many... More

This was a bad restaurant! After tasting some of the best Japanese foods throughout the country, we decided to try a new one in Tsukiji Market and unfortunately we chose Yonehana for breakfast. There were some warning signs that we should have paid attention to: too many testimonials about the food from unverified sources, too many photos of foreign visitors... More

It's now a ritual of mine to go to Yonehana on the first morning of arrival to Japan. Jet lag rouses me at some ungodly early hour. I dress and hop on the Hibiya line to Tsukiji, then make my way through the crowd of wholesale buyers into the inner ring of restaurants. I walk past the long line of... More
