Amazing sushi for an unbeliavable price - but remember: time is money

Before travelling to Japan I would have called you crazy if you had told me that I would queue 3 hours in the rain for food. However, we missed the tuna auction (we arrived at 4am, but apparently you needed to be there around 3am) and so we had a lot of time to 'waste' until the market would open... read more

I've been to Sushidai twice and the sushi was equally delicious both times. On the other hand, the line seems to get longer and longer - 3 hours the first time, 4 hours the second time. The place opens at 5am, but some people start lining up as early as 3am (says the waitress). Unless you are prepared to do... More

I never thought I would wait 3 hours in line for sushi but I think I would do it all over again. Okay, let's face it, there is good sushi all across Tokyo. But nothing quite beats the experience of savoring fresh sushi in the midst of a vibrant fish market with friendly sushi masters and like-minded foodies. And 4000yen... More

The 40 min wait was definitely worth, because this sort of hidden place in the heart of the Tsukiji Fish Market serves a very special treat, the "sushi set menu". The seafood couldn't be fresher, considering the location of the restaurant and the whole experience was unforgettable.

In the summer pls note that you should be at the Tsukiji market at 3 am or so to get a ticket to attend the tuna auction. We were there at 430am and missed it. i will post a picture of the map and instruction guide separately. While your friends wait to watch the auction, you can go queue up... More

We woke up at 2:45am. Got a cab by 3:30am only to be turned away from the fish auction as it had already filled up. Whhhhaaaat?? So, naturally, we did the next best thing, waited for one of the top sushi restaurants in Tokyo to open up. We waited for 4 hours to finally sit. Made friends along the way.... More

We did as every tourist tormented by the jet lag, woke up at 3am, jumped in a taxi, missed the tuna auction and after some disoriented strolling in the streets of Tsukiji market lined up in front of Sushi Dai. If I remember correctly we waited for some three hours and a half to get in. Was it worthy? YES!... More

Be prepared to wait up to 4 hours before getting a place to sit. The sushi however is of great quality. Menu includes tea and miso soup, personnel is enthusiastic and explains everything about the food.

We waited in line for 4 hours starting at 5:45 a.m. and I was wondering "am I crazy?" But it was worth it. The extent of my sushi consists of ebi and fatty tuna so I was skeptical but the fish was so fresh I didn't even know I was eating fish. I ate mackerel (delicious), uni (sweet and flavorful),...

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's also a downtown area with shops that were founded over a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels, world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular with anyone looking for a night out.
