The best sushi place - fresh sushi, friendly sushi master

Glad that I made it to the Tsukiji market one more time before their relocation later this year (2016). Daiwa Sushi is almost the best sushi place in the market. It has the longest queue among their competitors. Average waiting time during the day is around 1.5 hours. If you go alone, you might... read more

We were waiting about 30 minutes, when the lady came out and was yelling for anyone who wanted a single seat. I let my wife go and take the seat so we didn't need to wait 2+ hours. We specifically asked her if she could take the food to go if my wife didn't finish it and she told us... More

We had sushi at Daiwa at 10:am after visiting the Tsukiji fish market. We had to wait 1.5 hours before we could finally have a seat but we did not regret it for a second. The sushi were outstanding, everything we had were incredibly good and tasted really fresh. However, do not go there if you want to have a... More

First, this is a must experience to do when visiting Japan. Sushi for breakfast. Second, my five stars go to the quality of fish served. I got the menu of the chef for about 30€ or a bit less and consisted in a superb mix of nigiri maki ikura gunkan-maki. The toro nigiri was so delicious that I ordered a... More

The queue at Sushi Dai next door is MUCH longer. No idea why, this place is epic and much better. We got there at 4:30 and waited the hour for it to be open at 5:30. We were the first wave in and it was worth the wait! Each piece of sushi melts in your mouth and is expertly chosen... More

I queued for about 1h at daiwa sushi and I arrived at about 915. I was in a group of 8. The queue is shorter than that of sushi dai which is the most famous place at tsukiji market just a few doors down from daiwa sushi. I recommend seating individually as the staff occasionally come out to ask for... More

We woke up early in the morning to visit the fish market and eat sushi for breakfast. At first, we wanted to go to Dai sushi, but the cue at 6 am was really crazy (more than 3 hours). After some walks, we chosed Daiwa Sushi. It was a long cue but reasonable, about 1 hour. Experience was amazing. Although... More

We waited for about an hour to enter this restaurant. And it was worth waiting for. We ordered the omikase set and at the end you can repeat order which sushi you liked at extra cost. The price is about 3,500 yen per set. highly recommended if you are in tsukiji market

Honestly, seeing the line at Sushi Dai (the sushi bar next door) at 4.30am freaks me. The line at that time was about 30 people and at the rate of serving 10 people at one time, our wait could be over 2.5 to 3 hours. So we decided to line up for the less popular Sushi Daiwa. Although the shop... More

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.
