Morning visit to Tsukiji and then sushi for breakfast

I believe Dai is more popular but Daiwa came recommended by a friend who knows and he was right - this was great. Waited about 30 minutes. Don't get the set menu - order a la carte - and if you see something new / different, try it!

The queue is pretty long outside and the restaurant is very small. In fact it's two individual ''restaurants'' of 10 places each one, located next to each other. But you must definitively wait, because the sushis are just excellent. The best sushis I ate in my life. Their made in front of you at the moment. The staff is very... More

I wouldn't call myself a sushi 'connoisseur' necessarily, but it is my favorite meal and I am enthusiastic about seeking out great new places here in L.A. and around the world when I get the opportunity to travel. I had the pleasure of visiting Japan with a friend last year, and we decided to give the sushi breakfast at Tsukiji... More

We went to Daiwa Sushi right after our tuna auction, and lined up for maybe an hour? Sushi Daiwa had the shorter line so we lined up for this one and not Dai Sushi. Once we were seated, everything was in fast motion from there! Service was FAST! Piece after piece of sushi and a miso soup were served to... More

There has been numerous reviews of bloggers and netizens saying that Sushi Daiwa is probably the best sushi restaurant in Tokyo, I beg to differ. After queuing for about an hour (which started at 6 am), I ordered the 3500 set menu and even did a bit of Omakase when I finished the set. I have to admit the sushi... More

I've never had sushi this good - worth the cost and the one hour wait! We arrived around 6 am and were seated a little after 7:15. The line was busy on a Monday morning and we did see the attendant asking people to wait to get in line so that the street would remain at least halfway clear -... More

Its just located about 2 or 3 stores beside Sushi Dai. They had an Attendant making sure the line was... More

Came to Tsukiji market at around 7:00 and headed straight for this place which is reputed for serving the freshest and best sushi at the market. The line was huge but patience rewards those who wait. The line moved quite fast as the restaurants turns over its seats about every 20 minutes. Once we got inside, we were lucky to... More

This restaurant is amazing! It has the perfect sushi, it is a great experience and it is just the superb ending of a visit to the fish market. Yes, you need to wait in line and it may take up to an hour. But it is worth it. You get a miso soup and green tea - and already those... More

Neighborhood Profile
Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi

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.
