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

waiting in line is just part of it. People from all over the world queue for a couple of hours and it is exciting to finally get in behind the curtains. Just a dozen stools where you watch the chef prepare the delicious sushi. Lots of fun. Even with fish for breakfast!

We've been to both sushi Dai und daiwa sushi so I am able to compare both sushi locations. We waited a little less to get inside daiwa sushi than sushi Dai. But still we had to wait. Our expectations were quite high as we have heard that it is almost as good as sushi Dai and we were completely satisfied... More

Next to the "wait three hours in line" Sushi Dai, Daiwa Sushi in my opinion is just as good quality and such a cool and authentic sushi experience. We got there around 9 or 10am and only waited about 15 mins. Once we were done though there seemed to be a bit of a line. Still nothing compared to next... More

This joint deserves the 5 star rating. It's supposedly run by the son of Sushi Dai and has a shorter queue. I came at about 6am after the tuna auction. Most unbelievable sushi ever. Nothing else taste quite as good anymore. Haven't tried Sushi Dai though, so I'm not in a position to compare.

We reached the place slightly after 9am and there was already a queue on place (still decent compared to Dai Sushi's ridiculous queue). We got in within an hour and ordered the chef omakase's set each. The sushi was fresh and the tuna and sea urchin were incredible! Definitely worth a visit!!!

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.
