If you're wondering whether it's worth getting up at 4am and queueing for sushi in a fish market, the answer is yes! The most amazing, fresh sushi handmade right in front of you. Fantastic meal and something we will be talking about for years to come.

Waited around 45 minutes to be seated which was not so bad. As usual, we went for omakase (chef's recommendation) and ordered extra on top of that. I used to live in Tokyo for a few years . Coming back here, I was excited to get authentic sushi again. My boyfriend and I ordered a lot. My favorites are Otoro,... More

There are some places that you go to that are overhyped and underwhelming that you may have had to line up for. Daiwa Sushi is not one of those places. The wait is definitely worth it. The fish is the freshest fish ever (being that the restaurant gets the seafood direct from the port 50 meters down, the staff are... More

Be ready to stand in line for a while. When you get to the table, just sit down and the chef will start serving a menu. After the Manu you can order more if you want.

We set to queue for Dai Sushi which located just right next Daiwa but the queue was too long. Saw a couple of locals queuing outside Daiwa and we set to go there. Within less than an hour, we managed to secure our seats and tried the Omakase menu. The sushi and nigiri were great and my personal favourite is... More

Only 2 doors down from sushi dai, we ate here twice during our 8 nights in tsukiji. We arrived at 3am, and there was already a 30 person queue for sushi dai as oppose to the day before when there was only 4 people at 3am, so rather than waiting we went to sushi daiwa. This sushi is very comparable... More

Many people line up at Tsukiji Market in the morning for Sushi Dai, but just two door down is Daiwa Sushi. It is probably the second most popular sushi place in Tsukiji Market. A lot of good review for sushi dai because of the reviews. Sushi Dai is excellent, but Daiwa is almost the same. Unless you are a food... More

Very small place and there will be a line but so wirth it. Go when it opens at 9h00AM (yes sushis breakfast :)! Best calamar & mackerel ever, on top of tuna and other fish & seafood. You will pay $37 per person for the tasting and will be full and very happy after your visit.

Definitely the best tasting sushi for the price. Ever. The place is located near the Fish Market, right next to its sister restaurant Sushi Dai. For some reasons, the queue here is only about an hour and half while Sushi Dai's queue is at least 4 hours long. After eating at Daiwa I really doubt if Dai would possibly be... More

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.
