This is the most popular Sushi canteen in Tsukiji Market, and probably every TV travel show, guide books, bloggers, etc. from overseas will refer to this establishment when visiting Tsukiji. But it is so overrated now. Back in the 80s this used to be a place where the in-crowd Japanese ate, which were mainly people working or shopping at Tsukiji market and Tokyoites, gourmet freaks and night owls. Good Sushi, cheap and a bit on the rough side. These days, all you see are overseas tourists and country bumpkins from Japan paying pilgrimage to Tsukiji market. The real Tokyoites or the market pros have moved on. I recall it being a lot cheaper too. Now it is over 3,000 yen (I think 3,800 yen) a meal and you have to wait at least 20 minutes. There are many other sushi restaurants in the neighborhood for this price (or lower) and the quality, even better. I'm not saying the Sushi quality here is bad, but for the price, ambience, etc. it is no longer worth it. It's a market canteen in the end of the day, and their prices are delusional. If it's not sushi your after, then try the Tonkatsu restaurant (more like a canteen) in the Market. Sorry, forgot the name, but it is famous. That place still has the charm of old Tsukiji, and it is still frequented by the locals.
