We were really excited to go eat sushis in Tsukiji, which was in our top to-do list coming in Japan. After reading good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try Yamazaki. We were unfortunately very disappointed. After waiting an hour in lineup, we were seated...More

Made our way to Tsukiji at 5:30am after a night out (!), saw the queue for Sushi Dai and decided to wait in the much shorter queue for Yamazaki. We were not disappointed! We queued for around 90 minutes, but when we were inside we...More

Located along the same stretch as Sushi Dai and Sushi Daiwa, Yamazaki serves fresh sushi to diners as well. They are a good alternative if you do not want to wait hours for Sushi Dai or Sushi Daiwa. But I expect their popularity to increase...More

Wonder why people are willing to bear the insane long queue at Sushi Daiwa and Sushi Dai when there's a hidden gem between these 2. Sushi Yamazaki is the definitely the best place for a sushi experience. Highly recommend the omakase set prepared by the...More

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

At least an hour before 10:00am. After 10:00am no idea, depends on the day. If you don’t want to queue, get there before 6:00am on weekdays.

I'm not sure about the opening time, it should be rather early as the fish market only operates in the morning. As I remember right, they only open for lunch time and close around 3pm (last round should be around 2:30pm... More
