It is Monday morning and our alarm was set at 530am. After a brisk 15-minute walk we arrived at Tsukiji to find no less than 50 people already in line for Sushi Dai; the preeminent purveyor of (what many consider as) the world’s best sushi....More

Waited in line for most of an hour for a meal that didn't last 15 minutes before everyone was hurried out the door. Moreover, the dishes were few and not even special—especially not for ¥3780/USD$35. The hype must have skewed this restaurant's priorities.

The 45 min queue was worth it, it was the best sushi ever. The Omekaze set had 8 pieces of different sushi, fish slice portion was generous & they were so fresh. Love the sea urchin. We ordered some extra after finishing the set. The...More

There was a 3 hour wait for Sushi Dai, so we looked up Yelp and found the 4 1/2 star Daiwa Sushi 2 doors down where the wait was less than 30 minutes. Service was very friendly and the sushi as fresh as can be....More

Went around 7am and had to wait an hour but this was sushi created by master chefs in the business for a long time who are truly skilled. Amazingly fresh and perfectly executed sushi. So delicious and great value. A great experience too.

Daiwa Sushi is located inside of the Tsukiji fishmarket. I am worried about what will happen in the future as the fish market moves from Tsukiji to Toyosu. Daiwa sushi, the right side of the shop is father, and the shop on the left is...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

From my experience, there isn't any space for a baby. The space is very cramped, you sit elbow-to-elbow at the sushi counter, and the space behind your back is about two feet wide and necessarily occupied by servers... More
