Daiwa Sushi & Sushidai

by Royal City Travel Guelph - Tokyo, Japan -

But of course you will be sampling more sushi than you'd ever imagine while visiting Tokyo - it is as delicious as it is ubiquitous. However, even if you're on a budget, splurging at one of the city's top sushi restaurants is well worth the hit your wallet might take. Take a trip to the famous fish market Tsukiji in central Tokyo.

Tsukiji’s restaurants can be found in alleys of Building 6, reached by walking in from the main entrance and turning right at the central square. These restaurants are stocked with fresh fish from the nearby fish market. After a long, jet-lagged night (or a night of partying) a sushi breakfast will do you right.

Arrive early!! Like 6am early. Get there on the first train or before to avoid waiting for up to 2 hours for a place at the sushi bar. Weekends are busier. Smaller groups are more quickly served. Lines are (surprisingly) very orderly, probably thanks to the appointed line monitors. If you’re with other people, have one person wait while the other does some exploring and/or shopping around the area.

Both of these restaurants serve fresh, never frozen, fish. Leave the soy sauce at home.

Daiwa Sushi 
This sushi spot is larger so you might get seated more quickly. Order the omakase (7 pieces & 1 roll) or the yummy, soft anago (conger eel). About $40 for 10 pieces of sushi. 
Hours: 5:30am-1:30pm 
Tel: 03-3547-6807

Sushidai 
The food here is so good. Try everything: octopus, tuna, baby squid, salmon, even a freshly cooked egg. Every piece of sushi is professionally served one by one, each with its own taste and texture. Chefs are super nice. Expect to pay upwards of $30 
Hours: 5am-2pm; Closed Wednesday if the market is closed 
Tel: 03-3547-6797
