Daiwa Sushi

5-2-1 Tsukiji
Tsukiji Market Part 6 Bldg
Tokyo, Japan
TEL: 81-3-3547-6807

One of two sushi restaurants inside the Tsukiji Fish Market, Daiwa is a traditional sushi counter with room for about a dozen sitting elbow-to-elbow in front of the busy chefs preparing the city's freshest catch for immediate consumption. Many say Daiwa is Tokyo's best sushi restaurant. The omakase (chef's choice) menu depends on the catch of the day, typically including ebi (shrimp), uni (sea urchin), hamachi (yellowtail), tuna rolls, and other traditional sushi and sashimi options, as well as a bowl of miso and green tea.

Insider Tip:

The market is already bustling by 5:30 a.m. and lines start to form at Daiwa not long thereafter, so come early or expect a wait of over an hour.
