Needless to say, super fresh. The shellfish we had tasted sweet! My fave was the uni. So creamy! And you don't taste the fishiness at all! This is a good alternative if those other places have super long lines.

If I could pick anything for my last meal it would be anything from this place. Japanese food is definitely the most satisfying food to eat. The queue at midday didn't put me off having to wait 40 minutes once the food touched my lips...More

This is a great place to grab some sushi after paying a visit to the fish market. We had a little wait as the restaurant itself has minimal covers but I can assure you that it is worth the time outside in the humidity. Every...More

After experiencing the tuna auction at the fish market we walked the area and found this restaurant nestled between other sushi restaurants with longer lines. There were 5 of us so we split up so we could be seated sooner. I ordered by favorites; maguro...More

Yamazaki Sushi is definitely the best and freshest Sushi I've ever tried. When we went there in the morning there was no wait. The style and look of the restaurant was very tradition Edo style. It was really cool how you sat behind the chef...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
