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

Having been trying sushi in many places (mostly Europe) for many years, I have no idea how sushi could be that good, until I came to its origin country. It was unbelievably delicious. And plenty of options to choose from. I will go try some...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

We had lunch at Yamazaki and had to wait for 2h30 but it was worth the wait. It was the best sushi we have ever had! The sushiman who served us was really nice, helpful and speaks a bit Spanish

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.
