The only thing more impressive than the size and scope of the Tsukiji Fish Market, is the waiting time for the two most popular sushi joints, Daiwa sushi and Sushi Dai. It was 5AM, 38 degrees Fahrenheit, the day after Christmas and a 5 hour and 2 hour wait for these two most popular establishments! For real! We stood in line for 20 minutes, and as I was going numb, my wife luckily saw two empty spots at the Yamazaki Sushi bar in between the “two hot spots” and it was memorable and fantastic! What great luck to find this spot right in front of our noses. A family affair, with mom pouring out the tea and junior serving up the sushi with papa overseeing everything, a great experience and super fresh sushi, great service and atmosphere, a wonderful staff attitude, and fairly priced. Our advice is skip the other two places, this is where you want to enjoy Tokyo’s best!
