大和

Tsukiji

What better place to get sushi in Tokyo, than by going to an actual fish market? By the time we arrived at Tsukiji Fish Market (around 6:00AM in the morning), the lines were already pretty long. Daiwa Sushi (大和) had a significantly shorter wait. We probably only waited for around 20 minutes before we were seated.

We decided on the omakase which was seven pieces of nigiri, 6 pieces of maki for ¥3500.

My favourite piece was either the Anago or the Shrimp Head. The quality of the fish was amazing. The Ikuro was suprisingly good, since it didn't have the fishy taste you get so much roe imported here in Canada.

Probably not the best sushi you could find in Tokyo, but it was pretty damn close.
