Heaven, hama7! As a long-time searcher for everything sashimi I've never been able to collect all these Tsukiji links. Here's another one to add to your lisy.

I often dream of eating at that little restaurant, considered the best, that opens - and closes - in the early morning. And where you get what you get. I can't seem to remember its name, though...

Thanks!

See my post above for proof that great minds - well, alike minds at least - think alike! Which is fishy, no? :)

You sly fox. I thought "lisy" was a cute homepage, or something about airplanes. One lives and learns.

Travel advisory:

If you ever take a trip to Tokyo, this and maybe Akihabara might convince you that your trip to the megalopolis had some merits over the countryside.

another self link.

I loved the crazy little trucks here. The whole front section turned. Unfortunately I had a horrible hangover and I couldn't face the sushi, which is something I regret. (This also explains the ropey quality of some of the shots). The market is HUGE.

I miss Tokyo :(.

In my quest to find the name of that early-morning Tsukiji sushi restaurant (I know it's out there somewhere, coz I've seen it and bookmarked the bastard in a former life computer, I found this quite excellent collection of photographs.

Perhaps you refer to Sushi Maru...?

A lot of visitors to Tsukiji line up at Daiwa but people that have worked in the market all their lives usually eat at Sushi Maru.

This is the entrance to sushi bliss.

Some pictures of the delights to be found within.

Here is a map, too. (Pink square on the bottom right of the map near the Koban.)

(Sorry, all links are in Japanese.)

In my opinion, Sushi Maru has the best sushi in Tsukiji and the Itamae has a great sense of humor.

Hope this was the shop you were looking for.

Best Regards.

First Law of Touring Japan: No matter where you go, there's always somewhere more authentic nearby.

Second Law of Touring Japan: Upon returning, no matter where you recount the story of your tour, there's always someone who knows about the places you should have visited.

I went to Daiwa, and it was the best meal I have ever eaten. If there is another restaurant that's even better, then I guess I'd better go back to Tokyo.....

I think Tsukiji is a real wonder of the world, especially for us Americans, for whom the equivalent would probably be a feed lot and a herd of cattle. If you can go to japan, go and see it!

I just went to Daiwa-zushi a few weeks ago myself. Had the most amazing melt-in-your-mouth oo-toro (really fatty tuna) and some incredible uni (sea urchin) too. I now know my way around. Don't forget the raw auction starts at 5 AM and the tuna auction starts at 5:30 AM. Monday through Sat mornings.
