I love sushi. It’s healthy. And fresh. And delicious. And has more variations than pizza. Maybe. Problem is, though: If you want to eat really good sushi, you have to go to Japan. Nope, if you’ve never been to the land of the rising sun and you think you’ve had good sushi somewhere in your life, it’s a lie. The best sushi lies around in Japan. And Tsukiji fish market offers the best sushi in Japan.
The Tsukiji fish market is a large wholesale market for fish, fruits, and vegetables in central Tokyo. It handles over 2,000 tons of marine products per day and is said that to date back to the 16th century, the beginning of the Edo period. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the first Tokugawa shogun, and builder of Edo, now better known as Tokyo, invited fishermen from Tsukudajima, Osaka and gave them a privilege for fishing in order to let them supply seafood to Edo Castle. It was the origin of the fish market.
If you want to eat great sushi, you can try Sushi Dai, Iwasa Sushi, or Okame. Try to come as early as possible, usually there’s a long queue of locals and tourists waiting to eat. Japanese people love queues. Maybe that’s the best piece of advice: The earlier you come to Tsukiji fish market, the better. I love sushi. It’s healthy. And fresh. And delicious. And Tsukiji fish market is the official sushi heaven.
