11:58 am, Tokyo Day 3, 寿司大

This is the most popular sushi place in Tsukiji. What you see is only the front of the line, there's another 10 or so people around the corner. It's easily a two-hour wait, if not longer.

 

The line was something like 80% Taiwanese.

 

I guess this place is to the Taiwanese as DTF is to the Japanese.

 

We waited for an hour, gave up and went to have uni rice instead. Waited on the uni rice line, ate, came back, and this line didn't budge one bit.

 

Maybe next trip to Tokyo I'll come try this place at 7 in the morning when there wouldn't be a line.
