you can't be a food lover and not visit the tsukiji fish market right? my friends and i woke up at 4am to check this out, although i have to admit i was a little disappointed because you don't get a whole lot of information from the tuna auction. however it was still a sight to see.
we ate at daiwa sushi afterwards, it was probably the best i've ever had. all of us (and pretty much everyone in the restaurant) orders off their set menu. i sat next to a local who ordered off the 'secret' menu, so in addition to the set menu i ordered a few items from that menu as well. if you ever go, you must order the seared tuna – one of the best things i ever ate.
