Eating sushi in Tsukiji

Tokyo’s world famous Tsukiji seafood and wholesale market is also a great place to eat the freshest sushi and sashimi.  In the market and nearby are many small counter top sushi places to grab a quick bite.  In fact, even at 7am these places are full (and don’t be surprised to see drunk gaijin who have stayed up all night having a sushi breakfast in these little joints).
