Eat: Tsukiji Market
The area around Tokyo’s famous fish market, Tsukiji, is full of tantalizing sushi spots to try. From sushi and sashimi to maki and chirashi (rice bowls), you can find almost anything you might want. Keep in mind what fish might be seasonal, and take advantage of any specials of the day. When in doubt, order the omakase, the chef’s choice.
For a refined feast, make your reservations early at Araki, the high-end, detail-oriented sushi restaurant awarded three stars by the Michelin guide. Located in Ginza, not far from Tsukiji market, the chef is an expert, the fish is always fresh, and you’re likely to have a meal that redefines sushi entirely.
