Daiwa Sushi

One weekend we decided to make the early morning trek to Tsukiji Market for some fresh sushi. Of the competing restaurants, we ended up going to Daiwa Sushi and had a great meal. Surprisingly, the omakase was quite cheap (around 3500 yen). However, my appetite made it the most expensive breakfast I’ve had in my life.
