About
Located just around the corner from Tsukiji, Sushi Zanmai is a 24/7 sushi restaurant that serves super fresh fish at great prices. And, because the restaurant is much larger than Sushi Dai or Dawa Sushi inside Tsukiji, the line moves much quicker, meaning you won't need to wait 3 hours at the break of dawn to get a spot here.

About
Take a morning stroll through Tsukiji to see the endless variety of seafood that comes through Tokyo each day. While the market opens to the public only after 8AM, you can join a private tour for early access. For access to the tuna auction, you will either need to arrive very early at 2AM and wait, or join a VIP tour option to gain entry at 4:30AM without the wait.

Note: The market isn't designed as a tourist destination so watch out for the mini-forklifts zipping around.

If you want to get up super early, you can register to see the tuna auction (registration starts promptly at 5AM), and takes place here.

Coffee at Tsukiji Market Turret Cafe (ターレット コーヒー)
Contact your Concierge for any changes
About
Located on a narrow side street on the outskirts of the Tsukiji market, Turret is a pint-sized café where owner Kiyoshi Kawasaki serves top-notch espresso in ochoko sake cups. With just five counter seats and two small tables, it’s a bare-bones space with little room to linger, but Kawasaki pours what just might be the best latte in Tokyo. There are also non-coffee drinks if you are abstaining from caffeine.

Uni Over Rice at Uni Tora Kurau (うに虎喰)
Contact your Concierge for any changes
About
If you're an uni lover like we are, this may just be the sexiest spot in all of Tokyo. Located near Tsukiji, Uni Tora Kurau specializes in uni rice bowls. Get a completely obscene amount of uni over a bed of sushi rice. Here, they have uni from all of the world, but you're here for the Japanese stuff. Try the 3 Japanese uni-don, which comes with 3 types of Japanese uni for ¥5,000 - one meant to be eaten sans soy sauce, a second with shiso and salt, and a third with an egg yolk broken over it.

Famous Tokyo Tsukemen at Rokurinsha (On Tokyo Ramen Street Underground)
Contact your Concierge for any changes
About
This famous tsukemen shop—where the noodles are served “naked” with the broth on the side—was one of the first shops to bring fish flavors to the forefront. While Rokurinsha serves mainly pork-based tonkotsu broths, they use a number of different dried fish, including mountains of katsuobushi, niboshi (dried baby sardines), and sababushi (dried mackerel flakes).

There's typically a long line during lunch hours, so we recommend heading there post-lunch rush.

About
Japan Times food critic Melinda Joe referred to Code Name Mixology bartender Shuzo Nagumo as “the Willy Wonka of extraordinary cocktails” – and with good reason: Nowhere else in the world can you taste the likes of his blue cheese or smoked chocolate martinis, and his house-infused foie gras vodka. They do have a menu, but the best thing to do is tell the bartender what flavors you like and have him or her mix up a custom cocktail. The second-floor location in Akasaka can be challenging to find, but the lighting is romantic and the dark wood welcoming.
