So why do people wait for so long to eat here? It's because you can enjoy traditional, high-end Edomae sushi for only ¥3000. As it is located inside the fish market, the chef chooses the best fishes in the morning to make his sushi. The store closes once the sushi runs out, so if you are an early bird, perhaps start lining up from 5:00AM is best.
