Tsukiji Market, the largest fish market on earth, is home to outstanding sushi and tempura eateries that open as early as 5:30 a.m. and close by early afternoon. Take a right from the central square to reach the row of tiny restaurants. While long lines form in front of Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi (for good reason—they both serve some of the freshest sushi anywhere), if you prefer tempura to raw fish in the morning, Tenfusa is the place. Vegetables and fresh-from-the-ocean seafood are battered, fried, and served up with a steaming hot bowl of rice. The bowl of anago ten don (eel tempura)—crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside, and drizzled with a sweet and savory soy sauce—is our favorite.
