A place for men working there to relaxation and refreshment

There are still some shops that I hadn’t visited in Tsukiji Market.

5-2-1 Tsukiji, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

I went to one of that, Edogawa the other day.
There’s an atmosphere that reject tourists….

Appearance, Edogawa (Tsukiji Market)


The reason of my refraining from this shop is …
It was hard to open the door…. I hesitated because there is always no tourists.
Almost all people are elder men who seems to work in the market.

There’s no meal set.

I left everything to my friend who visited there several times.

Boiled tofu (豆腐のみ, 220 yen)

There’s no meat on the dish. But this tofu was boiled with beef meats. So the flavors of beefmeat was soaked into the tofu !

Boiled cod with soy sauce – small (たら煮・小, 550 yen)

The meat was good 🙂 Why didn’t we have rice ?

Firefly squid with vinegared miso (ほたるいか, 600 yen)

Those had springy texture ! And its innards were sweet and good !

Leftover meat of tuna (まぐろブツ, 750 yen)

As you see, fresh tuna !

Everything was great and I think this shop have the fewest guests in the Market and we can enter the house without waiting so much even on Saturdays though the foods are perfect.
So, I recommend you visit there if you have enough courage …. maybe I’ll visit there with friends next time, too. Only me ? No, I can’t do 😛

  1. Edogawa is a very nice neighborhood and I like it a lot especially Nishi kasai and kasai, good mix of restaurants, shops and supermarket!!! Tried 串あげ田 & 鱼正 at nishikasai, both very good!

  2. Oops did not notice the restaurant’s name was edogawa but if u haven’t tried those 2 restaurants at nishikasai, maybe u can consider 🙂

      Don’t worry about it.Thanks for comment 🙂
      I’m interested in your recommendation and searched on the internet, but to our regret, I found those two restaurants already closed up X(
      How did you know these restaurants ? I think NishiKasai is not well-known by tourists from overseas. Perhaps you were living around Nishikasai ever ? 🙂

      • Oh dear it was back in 2012 when I stayed there during my holidays near a friend’s place. Sorry that they are closed hope there are nicer ones which opened up.
