Year-end Tsukiji have great number of people !

My first eat out to Tsukiji 2013 was

At Yonehana

This was December 30. Last business day of the Tsukiji Market 2013. So, it was sooooo crowded. I hadn’t seen such a so much people in the ground. Amazing.
It was very hard for me to walk smoothly in the ground because of the crowd.
Almost all eateries had many people waiting in front of their entrance. I wanted to eat something deep fried foods, but Odayasu, Yachiyo and Toyochan,,, every deep fried foods shops had long waiting lines. So I gave up eating deep fried foods and I went toward Yonehana. Yonehana had only two people in front of the entrance 😛

I intended to eat chef’s choice, but it was already sold out. So I ordered a sashimi bowl (海鮮丼, 1500 yen) after a long absence.

I think Yonehana’s sashimi bowl is the best sashimi bowl of all eateries in Tsukiji Market all the same. But that day’s sashimi bowl was not much size as usual. Probably it was end of the year, so they didn’t have much foods.
I heard that Yonehana was closed before 11 a.m. that day. Every foods were out.

Ummm. sooo much wasabi !!! (>_<)

I recommend all tourists from abroad not to go Tsukiji Market last business day of the year.
Because it was incredibly crowded and every eateries don’t have much foods because it is just before consecutive holidays.
…. I never go, too 😛 I was exhausted.

My last eat out to Tsukiji 2014 was

At Odayasu

At first, I intended to eat Shell set (Scallop, oyster and shell ligament set) at “Yachiyo (八千代)”, but I also wanted to eat Oyster set at Odayasu. And my friend recommended Odayasu’s oyster set on twitter. AND, Odayasu’s oyster set is 100 yen cheaper than Yachiyo’s shell set :P I decided.

Oyster set (カキミックス, 1600 yen)

Oyster set, Odayasu (Tsukiji Market)


Oyster set is called “Kaki (Oyster) mix” in Japanese. It have fried oysters with butter and deep fried oysters on dish.
I eat it every year 🙂 We can eat oysters at Tsukiji only in winter. So we can this dish only in winter.

Well, I said before,I eat it every year. But I hadn’t seen such a big deep fried oysters at Tsukiji Market !!!
Everytime I ate deep fried oysters at Tsukiji (Not only at Tsukiji, mostly at everywhere), one piece of “deep fried oyster” have two oysters in it.
But those were not. Those have one oyster. One huge oyster !

    I really like sashimi, but after eating raw fish, I usually lose my appetite in cooked fish:) By the way, at fist I though the lobster at the entrance (picture 1) was a giant spider 🙂

    Giant spider ? Ah, yes 🙂 Because of such a looking, Yonehana don’t have much people, expecially Japanese, despite of their good foods 😛
