Dear Tsukiji Market...

Dear Tsukiji Fish Market:

I’m not quite sure how to begin…I’m still feeling a bit overwhelmed from my trip to Tsukiji. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced such a frenzy of activity, hustle, and bustle. I still feel a little un-nerved.

I think you need to build lanes and roads throughout the market. I nearly got killed several times just from cross traffic. Those crazy little carts that you drive like maniacs through the market are just a death hazard waiting to happen. I swear to you…the fact that more tourists aren’t killed there is shocking to me. Those on suicide missions should definitely visit here.

Furthermore, we tried to wait in line for Sushi Dai but were told that it would be a FOUR (4) hour wait. Who waits 4 hours for sushi?? I don’t care how good you think you are…you really aren’t that good. Thank goodness for Sushi Daiwa and the ONE (1) hour I had to wait for that. The service was great and as evidenced from the photos, the sushi was, too! PLUS, they actually said that my Japanese was good! (Unlike that Kyoto Lady who told me to speak proper Japanese and gave me an evil stink eye…that old bat!!)

Anyhow, I just thought you should know that since Tsukiji is a tourist destination (whether you like it or not), you really should try a little harder to make it a little safer for people like me.

Thank you for your kind consideration,

Sushi Daiwa
