|Chef cutting fresh tuna.|
I chose a smaller platter called Nami Nigiri, which was simply described as regular sushi with miso soup for 850 JPY. For that cheap price, I received 13 pieces including: tuna, salmon, shrimp, clam, tuna salad roll, and pickled plum rolls. The sushi were large generous pieces and quite fresh, as to be expected being we were right in the famous Tokyo fish market. I loved the shrimp, tuna, and salmon pieces. The stark white fish had a most different texture - I think it may have been squid or something. I found the tuna salad roll tasty, and funny at the same time, as I have never seen that in a sushi restaurant before. To end the meal we were both given a hot cup of green tea in a cute clay vessel with sushi pictures on it.
All in all, we had a large sushi breakfast that filled us up for a full day of site-seeing. The crowds were much larger as we left, so I recommend you going early on if you don't want to wait in line. Umai Sushikan is in the alley to the far left (if you are standing looking towards to the entrance to the market). If you are local to Tokyo, they also provide catering.
