Visited Tenfusa with a friend who has been staying in Tokyo for awhile now. We went on a weekday morning, and there was a queue which we waited in line for about 40 mins. We ordered a tendon each and a miso soup to go along. The portion was generous, with a lot of tempura, miso soup came with clams,... More

Had the best tempura don. It is crispy yet doesn't have the oily feel. Juices oozes out with very bite you take. Had ordered Maguro sashimi too and its fresh and tasty. A small eatery, with only a few tables.

Thanks to a food blogger, we decided to eat at non-sushi restaurants. After hitting one of the tonkatsu restaurant in building #6 (yes it's the same block as Sushi Dai & Daiwa Sushi), we went a few doors down to the end of building to try the popular items of shrimp tempura and anago (salt-water eel) tempura at Tenfusa.

This eatery is very small, probably with only three tables and a side counter. There is a person for taking the orders and a chef for food preparation. The wait wasn't too long, maybe 20 minutes around 12.30 pm. We ordered the Anago tempura which came with a soy dipping sauce. The fish was fresh, succulent and the tempura panko... More

If you are visiting Tsukiji and have 2-3 hours to spare, you may just want to stop by this quaint little place for some good tempura. My family and I were in Tsukiji last weekend and after reading about this place, we decided we were going to try to queue for it. My boys are fans of tempuras and so... More

We went at about 10am with not much of a line. Much, much better than the over-hyped Daikokuya. Ingredients were fresh and the old couple running the place were such dears. Do yourself a favor: Throw in a side order of maguro.

The queues are about an hour long but its worth every minute of it. Even if you dont eat tempura, it'll be one of the bestest tenpura you've ever had!!!! A little difficult to order as they dont have an english menu but ten don will be your best bet. We had the eel and small crispy prawns, they were... More

Department stores and luxury boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza. It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll while the road is closed to traffic.
