Kujira no Tomisui


Restaurants & Cafés


This kujira (whale) shop – the only one within the Tsukiji outer market – has been consistently stocking whale meat for the past 30 years. It's not for everyone, of course, but if you want to sample fresh whale sashimi, tartare or other dishes, then this is the place to do it. The storefront is lined with kujira cutlets, rice bowls, bacon, curries and more – if you're finding choosing difficult, try the crunchy and aromatic fried kujira.
