The café is located right next to Tsukiji Honganji Temple, good place for escaping from busy fish market and Ginza in Tokyo.
Whole glass window gets you full view of spacious garden to the beautiful Buddhist architecture.
Typically, the space is filled with moms who just sent their children to school and have spare time for once for a while breakfast with chatting, like I did.
The most fascinating menu is Japanese style morning plate. There are 18 kinds of tiny dishes come with warm congee and miso soup in a tray, this is the traditional Japanese breakfast style which is similar to the meal served in ryokan accommodation. This is one of Japanese food culture to be served big breakfast in restaurants and Japanese accommodations. Some people in my cooking class ask that does Japanese people eat such a big breakfast daily, but I would say our breakfast is vey simple at home, but when we go out, we enjoy big breakfast.
In Typical life style of house hold in Japan, we spend busy time in the weekdays morning. The moms prepare breakfast and lunch box, we call bento box for the family in the morning after wake up, we spend super busy time until family leave home.
I believe the place is also desirable for tourists, because you can try many different Japanese healthy homey taste with nice and calm atmosphere.
The menu is not only for the breakfast. See the sweets varieties! The café opens from 8 am to 9 pm. There are lunch menus and other meal options as well.
There are many small food shops in outer fish market ; fresh seafood, dried food, chicken, meat, vegetable and anything relate to food shops in total more than 400 shops in a small area.
As a local shopper, I get there fresh seafood and dried food for my cooking class and use for own. I always enjoy to find something new to me, seasonal ingredients, kitchen utensils. Also my precious time is talking with people who work there. They teach me how to prepare the specific ingredients also how to cook what they usually eat. I learn a lot about cooking from them。
However, it is also fun to look around the street food there. Japanese egg roll in Tsukiji fish market is now very popular. There are something else the visitor enjoy the taste of the market.
I picked up some food below.
Those are nice and warm street foods.
