I once stayed at Park Hotel and walked to Tsukiji for breakfast. Anyway, had sushi at Edogin (recommended by Lonely Planet) in the first trip and after which I didnít eat sushi at Tsukiji in other visits. Ate from other shops instead. Skip Sushi Dai and Daiwa Sushi. Youíll probably end up queueing many hours for a meal.

Try Sushi Zanmai Honten. Quite affordable. Many choices for you to choose in the Outer Market as well.

Think you meant 4.30am. But nowadays even those who sign up GoVoyagin tours were told to be at the waiting area by 1.30am-2am so that they would get a number. 4.30am would be too late.

Halal food products will probably be a personal effort. I know of mobile apps that can check via bar code scanning if the product is halal or haram

Ameyoko fresh produce market should still be open at 10am. Might be easier of you approach them and make a reservation. Higher chance of you getting what you need for sure that way

10am is fine. The stalls are open until afternoon even just that the selections will get more limited. Some even remain open until early evening but then usually just the preserved stuff like ikura and salted fish products.

Kawaguchiko is higher in elevation by a couple thousand feet - it will be colder than Tokyo

Ours Inn Hankyu

Anyone booked this hotel recently?

I used to be able to book the twin room for 1 pax which is at a cheaper rate for weekdays, compared to 2 pax. Not sure why I can no longer do so despite them displaying the different rates on the site.
