We booked ourselves in a little hotel in a quiet street in Ginza for proximity to the shopping Ginza's famous shopping strip, and to Tsukiji Fish Market. Tsukiji Market is the largest whole safe fish and seafood market in the world and one of the largest wholesale market of any kind. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsukiji_fish_market
Although we did not get up early for the bidding on fish, we made it a point to get to the market by 9AM.
As early as we arrived, we found a nice small sushi place right in the market.

Freshest sushi and sashimi

On the right are some clam variety that reminds me of steamers in the Northeastern coast of the United States; except these have longer "tails".
Well worth the trip if you're a foodie!
