All-you-can-eat restaurants are great for both people who want to have a hearty meal, and those who want to have a little bit of everything. One cannot help but become excited by just looking at the variety of delicious-looking dishes on display. Here we feature 6 restaurants that we especially recommend.
1. "Ginza Maguroya Tsukiji", with the freshest ingredients
"Ginza Maguroya Tsukiji" is located in Tsukiji, an area of fierce competition for sushi where you can find about 70 restaurants specializing in it, and it offers an "all-you-can-eat menu" on Saturdays, Sundays, and Public Holidays only.

The chefs make the sushi right in front of you using fresh ingredients bought directly from the Tsukiji Market, which is very close to the restaurant. Luxury ingredients like abalone, sea urchin, and fatty tuna are very popular, so they sell out very quickly.
