Chef Okajima’s attention was caught by the presence of a variety of scrumptious seafood present in the town where he grew up as a child. Later on, he decided to venture into the food industry and started working at the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo by buying fish and seafood for a small-scale sushi shop in the city.

With his efforts, he became a full-fledged sushi chef and later on decided to put up his own sushi restaurant in the Philippines, naming it “Tsukiji”.
Now, Tsukiji Japanese Restaurant in Makati City continues to serve the freshest and best seafood, flown thrice weekly from the Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan.
Some of Tsukiji’s best sellers include a sashimi mix of salmon, scallops, hamachi (yellowtail), hontoro (fatty tuna belly), maguro (tuna), tako (octopus), ebi (prawns), and uni (sea urchin), among others.
