Located just across the channel of Tsukiji Fish Market, Tsukishima is a man-made island known for being one of the oldest towns in the city. It was discovered a hundred years ago, created using earth that was dredged from the bay. Because of the many housings in the area, it gives off a nostalgic feeling every time someone pays a visit. The town is also known for being the home of monjayaki, a Japanese soul food that is a crowd favorite among locals and tourists. Nishinaka Street houses most of the monjayaki restaurants in the town. In the past couple of years, there has been a lot of changes in town, making it more urbanized. However, there are still parts of this beautiful town where you can see remnants of the past. It’s almost as if living in the present with strings of the past tugging your heart.
