How long do you need to wait

To tell the truth, I don’t know yet.

DAY1-2: it’s not open to public. So we don’t need to wait so long.
(Sushi dai for 2 hours. We don’t need to wait for Daiwasushi)

DAY3: It’s open to public. It’s tooooooooo busy.

Now is DAY4.

So I don’t know.

For your information,
we usually waited for 4-5 hours at Sushi dai, 1-2 hours at Daiwa sushi in Tsukiji.
(Last 1 week, we needed to wait for over 10 hours at Sushi dai. So crazy.)
