Went to Tsukiji today, to make a new friend...hi! I'll give you a little pointer for free - go after lunch on Saturday, before the shops close, and blocks of tuna like this will be half-price. This ended up being the same price as a watery-looking specimen half the size in the grocery store. You can also get toro as fatty as you want...but only if you live in Tokyo.
To get to the store where I bought this, start at Tsukiji crossing and walk along the side of the outer market where all the ramen and donburi places are. Take the first left and look for the fridges on the left with tons of tuna like this. It's called 大興, but it's very hard to see the sign.
