Belt Conveyor Sushi is very fun. Delicious but cheap.
Do you like Japanese sushi? Also do you like a kaiten sushi restaurant? Generally sushi restaurants are expensive. But kaiten sushi restaurants are cheap. Kaiten sushi is a belt conveyor sushi restaurant. And they are delicious and fun.
There are several belt conveyor sushi chains in Tokyo. They are competing each other. Many restaurants of them are at suburb. I went to one of sushi chain. The restaurant name was “Hamazushi“. This style was an example of Hamazushi. Styles are different by restaurants. But belt conveyor sushi restaurants are also at central Tokyo.
The restaurant was not crowded so much because it was Saturday evening. But cheap sushi restaurants are very popular in Japan. You may have to wait for a long time just at meal times.
Counter seats and table seats were available. I seated at a table. There were several soy sauces and powder of green tea. I prepared Japanese green tea myself. Cups for green tea were on a tray above a conveyor. I took a cup and put in a spoonful of powder. This restaurant did not have any waiters and waitresses.
Sushi came one after another by the belt conveyor. Normally a pair of same sushi are on one plate. Some special kinds of sushi come at only one. One plate is 90 yen with tax on weekdays, but 100 yen with tax on weekends at this restaurant.
Five types of soy sauces were available. They were different flavor. Hot water tap to make green tea was also available. Be careful not to burn.
You can order sushi by photo. If you want to call a staff, push green button on right side. When you will check out, push yellow button. Then a staff comes and counts plates that you ate.
A plate which somebody ordered comes on a black box. If it is that you ordered, you can take it. This style is different by restaurants.
Pudding and cream puffs also came on the day.
Finally, fee of this day was about 1,500 yen.
Many people were waiting already when I left the restaurant.
