Japan: Conveyor Belt Sushi

Conveyor belt sushi

Conveyor belt sushi The Japanese have always been known for being extremely innovative and efficient — it’s no wonder they came up with the conveyer belt sushi.  Here you will find sushi placed on a rotating conveyor belt that winds through the restaurant and moves past every table and counter seat. Customers may place special orders via a touch screen system, but most simply pick their selections from a steady stream of fresh sushi moving along the conveyor belt. The final bill is based on the number and type of plates of the consumed sushi.  All the plates you see below cost $1.20~$1.80/plate…no joke.

 Each table has its own touch screen ordering system:

Hungry Cactus’ Verdict: B+

My experiences with conveyor belt sushi in Japan was surprisingly good!  It’s no Tsukiji fish market, but for the price <$2/plate, it’s quite the value…you can get tuna, eel and other seafood sushi.  Quite good!  Another reason why foreigners may like eating here is that there’s no Japanese menu!  Just take what you want! =)
