CONVEYER BELT SUSHI

回転寿司[KAITEN-ZUSHI]

An affordable type of sushi restaurant characterized by the conveyor belt that carries plates of sushi to be picked up by guests as they like. There are certain rules to be observed at kaitenzushi restaurants, such as picking up the whole plate instead of sushi pieces, not leaving your seat to pick up plates, and not returning empty plates to the conveyer belt. “Ah, my favorite sushi just passed by!” “I didn’t know you like such a connoisseur fish...” Kaitenzushi can bring out lively conversations among friends and family members.
