The Best Conveyor Belt Sushi in Tokyo

March 24, 2017 9 Comments

There are so many different foods Japan is known for – Ramen, Tempura, Shabu-Shabu, Japanese beef, Yakitori….. the list goes on. But the real headliner among the endless options is sushi. The problem then becomes where to go. Yes, there are plenty of seriously good sushi restaurants (Sushidokoro Ginza Fukusuke in Ginza is one of our favorites), but everyone should experience it delivered on a conveyor belt at least once. For a complete breakdown of the best conveyor belt sushi in Tokyo, read on.

(Side note: If you think you like sushi based on that California roll you had last year, think again. Get ready for the raw fish!)

 

Where:

Kappa Sushi – aka Sushi-Nova. Not sure why they have two names but they do. They have locations all over Tokyo, but we visited the one in Asakusa here:

〒111-0032, 1 Chome-22-3 Asakusa, Taito, Tokyo 111-0032, Japan

Getting There:

Tokyo’s metro system is SUPER easy to use. You should definitely be using it for transportation over a cab (plus it’s a tiny fraction of the cost). Take the Ginza line all the way to stop 19 and get off at Asakusa Station. Once you arrive, use public wifi (available almost everywhere) and type the address into Google Maps. You should be within walking distance!

What to Get:

You guys. There are no wrong moves here. The amount of options offered up here are just about limitless. There are rolls, nigiri, sashimi and more. Depending on how adventurous you’re feeling, you can try sea urchin, eel or some very large salmon roe. The salmon, tuna and sea bream nigiri are also YUM if you’re someone who’s just getting their feet wet.

Ordering:

One of the best parts about this place is the fact that you order straight from a tablet (complete with English menu!) at your table. No need to get lost in translation with the waiter. Just click and order. Just about everything comes by conveyor belt (except beer), so you can eat and then order more on your own time. At the end, just take your table number up to the front and they’ll ring up your bill!

How To:

The conveyor belt will bring your sushi out to stop at your table (whatever was ordered together). Once you take it, press the flashing button on the tablet to let the kitchen know you’ve cleared the conveyor belt. Then, dig in! Wasabi and soy sauce are both provided at the table 🙂
