Japan 5: Conveyor Belt Sushi

Man, I loves me some conveyor belt sushi. You walk into the restaurant. You are greeted. You sit down. In front of you: a cup for tea, a saucer for soy sauce, a box with green tea powder in it, chopsticks, a box of pickled ginger (to cleanse the palette), wasabi paste, soy sauce, and a faucet for hot water. At about eye-level, the sushi goes by on a conveyor belt: small plates, each with a ball or two of sticky rice. Laid across the rice, a bit of yellowfin tuna, or bonito, squid, shrimp, red snapper, scallops, omelette, eel, salmon, octopus, etc. Some of the plates passing by are rolled sushi. Sometimes they are little announcements of things available at the counter.

If something looks appetizing, you take it. Most of the seafood is raw, but all of it is delicious. If you want something that is not on the belt (like a bowl of misu soup, sea urchin, or a beer) there is a button to push, which calls the waiter. As you eat, the small plates pile up. When you are ready to go, you call the waiter, who counts your plates and writes you a bill. I tended to eat between nine and 13 plates, and spend between 1600-3000 yen. I wish there was conveyor belt sushi here!
