Sushiro – Conveyor Belt Sushi

I love sushi.  Living in Japan, I get to eat plenty of it.  And what’s great is kaitenzushi, or conveyor belt sushi.  It’s very cheap, only 105 yen per plate, and very easy to fill yourself up.  While it’s not the highest quality sushi, it still tastes good.  One such restaurant is Sushiro (スシロー).  It’s a chain, and during the evening, it is very busy.  This particular Sushiro is in the Ishikawa area of Fujisawa.

Sushiro has a big selection of sushi to sample.  You can try the traditional types of nigiri sushi, such as salmon, tuna, shrimp, squid, salmon roe, and more.  I started with some salmon, tuna, and shrimp.

The top plates are salmon, bottom left is shrimp, and bottom right is chuu toro (medium fatty tuna).

There are two ways to get your sushi.  One is to just grab a plate from the conveyor belt that goes past your booth.  Just don”t take any that are on special coloured plates.  Those are reserved foods that are being delivered to a specific table.  You order those by using the touch panel screen.

While there are many traditional types of sushi, there are also some special, non-traditional sushi available.  I especially like the kalbi (pork rib meat) and shrimp tempura.

Kalbi sushi. I love this stuff.
Top is more shrimp sushi, then roast beef on the left, and shrimp tempura on the right.

At only 105 yen per piece, it’s a very good value.  A full meal for two people can cost around 3000 yen.  Also available are drinks, dessert (chocolate cake, ice cream, sweet potato, and more), and tako karaage (deep friend octopus).  I highly recommend it, not just for the sushi, but mostly for the experience.
