Tokyo is home to some of the most esteemed sushi restaurants in the world, but nothing beats a cheap and cheerful conveyor belt sushi outlet that offers plates of nigiri and maki rolls from as low as ¥110. Popular sushi chain Kura Sushi is known for its quick and efficient service as well as its fun and playful dining experience. The chain is currently present at hundreds of locations nationwide, plus several international outposts in Taiwan and the US. Now it’s opened a new outlet in front of Oshiage Station, and Kura Sushi claims it is the world’s biggest conveyor belt sushi restaurant.
This two-storey restaurant has 47 booths and 33 counter seats, which can accommodate up to 277 people in total.
The space is also decked out in ukiyo-e-style illustrations and colourful lanterns just like the chain’s Harajuku outlet.
Not only can you feast on cheap sushi, you can even play with the restaurant’s newest games and attractions. The Bikkura Pon capsule toy machine, which is usually installed next to each table, is now made bigger and better with cool digital effects. For every five dish you eat, you have a chance to win not only one but two capsule toys filled with exclusive character keychains or figurines.
There’s also Bikkura Gyo, a digital shooting game on the second floor, where you can win even more capsule toys.
