Another one of my favorite things to eat in Japan is conveyor belt sushi. It’s basically a huge variety of sushi, sashimi, fried foods, noodle soups, and desserts that rotate continuously on a conveyor belt and you just pick what you like and eat til you drop. Regular items are usually a dollar for two pieces and special items like this ikura salmon sushi are between two and three dollars. The price is much cheaper than high end restaurants and I personally think the taste is top notch quality. Of course you’re going to get a fattier piece of salmon, a more flavorful ikura, or a higher quality scallop at a nice restaurant, but you’re also going to pay double or triple the price. And for someone who likes to eat(me), I need me some quantity at a reasonable price. This particular restaurant is in the running for all time favorite conveyor belt sushi restaurant because the variety is staggering, and regular and special items are constantly changing to meet the taste profile of hungry epicureans. These pieces of ikura salmon sushi are awfully delicious but there’s also fois gras, uni ikura, fatty toro, unagi and anago, and even roast beef sushi that is blow torched right in front of you. And on top of all that deliciousness, there is an extra conveyor belt that has toy trains on them to deliver your sushi from the kitchen to your table Shinkansen style.
