Sushi on Water in Tokyo 2010/7/20 01:47
One member of my party saw a show about a conveyor belt sushi like place except the sushi was floated down on a little stream of water.

I've been doing searches but I have not gotten very far and I was wondering if anyone has seen a place like this in Tokyo.

I've been unofficially appointed scheduler and finder for the trip.

Like this, right?

Unfortunately, the one in that video is located in Toronto.

I punched a bunch of keyword combinations into Google but had a very difficult time finding such Kaiten-sushi in Japan. Of course, Tokyo is such a massive city that you should be able to find it *somewhere,* but the best I was able to find online was in Saitama.

The store is: さんみ 回転 Sanmi Kaiten
Description: 水が流れているレーンに浮かぶ桶に寿司が水流システムはユニークで好評。 This store is popular for its unique system of sending sushi around on small "oke" in lanes of water. (An "oke" is like a little wooden or plastic bucket. So, they are not on boats.)

Address: 埼玉・さいたま市春日部梅田本町2−17−1
Telephone: 048−866−0632


I found another restaurant advertised with sushi on boats, but it is in Kagawa Prefecture:

This restaurant in Kobe uses boats, but its ratings aren't very good.

It may not be worth going to Saitama (or somewhere else) just for this kind of restaurant, unless you find something else in the region you want to do.

But, I got some of my information from a ranking list of 100 popular or notable Kaiten-sushi restaurants. Many of the others on the list are in Tokyo, so maybe something else will appeal to you:

Sorry for the many links in Japanese. Best of luck in your search.
