Cheap conveyor belt sushi in Japan: Genki Sushi (元気寿司)

After introducing Uobei (魚べい) to you, I cannot leave out Genki Sushi. Unlike Uobei, it doesn't work with a one price concept, but with different looking plates.

The plates with a yellow/orange rim: 108 yen
The plates with a red rim: 183 yen
The plates with a beige rim: 237 yen
The checkered plates: 345 yen
The rectangular plates with swirls print: 486 yen.
