Cheap conveyor belt sushi in Japan: Kura sushi

Previously, I already introduced two conveyor belt sushi places to you, Genki Sushi and Uobei, and today, I discovered another one, Kura sushi. All plates of sushi (mostly there are two pieces of sushi on one plate and for some of the more expensive kinds, you get one piece) are just 100 yen. They have special high-tech plates, so you can just grab the plate through the hole in the front and the plastic, transparent, dome-shaped lid will open by itself. You can also order sushi through the touch screen (in English) and it will arrive in the high-speed track located above the regular conveyor belt.

I am not sure if this is the case for all of the Kura sushi shops, but on tv, I saw that you can also play a game on the touch screen after you insert 5 empty plates in the slot located at your table. By winning it, you can get a small trinket/toy in a plastic ball.

You can find the menu with clear pictures and prices here. Warm dishes, such as bowls of rice, noodles, and udon with toppings …
