Experience sushi on a conveyor belt. One of those must-try weird things in Japan.
One of the most popular conveyor belt sushi restaurants, Genki Sushi offers a fun sushi experience for tourists and locals alike.
The one that is probably most well-known is in Shibuya, where there’s usually a line out the door. Is it worth the wait? Well, if you want the experience of having plates of sushi delivered to you on a conveyor belt, it’s one of those quintessential weird and fun things to try in Japan.
Genki Sushi Shibuya is unique in that it doesn’t have the traditionally rotating sushi on a conveyor belt. It’s all order-only, so you choose what you want on the tablet, and it’s delivered straight to you.
The Menu at Genki Sushi
Here’s what’s on their official site. You can get a good variety, even with just their 100 yen sushi. They also have weird options like hamburg sushi and tempura sushi, which aren’t seen often in traditional sushi places, but keeps it fun.
And of course, the main reason to try ordering is this:
How much should I expect to pay at Genki Sushi?
Check the types of dishes for the price for each. They vary from 100 yen to 450 yen (without tax), so it all depends on what and how much you eat.
A standard sushi platter that you might get at a supermarket contains 8-10 pieces of sushi. That’s about four or five plates. If you’re not a big eater, you might get away with paying as little as 400 yen if you only get four of the normal plates. However, I’ve seen massive stacks of plates at other tables, so if you can eat, eat away!
