Conveyor Belt Sushi Tokyo

Japan is a foodie county and the only one I know that combines gizmos with dining. Pictured below in Tokyo’s Shinjuku district is a conveyor belt sushi restaurant a few steps below street level.

Conveyor belt sushi, or kaiten-zushi in Japanese, is Japan’s version of fast food sushi. The conveyor belt winds its way throughout the restaurant within grasp of diners. Patrons take food from the conveyor belt as it passes by. If you look closely at the photos you can see ample condiments including big tubs of ginger on the counter.

Would the novelty of kaiten-zushi draw you in for a bite to eat?
