Best Japanese Sushi Restaurant

Maruchu SushiI have been living in Japan for over 20 years and I eat out a lot. and on average, I eat out 4-5 times per week at a sushi restaurant in Japan. And the best best restaurant I have found is - I'm not affiliated with this website, but tell them sent you and see if they give you a discount. They slice their fish big, so you don't fill up on rice, and the quality is the best I have found in Japan. If you can read Japanese, they have an "In-Season" menu that is the best to order from because it is fish that is in season and the best flavour to eat them.

Kyoto Aquarium 5 Percent Discount



You will get a 5% discount if you bring your receipt from visiting the Aquarium. So if you are in Kyoto, and you went to the aquarium, stop by Aeon Mall (about 15 minute walk south along Highway 1), goto the 4th floor and look for the only sushi restaurant that has a conveyor belt. Kyoto. Conveyor belt sushi (回転寿司 kaiten-zushi?) (also called sushi-go-round (くるくる寿司 kuru kuru sushi)) is the popular English translation for Japanese fast-food sushi. In Australia, it is also known as sushi train (as the sushi goes around a track on a train, rather than a conveyor belt). In South Korea, conveyor belt sushi has become popular and is known as 회전초밥 (revolving sushi).

Kaiten-zushi is a sushi restaurant where the plates with the sushi are placed on a rotating conveyor belt that winds through the restaurant and moves past every table and counter seat. Customers may place special orders, but most simply pick their selections from a steady stream of fresh sushi moving along the conveyor belt. The final bill is based on the number and type of plates of the consumed sushi. Some restaurants use a fancier presentation such as miniature wooden "sushi boats" traveling small canals or miniature locomotive cars.
