My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Japan. It has been 1 year since I moved to the UK. As we had such a lovely holiday, I want to share our memories there, and hopefully, some of them might be useful for you when you travel to Japan!
Today I will introduce some amazing restaurants you can enjoy in Tokyo. xx
1. Kaiten-zushi (circling sushi counter) restaurant
Kaiten-zushi restaurant is the style that you will take sushi from the sushi counter circling beside you. There are many options of kaiten-zushi restaurants all over Japan and my favourite restaurant is 海鮮三崎港(Kaisen Misakiko) which is a popular chain mainly in Tokyo. (Do not look down on Japanese chains, their foods are amazingly fresh!) There, you can also order your favourite sushi with the tablet on your table as well, which is easy for foreign travelers (usually, in many kaiten-zushi restaurants, you have to ask chefs in front of you directly). You can choose some languages on the tablet but sometimes translation is wrong. (Sorry about that!)
Soon after you order sushi with the tablet, your orders will arrive at your tables on a bullet train. (They will use 2 lanes. Upstairs for your orders, down stairs for everyone.)
In these restaurants, the price are told by the colours of plates. When you finish, ask a staff to count the number of your plates you had and they will give you a bill.
In Tokyo, you can find kaiten-zushi restaurants everywhere. If you see the symbol of “回転ずし” or “回転寿司” then that means kaiten-zushi!!
Be brave and jump into the new world! xx
