Want free all-you-can-eat sushi in Tokyo? Revolving chain wants your YouTube video in exchange

By Casey Baseel, SoraNews24

As one of Japan’s best-loved culinary creations, sushi is already pretty awesome, but it’s somehow even cooler when it’s at a revolving sushi restaurant. Being able to see the fish before you choose what to eat, the instant gratification of grabbing it right off the conveyor belt, and the high-tech fun of the technology involved, revolving sushi is an experience that’s not to be missed in Japan.

But you know what else makes sushi great? When it’s free.

Kappa Sushi, one of Japan’s most popular revolving sushi chains, has announced that it’s now offering free all-you-can-eat sushi to people who will make YouTube videos about the experience. You’ll get a full hour to eat as much sushi as you want, and in exchange all that the restaurant asks is that you upload a video about the experience, including footage of your visit to the restaurant, within a month of the massive meal.

▼ As the promotional image shows, Kappa Sushi’s menu goes beyond just sushi, with other options including ramen and desserts.


If that sounds like a good deal to you and your stomach, the next step is to fill out the online application form, which must be submitted prior to your visit (there’s no written stipulation requiring your video to be in Japanese). Applicants who are chosen will then be contacted by Kappa Sushi to set up the specific date and time of their visit to one of the chain’s branches in Tokyo. Anyone with a YouTube channel with 100,000 or more subscribers is welcome to apply, and while that rules out some smaller content makers, but if you’ve got a moderately large online following and a big appetite, the application form can be found here.

YouTubers with over 100,000 followers probably don't need this kind of promotion or free food.

A good example of not quite getting it. Would they call a news magazine with 100,000 subscribers and make them the same offer? They expect to reach 100,000 viewers or more for 2000 yen worth of sushi? They expect someone to sell advertising to their 100,000 subscribers for a cheap lunch?

Would be funny if one such YouTuber took the offer, and then did a terrible review and totally dissed them. I'd like that just for kicks.
