Enjoy 'conveyor belt' sushi at home


Yoshiaki Shiraishi invented conveyor belt sushi after a visit to the Asahi Brewery. As the owner of an understaffed sushi restaurant, he started the first conveyor belt sushi restaurant in Higashi Osaka in 1958. Called kaitenzushi or revolving sushi in Japanese, conveyor belt sushi restaurants have become more ubiquitous as affordable dining options. Priced from as low as ¥110, these sushi restaurants make it so anyone can enjoy sushi whenever they want.

JPY 11,000 for a tiny Lazy Susan? LOL.

It seems to me that children would love this and that it would be nostalgic for the adults. The restaurants that used to have this are crimped by people licking chopsticks and other acts of anti-social intrusions so this is a good alternative. And what's wrong with a little fun?

Buy two and put glasses of beer on the other.

I think we call it a Lazy Susan which is much cheaper but does not self-rotate.
