When you think of fast food, sushi isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. These kaiten sushi, or kaiten-zushi, restaurants in Tokyo are doing their best to make delicious sushi at a price anyone can afford.

1. Pintokona

Restaurant, Sushi

Pintokona blends quality sushi with the kaiten style of serving. Choose your dishes from the conveyor or put in a request with the chefs. There’s no tablet here, but with both Chinese and English menus to help out, the servers will be happy to assist you in placing any special orders.

2. Kura Sushi

3. Numazoko Sushi Bar

Restaurant, Sushi

One of Ginza’s most affordable options when it comes to sushi is Numazoko Sushi Bar. The multilingual menu makes it easy to order if you can’t find what you’re looking for on the belt.

With an ultra low flat rate for all their dishes, Uobei is a popular choice for the budget traveler. Ordering from a tablet makes it fun as well. Who says eating in Tokyo has to be expensive?

9. Numazu Kou (Numazuko)

Restaurant, Sushi

If it’s convenience and quality rather than price that motivates you, Numazu Kou in Shinjuku is for you. The high-quality ingredients justify the higher price point.

10. Nemuro Hanamaru

Restaurant, Sushi

Hanamaru offers the classic kaiten sushi experience. The price and quality are a fair match, and the boisterous atmosphere adds to the experience.
