Join us for a cheap sushi review in Japan as we head to a conveyer belt sushi restaurant in Osaka to try Kaiten sushi (回転寿司) for $1 a piece! Also known as a sushi train the rotating conveyer belt winds and twists by every table where customers can grab whatever they like or order a special custom dish or desert. Different colour plates represent different prices and the final bill is based on the amount of plates you’ve consumed. In our opinion it is one of the most fun ways to eat sushi in Japan. However, these restaurants are known more for their cheap prices than they are for quality, so if you’re looking to try the best of the best sushi in Japan this is definitely not where you’ll want to go. However, we still found everything to be quite tasty and we’d recommend this type of sushi (すし) restaurant for the experience and value it represents.

Conveyor Belt Sushi in Osaka, Japan | Cheap Kaiten Sushi for $1! 🍣 Video Transcript:
Well hello hello guys. Hey guys. It is lunchtime here and today we’re going for a truly Japanese experience. We are going to be having conveyer belt sushi. Conveyer belt sushi (回転寿司) which is also known locally as Kaiten sushi (回転寿司). Yes. So excited. Yeah we’ve actually had this before in other countries. Yeah. So this is our first time to have it though in Japan and we’re super pumped and we’ve brought our appetites.
So we finally found the restaurant. It was a little bit complicated because it is on a second floor. I know. We ended up walking through a casino trying to get here. Through a Pachinko Parlor. This place looked like a gas station from the exterior. It did. Super confusing but we made it. We’re upstairs. Second floor. They handed us this little map so we are table 29 and then you find your way to your own table.
And then on the side they’ve got the conveyer. They’ve got the conveyer belt with all of the little plates. On the side. Look at that. Everything looks so good. It does. We’re just going to dig right in. And I think this place just opened like a few minutes ago. I believe it opens at 10:20 am the morning so pretty early. You can satisfy your sushi cravings.
Alright guys so that was a wonderful conveyer belt sushi meal. A feast of sushi conveyer belt feasts.
It is time for me to check out. And as you can tell here this is all of the data we’ve accumulated. We have 17 plates. I’m not sure what the 14 means. I think that is just maybe our station. And I have no idea what that means. It also tracks our dessert items. Yes, it does.
We can press the check out.
We just finished paying the bill. We sure did. The way it works is you press the check-out button yep on the tablet. Then a guy comes over he makes sure you’ve put in all your plates. To make sure everything is being tracked. Then you go to the front with the little number you get when you first arrive at the restaurant and then you pay. You pay. Exactly.
The total was the total came to 2376 Yen which was what $21.70 US dollars. Less than 22 US dollars. Yes. For all of that sushi (すし). Less than eleven US dollars per person. It was so good. And we’re leaving stuffed. It was so good. Yeah. And it was just such a fun experience. Yes. I would come back again. In fact we have a friend we’ll be meeting up with in Tokyo and we want to take him there. We’re going to take him to this chain.
