I've been wanting to check out the one near my home, I think this posts has convinced me that we should :)

There's a conveyor belt sushi place near my house, but I've been scared to go there. Their reputation is not so good in LA, but I think I should try it to decide for myself.

Do people in Japan have the same mercury paranoia that people in the US have? It seems like every couple of weeks, there's some warning about dangerous mercury levels in fish.

Since I eat fish at most once a week, I don't really worry about it. Plus, I figure if eating fish was that dangerous, Japan and the coastal cities in China would be deserted by now.

Hi
Remember me Sigal.
We used to go there all the time when we lived in Suzuka Japan. Miki just loves this place. I just showed you photos to DH, but I will save it from Miki because she will ask me to take her there.
Have fun Sigal

Hi, I just found your blog. All of your pictures are beautiful and my boyfriend commented that they are very professional. Are you a photographer? I also was suprised to learn that you live in Wakoshi. I use Heiwadai station everyday to go to work, but I have never been to Wakoshi, it is in Saitama, right?

As for Kaitenzushi I would recommend Kappa Sushi. It is not the best sushi but it also is a good value and you can order what you want to be delivered on a Shinkansen looking device, I often go there with my boyfriend.

Wow, do you live in Wakoshi? What a coincidence! I just found your blog by chance when I was looking for decent pictures of sushi. I'm in Wakoshi for 2 months (just arrived 2 weeks ago!), doing a research internship at RIKEN.

Your blog is amazing and your photos are beautiful! I'm absolutely loving Japanese food, so it's such a pleasure to read your blog!

I had kaitenzushi in Vancouver several years ago and didn't get the big deal. I tried it again in Moriya (Ibaraki) last year, and was quite impressed. Apparently I ate a lot of kiddie dishes which made my Japanese relatives laugh, like candied yam fries. All kinds of sushi that would never "by definition" be on a menu in Vancouver, because it's not raw fish. Bacon nigiri, beef nigiri... the list goes on but it was so long ago. I don't think it's the same restaurant as the one you went to, but it was pretty advanced compared to the one I went to back home.

Hey, we never did get a chance to go to that Planetes restaurant in your neighbourhood this time around, so it's probably a good thing you didn't make plans with us.

The talk of robots make me think of a delightful, syndicated team of happy robotic people making delicious sushi but it sounds to be nothing like that. I've actually seen one of those robots and they're rather boxy. A few kaitenzushi locations have opened in downtown Toronto. I haven't tried yet but they all look very nice and expensive. Maybe one day!

I usually go to Kappazushi, which is the only kaiten place in the town where I live. After some time away, I was shocked to find that they'd changed the system to computerised ordering, and, even better, the special orders now come direct to you on a mini bullet train! The sushi is only average at best (though still better than supermarket sushi) but the experience is so much fun. Just reading your post made me hungry!

On the third picture, is that supposed to be a small sink or a soy sauce dispenser? By the way your blog is awesome. Food and Japan are my two favorite subjects.

Drew

Hmm, that one is near my house; I should try it out. I don't love Sushi, but I am fine with just tuna, or salmon or the other "easy" or "non-weird" sushi, and being able to order from a robot would mean that I wouldn't have to be embarrassed at my wimpy choices...
