Kaiten Sushi (conveyor belt sushi) has been popular in Japan at least for 20 years now.
It started as a place you can eat cheap but not so good sushi.
Sushi stayed on the conveyor hours and hours if no one picked it. When it get dried, they sprayed water so it could look fresh…
But Kaiten Sushi business has been highly evolutionized now.
You can place your order using touch screen on your table, and,Â this is the most amazing part,
sushi comes to your table on an express train. It’s very entertaining.
I recorded sushi going to other people’s table. ( The train came from behind, so I couldn’t get it coming to my table.)
