Sushi, no matter where you get it won't be "cheap" but it is worth getting anyways.


What about 100円 sushi? I usually never eat more than 15 plates of that stuff.
While not cheaper than ramen, it is quite comparible.


I don't believe I knew about that. I assume it is 100 yen per piece (or rather one piece per plate?)

Honestly, I am not a fan of sushi that spins around in a circle. I like mine prepared right in front of me, where I can communicate with the craftsman.

Notice also I have "cheap" with tentens, to notate, quality as well as price. I find the sushi in a windmill places to not be as good quality.. but your mileage may vary.

I used to love my 450-yen-a-bowl chashuumen lunches. :)

100 yen for a plate (2 pieces), usually.

The sushi isn't the greatest in the world, but it's not that bad either. Personally I don't care about all that cultural "food as art" crap, I just want to eat some food. And 100 yen sushi is good enough for me.

Wow, that sushi is really cheap! :o comparing that to the sushi in Panama. Is expensive and is not that delicious.

Yes, it is cheap. But it comes at a price. It's over a month since I last ate at a kaiten sushi, but i still occasionally find myself humming the "kappa sushi" jingle. ;)
