Which side dishes do people order?

1. Miso Soup “みそ汁・赤だし”
2. Savory egg custard ”茶碗蒸し”
3. Fried Potato
4. Parfait “パフェ”
5. Cake
6. Ramen

For the past few years the popular sushi chain has been putting effort on side dishes.
You can find noodles, tempura, dessert and fried potato, all sorts of things you can think of.

I would recommend you to try Miso soup and  Savory egg custard so called “Chawanmushi”.
Miso soup matches sushi perfectly and Cawanmushi people like to eat in the end.
Both are very typical Japanese food.

Oh, by the way side dishes can cost around 100 yen – 500yen.  Check before you eat 🙂

How do people like to order sushi ?

Most of the people order sushi from touch screen ordering system.

You might see lot’s of sushi plates circulating conveyor belt and of cause you can pick one.
But the fact is, most of the people choose to order from touch screen ordering system.

This is because Japanese people do care about freshness of sushi toppings.
You will never know how long sushi plates were on the conveyor so..

Which sushi restaurant will you choose if you have children ?

Most of the people answered “sushi restaurant where you can sit in a table chair”.

Kaiten sushi restaurant is normally spacious and they have table seats for family and friends.
But some of them especially ones in the capital might be compacted.

If you are with your family it might be wise to check and book before you go.
