What is Kaitensushi?

Ueno sushi shop

By Charles Colfer    - 1 min read

Kaitensushi is a fast and delicous way to get a bite to eat. Usually packed around the lunch rush hour, it is best to go after or between major meal times.

The rotating sushi bar phenomenon has captured peoples attention and even made its way into other countries like the United States. Even though you're paying less than a traditional sushi bar, don't worry about the quality slipping. The sushi at these places is fantastic! This shop is barely a 5 minute walk from Ueno Station and if you're in the area, definitely worth a visit.

Hello everyone!  My name is Charlie, I'm a 21 year old foreign exchange student from Boston, Mass studying abroad for a year. I've always wanted to travel, especially to Japan, and so far it's been absolutely fantastic. I love photography and occasionally making videos/vlogs about my experiences here, and would love to get into any form of professional media/ travel guide work. From my experiences as a college student, I love to find the best things to do while on a budget, as I'm sure many of us out there are limited to! Traveling can be expensive, and sometimes all the options seem daunting or simply undoable. I'm inclined to believe otherwise! I'm a pretty outgoing person, love exploring, meeting new people and pushing my boundaries.
