4. If You Want Reasonably Priced Conveyor Belt Sushi, Try Himawari Sushi


Himawari Sushi is a conveyor belt sushi restaurant. It is easily-accessible given its three-minute walking distance from Shinjuku Station's south exit.

The restaurant has a U-shaped counter seating configuration surrounding the chefs, and the sushi will be placed on the conveyor belt. Not only can you enjoy conveyor belt sushi, you can also order directly from the chefs.


The menu is easy to understand and pricing is reasonable, with most sushi being 150 yen or 200 yen per plate, and each seafood bowl (kaisendon *1) costing 600 yen that comes with a kobachi (*2) and miso soup. Note that the seafood bowl is only sold on weekdays from 11:00 to 15:00, but it is recommended for those who want the biggest bang for their buck.
Lots of tourists frequent this shop given its English menus, and the shop is absolutely bustling with activity.
