Best 100 yen Sushi in Japan

Looking for delicious Sushi with affordable price in Japan? Then the best place to dine is one of these 100 yen Sushi restaurants! Now there are numbers of franchised Sushi restaurants in Japan, which offer decent quality Sushi dishes only for 100 yen per plate, usually in a conveyor belt style (Kaiten Sushi). Not only Sushi, but most of them also offers a variety of side dishes such as french fries, noodles and desserts. It’s now one of most popular place to dine for families in Japan.

Today, I’m introducing 4 most popular “BIG 4” 100 yen Sushi restaurants in Japan which definitely can satisfy your stomach and mind 🙂

1. Sushiro

Sushiro (スシロー) is the biggest franchised 100 yen Sushi store in Japan currently, and offers a great variety and trust-worthy quality of Sushi dishes. Most of Sushi dishes are 100 yen, but some of seasonal or special items costs a bit more. Sushiro offers a variety of side dishes and especially their Ramen and desserts are my recommendations.

Desserts are also available in Sushiro

As Sushiro is very popular, the waiting time can be pretty long (up to 2 hours at busy time), so I suggest you to book the table in advance by using their phone app!

2. Kura Sushi

The best features of Kura Sushi (くら寿司) is “additive‐free” and their proud “shari rice (vinegared rice)”. Fresh seafood products are served with selected quality Japanese rice, and also there are several other unique vinegared rice dishes such as curry rice, curry rice bread and rice coke (!).

To keep Sushi dishes on the conveyor belt fresh and hygienic, Kura Sushi uses special cover.

The best part of Kura Sushi comes in the end.. You can play a little game for every five plates. Simply slide empty plates into a special slot attached on a table and the game starts playing on the screen automatically. If you are lucky, you get a small prize which comes out from the box above the lane! (usually a small toy)
