Tokyo Foodie: Conveyor Belt Sushi, Genroku Sushi, Ueno


Eating sushis in Tokyo isn’t as easy as it may seem. Especially when you want to try out one of the tourists’ favorite : the conveyor belt sushi. So let’s have a look at this all for 140 yen establishment in buzzing Ueno.


How does it look like?
A video is worth a thousand words.

How do they treat you?
Everyone only speaks Japanese and as in most sushi places you just eat and go. You aren’t supposed to just sit around. But everyone was really friendly and helpful with our orders.

How is the food?
Sushis are fresh and delicious. There aren’t any fancy sushis but mostly just the usual combinations. But they are made right in front of you by skillful chefs. For the price, it is a steal.


How much?
One price per plate: 140 yen. Free green tea. You pay extra for another drink.


I would definitely come back to eat there whenever I’ll be back in Ueno. With the night shopping streets just around, it is a great place to just recharge your energy before another shopping spree.

How to go there?

This little establishment is located in the Ameya Yokocho market.  You can see the signs outside advertising for a 140 yen for each plate.
The market is conveniently located behind the towering Yodobashii Camera building, which is directly across the street from the Ueno Park main entrance. Take the JR Yamanote line to Ueno Station, and take the exit for Ueno Park, once you approach the entrance to Ueno Park you’ll see across the street the Yodobashii Camera building, just head over that way, and walk around back, then behold the Ameya Yokocho market.
