So, I think we got so caught up in trying to win a capsule toy that we forgot to be semi-informative here. Ha! The place we went to is called Kura Sushi, and they’ve got a bunch of locations. Our friends here know about Kura as well. When we told them about the conveyor belt sushi with capsule toys they said “OH I GO TO KURA SUSHI ALL THE TIME!” so it’s not just a local thing for us in Kichijoji. And the prices there aren’t that bad, if you think about it. We had 25 plates of sushi, 4 of which were single pieces and the rest were double, so we’re looking at 45 pieces of sushi altogether, plus a crab shell thingy, plus half an apple mango, plus a green tea, plus a soybean ice cream. All for roughly $45. Not bad! Oh: and we got one capsule toy with four heaping servings of disappointment. But those weren’t included on the bill :D
We also came at a good time, on a Tuesday at 2PM or so. It was pretty dead. We tried going on a Thursday night at 7PM a couple of weeks ago and it was AN HOUR AND A HALF LINEUP. Damn! It was so busy! I’d recommend going in the afternoon. That’s best.
The menu also had loads of stuff that we didn’t try, simply because we wanted sushi plates, but they serve curry and ramen there as well. We’ll try it out next time we go and let you know what it’s like. We won’t put all of our hope into getting capsule toys. We just had to win one or else we’d have gone mad. MAAAAAD. Next time we’ll be more calm, I swear!
Anyhow, if you feel like watching some more, we’ve got extra scenes here below. Yay!
