The Sushi Scene
While sushi has gained popularity worldwide, the sushi in Tokyo still reigns supreme. At kaitenzushi, conveyor belt sushi bars, guests grab small plates of nigiri-zushi and maki-zushi as they glide past. Tokyo has kaitenzushi ranging from 100 yen per plate restaurants to high end establishments like Roppongi’s Pintokona. For the freshest catch of the day Japan’s largest fish market, Tsukiji, has shops that open early for a sushi breakfast. Affordable lunch sets at Itamae sushi, in Ginza and Roppongi, include nigiri and sashimi served with green tea and miso soup.
