Kura Sushi Asakusa ROX | Asakusa
Experiencing the wonderland of sensory riches of conveyor belt sushi is must-do for any visitor to Japan, so why not go about the whole adventure in style, if you can?
That’s probably what sushi-chain giant Kura Sushi thought as well when deciding to team up with renown Japanese designer Kashiwa Sato, who transformed the space into a disneyland for (cheap) sushi and architecture-lovers alike.
Under the concept of “SightEating,” Kura Sushi Asakusa ROX offers a beautifully designed spin on the experience of eating conveyor belt sushi that - you guessed it - combines sightseeing and eating experiences all in one by boasting not just an eating area but also a space where customers can play Edo era-style fairground games.
Tablets for ordering (a common sight in conveyorbelt sushi restaurants) offer a mind-boggling 104 language options to choose from, so don’t worry if you haven’t mastered that 日本語 just yet.
Sushi plates starting from ¥125
