cheapest kaitenzushi in Japan

This restaurant has been featured on TV numerous times for having the cheapest kaitenzushi (conveyor belt sushi) in Japan. Have passed it several times and finally went in with a friend this afternoon.

EVERYTHING is 100 yen, plus 5 yen for tax (2 pieces on each plate). The only exception was the ootoro at 315 yen. It was good, not great, but was not looking for exceptional sushi at that price. If you did not see what you wanted going around, they would make it for you upon request. Our sushi chef was quite friendly and made several recommendations, all good.

The only "weird" thing about the restaurant was the rule that you had to have 7 plates. Assume if you had less than that, that you would end up paying for 7.

Full of Japanese, as well as a handful of gaijin.

There was a long line outside, but it moved quickly, to yet another line, indoors. But after 15 minutes we were seated and eating. If you are looking for a place to grab cheap sushi, consider coming here. About a 5 minute walk from Shibuya station (Hachiko exit).
