so I went to the most popular revolving sushi restaurant in Japan, “Sushiro”. It is more famous in Japan than Kura-sushi! I’m sure you’re familiar with it, as it has branches overseas as well.

A brief description of “Sushiro“.
Sushiro is currently the most famous sushi restaurant in Japan, even more so than Kura Sushi.
Originally, a sushi chef from Osaka ran a private sushi restaurant. Later, he opened a 100 yen per plate uniform store. Expanded to the Kanto region. Developed the world’s first comprehensive management system for opening sushi restaurants. A major company became a shareholder, and the restaurant became the most reasonably priced and delicious conveyor-belt sushi restaurant in Japan.
Introducing the Japanese “Sushiro” system, New Year’s limited and slightly different sushi.
This is the Tokyo Gotanda branch.
I knew I had to wait my turn.
You can either make a reservation in advance using the app on your phone or touch the receptionist to wait for your turn.
I would recommend you to use the app to make a reservation. Because my number was 118, and by the way, the three groups in line before me, 114, 115, and 116, had made reservations using the app and came in after me. I was passed over for the turn.
However, if you make a reservation through the app and do not show up on time, be punctual in Japan because if you are not called three times, you will be put on hold and have to check in again, and you will be the fifth or later in line.
20 to 30 minutes of waiting.
My turn has come. When your turn comes. Scan the QR on the receipt for your turn number into the scan on the side. Confirm your seat.
You can find your seat number on the table or on the seating map, so check it before taking your seat.
Next, when ordering, you touch the tablet that you are all familiar with, and you can select English, Chinese, or Korean.
Now let me introduce you to the New Year’s special sushi.
The inside of the Gotanda store is a little cramped. The other stores are a bit more spacious and relaxing.
In the meantime, I prepared a cup of tea and a glass of beer.
For starters, I ordered a set of three salmon for 170 yen, which is very cheap.
There are two types of soy sauce: one is the common “Awase soy sauce” in Japan, and the other is “Amadare soy sauce” suitable for sushi and sashimi. This is a sweet soy sauce. There is no right or wrong way to choose, so choose whichever you prefer.
The wasabi is turned around on a rotating rail, so you can take as much as you want. It’s free.
At Sushiro, you can order not only sushi, but also desserts, side dishes, and ramen at reasonable prices.
Well, today came the New Year’s limited sushi set that I was interested in, the Special Tuna 7-Piece Set.
1,000 yen per plate for 7 pieces
The rice seemed a little messy, probably because they were busy. It’s not about the appearance, it’s about the taste.
Reddish tuna is pickled tuna. And the one with oil on it is chutoro. After all, tuna is delicious. It melts in my mouth, and when I bite into it, the softness and flavor spreads throughout my mouth.
And finally, negitoro.
I wrapped it in nori, dipped it in a little soy sauce, and took a bite.
The freshness of the scallions and the sweetness of the seaweed and soy sauce are perfect and complement the tuna. It’s the best.

I’ve never seen sushi like this in Japan, and it was my first time trying it too. It may not be fit for the Japanese palate.
Occasionally, Japanese sushi restaurants offer unusual sushi like this one
