5 Best Cheap Sushi Places In Nakano- Kaiten Sushi And Some Local Secrets

Looking for kaiten sushi (sushi train) or a good quality, affordable sushi bar around the Nakano Station? If so, this is definitely a list you should consult. I've included some local well-kept secrets as well as popular chains where you can get the bang for your buck.

Feel free to follow favy!

Niginigi (にぎにぎ)

In terms of just pure quality for the price, this is the best place to go. It's a small standing sushi bar that is very highly regarded by the locals. Pieces of sushi are from ¥100 to ¥300. If you don't know what to choose, just ask the chef for an "omakase" (leave it to the chef) and he'll serve you an assortment of excellent in-season fish. You can also have drinks for about ¥300-500. Most people pay less than ¥3,000 here. Located a 2-minute walk from the North Exit of Nakano Station.

Sakae Sushi (榮寿司)

If you're looking for a quality sushi bar at a cheap price, then Sakae Sushi should probably be at the top of your list as well. You can get, for instance, a nigiri sushi plate which includes uni (sea urchin) and ikura (salmon roe) for just ¥1,360. They have one item in particular that Japanese customers really rave about, and it's their "saba bo sushi" which is a mackerel rod-shaped pressed kind of sushi. You can get 8 pieces of that for ¥800. There is also a cheap drink menu. One cup of sake starts at ¥300. Sakae Sushi is located a 6-minute walk from the Nakano Station's North Exit.

Sushi Zanmai (寿司ざんまい)

Sushi Zanmai is a sushi restaurant chain you can find all over Japan. It's conveniently opened 24h, every day of the year. The restaurant is spacious too, so it's easier for a large group to walk in. They have sets that are around ¥2,000 and full courses that come with a good-sized Japanese soup for ¥3,000. For a reliably-good, reasonably-priced sushi, Sushi Zanmai is an excellent option. It's located a 3-minute walk from the Nakano Station's North Exit.

Kaisen Misakiko (海鮮三崎港)

Kaisen Misakiko is a famous kaiten sushi restaurant chain. It has two locations in Nakano. The sushi is nothing outstanding but the prices are cheap; plates start at ¥110. You order from a touch screen, which can be set in English, and the sushi comes from the conveyor belt to your seat. Both locations are in the Sun Mall, at a 3-4 minute walk from the North Exit.

Gansozushi

Ganzozushi is another pretty good kaiten sushi restaurant that achieves a good balance between price and quality. Some of their items are as cheap as ¥90 a piece. They have seasonal specials that you should really try when you go there. For instance, when it's in season and in abundance, the fatty tuna is sold below ¥100 a plate. Another thing to try is the "kobore ikura" (¥500) which are salmon roe sushi pieces that overflow with topping (that's what the name literally means). Located a 4-minute walk from the Nakano Station's North Exit.
