Conveyor belt sushi, also known as sushi train or kaiten sushi, is a popular option to enjoy quick cheap sushi in a fun way. Here are some of the best places for it in Shinjuku.

Numazuko Original Location

Numazuko is arguably the best conveyor belt sushi restaurant in Shinjuku, thanks to a solid reputation of guaranteed freshness and large pieces of neta (sushi toppings). They boast a direct delivery system that sets them apart from many other budget sushi places. Due to their success, they've expanded to Yokohama and Ginza, but Shinjuku is the original location. Their sake selection is said to be pretty good too. Try their 'kobore' sake (overflowing sake) served the traditional way in a sake cup within another sake cup that is square-shaped and made of wood. You won't go wrong with this place!

Located on the east side of Shinjuku station.

Himawari Sushi

Himawari is cheap and reasonably good too so you get the bang for the buck. The place is a little bit more old fashion than many other conveyor belt sushi restaurants now, with no touch tablets to order from. However, they do have English menus so you shouldn't have any trouble ordering if you can't read Japanese. They're famous for their ¥600 lunch special that includes a kaisen don (sushi toppings on a bowl of rice) and a soup.

Located on the west side of Shinjuku station.

Sakura Sushi

Sakura Sushi is conveniently located in the entertainment district of Kabukicho on the east side of the station. Restaurants in that area tend to be fairly expensive so it's nice to have this cheap conveyor belt sushi option. One plate has two pieces of sushi, and the average price is about ¥200, so for about ¥1,000 you can get 10 pieces of sushi. The restaurant is open all night (except on Sunday when it closes at 23:30), and many Japanese people go there for a late night meal after having drunk in the nearby bars and izakayas.


Oedo is a conveyor belt sushi chain that has many locations throughout Tokyo. In fact, they have four locations in the Shinjuku area alone! The secret to the success of Oedo is their fixed ¥160 sushi menu, super fast service, and reliable quality.


Gonsozushi is another chain that is worth going to. They are known for having a great variety with over 60 kinds of sushi to choose from including some seasonal items. The plates start at ¥125, and you can have some rare ones too if you're willing to pay more. Try the otoro (fatty tuna) or the uni (sea urchin) if you want something a little special.

This restaurant is located on the west side of Shinjuku station.
