Uobei Genki Sushi

If you are looking for conveyor belt sushi close to base, Uobei Genki Sushi is a great family friendly spot to check out.  About a 10 minute drive out the East Gate, it is located right next to Joyful Honda.  Upon entry there is a computer stand where you enter the amount in your party (English option available) and receive a number to wait for your table.  We went at 6:00pm on a weeknight and had no wait.  Our number showed up on the television and directed us to a table number.  Once seated you can review the menu next to the table or on the ipad provided at the table.  When ready to order you make your selections on the pad.  A short time later dishes will be delivered via bullet train or race car which the kids loved.  My husband enjoyed a variety of sushi, while the kids and I stuck with the chicken and french fries.  I did try some shrimp tempura rolls which were my favorite so far of any sushi spots we have checked out.  The kids finished dinner off with blue icecream on top of corn flakes.  Once you are done with dinner you make a selection on the pad then take your table marker to the front to check out.  All sushi dishes are ¥100. We are a family of 4 and spent about ¥3500 for dinner.  Uobei Genki Sushi is a chain but of all the conveyor belt sushi locations we have tried I found I liked the atmosphere of this one the best.  This would also be a great spot to take visiting friends and family for a sushi experience. – Angela Vaillant, September 2018

Prices are reasonable, the staff is learning English to serve their customers, and the atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. You can order from their set menu, or create your own experience by ordering a la carte. The restaurant is family-run and family-friendly (kids can even roll their own sushi).
