Added to Yokota Travel in 2002, this “conveyor belt” sushi restaurant is still quite popular for its low cost and variety. If you go, you may have to wait in line for a seat. If there is a line, you will need to get a number from the machine next to the host/hostess. It’s in Japanese, but somebody will be happy to help you.
Once seated, you can grab sushi from the conveyor belt, or you may special order. Each table has its own ordering screen, which the staff will kindly switch to English for you. Special orders arrive via the conveyor belt on an elevated red tray that it color coded for your table. The special order screen will play a brief tune a moment before your order arrives. The price is determined by the plate color. There’s a handy chart at each table. Yellow and white are only ¥105, one is with wasabi and one is without (not sure which one). Black square plates are special and a little more expensive, but usually delicious.
Water is self-serve and located on the entrance side of the restaurant. There are two water stations. Additionally, each table has a hot water spigot and a bowl of matcha (green powder) for making green tea. Other drinks are offered through the special order screen. When you are finished, call a waiter using the button with a bell printed on it; they’ll count your plates and give you a card to take to the register.
SushiRo is open from 11am to 11pm. However, the last opportunity to be seated is at 10:30 pm. GPS: 35.718544, 139.335772. Brian Marriott, August 2002, confirmed Chris Kopp, May 2013, updated Roxanne Ready, July 2013, photos Michelle Nexon, July 2013.
