High-tech sushi

What do you think of when you think about Japan? A country of technological innovation and all kinds of cool, flashy gadgets? Or do you think about the delicious Japanese food, like sushi? Those who think about both will be happy that you can experience those together when you visit Japan: at high-tech sushi.

High-tech sushi is the new variation on kai-ten sushi (conveyor belt sushi). With kai-ten sushi you take place at a counter with a conveyor belt at which different plates of sushi are placed, you then take the plates with the sushi you like to eat.
With the new high-tech sushi restaurant you also take place at a counter with a touch screen in front of you. You then order to sushi you like to eat, it gets places on a high speed track and send to your seat! A very cool experience, and perfect way to enjoy sushi.

Sushi counter, with sushi!

We went to such a sushi restaurant in Shibuya (Uobei, 2-29-11 Dogenzaka, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo) which was quite busy! The new way of ordering sushi is also really popular with the Japanese. The place is also quite cheap (105 yen for all sushi orders) while the quality of the food is pretty high! The menu has all the regular sushi dishes and also some quite strange ones: if you ever wanted to try hamburger sushi this is the place to go!
