100 or 200 Yen Conveyor-belt Sushi Restaurant (Sushi Go Round) KURA くら (KURASUSHI/ KURAZUSHI くら寿司) in Downtown Tokyo and all over Japan

Sushi Restaurant - KURASUSHI くら寿司Food

One of my favorite conveyor-belt sushi restaurant chains is KURA くら (also called KURASUSHI / KURAZUSHI くら寿司). I usually go there every second month.

There are 3 restaurants around popular sightseeing areas in downtown Tokyo.
2 branches are located in Ikebukuro 池袋.
Another one is in Asakusa 浅草.

There are many 100 to 300 yen conveyor-belt sushi chains in Japan, but they are usually located in the suburbs, and are not easy to access on foot.

It is really rare to open 100 yen conveyor-belt sushi restaurant in downtown Tokyo.

Because rent in downtown Tokyo is very expensive so normally that's reflected in the cost on the menu for food and beverage.

However, KURA くら offers really inexpensive and good quality sushi in downtown Tokyo!

This sushi restaurant offers all sushi items for 100 or 200 yen excluding 10% dine-in tax.

Those sushi items have 1, 2 or 3 pieces on a dish.
